Cargo Pants

I took this picture of cargo pants with the macro function on my Canon SD600 digital camera. With a SLR camera the detail could be much more defined but I am pretty pleased with the function on a point and shoot camera. It almost looks like it's corduroy but they are khaki.

Boston Beer Works

I loved how this sign looked. I brought the picture into photoshop desaturated the color slightly I wanted the blue light to pop.

Gummy Worms

I used to like gummy worms...I haven't had these in a long time, I was all excited to eat them but they just didn't taste like they used to. So I decided to do a candy photo shoot in my kitchen on the nice white counter with really bright overhead track lighting. I brought this into photoshop ran levels and changed the blending modes to make it not look so bright.

Red Balloon

It was my boyfriend's birthday this past weekend. I decided to do a photo shoot with the balloons I gave him. I placed this balloon on a black chair and had some track lighting on it, in photoshop I ran levels and messed with the blending layers a little bit to give it a faded look.

Tools of the Trade

So one of the new themes for JPG magazine to be voted on is called Tools of the Trade. Nearly every profession has a tool, the thing that helps get the job done. The tool I took a picture of is my mouse and the trade is graphic designer.

These Shoes Were Made For Walking

So I did a photo shoot of my shoes. When I took drawing classes one of the first assignments was to make a drawing of your shoes, I decided to do the same with a camera. If shoes could talk they would plenty of stories of where they have been.

Florida signs

13' Gator

Some cheesy touristy signs at a gas station in Florida. There really was a 13' gator in the gas station but it wasn't live. There were hundreds of baby gator souvenirs for sale, which was kinda sad and cruel.

This is one of the many photos of mine you can find and purchase on I thought I'd give this site a shot, I've never sold any of my pictures before. It's a pretty cool site, a community like flickr except you can purchase the work. I wonder how many none artists there are that visit the page to purchase art. Well, I'll find out, it was free to join so I have nothing to loose. Let me know if you have suggestions on which pictures I should add to redbubble that I've posted here on my blog.

This is another shot of a park in Boston, between Fenway and the MFA. This picture was originally taken in color. Since it was a cloudy day I decided to make it black and white.

Vote Now!

I finally submitted a photo to JPG Magazine. Please click on the link below and vote for me! I would love to get a photo published. I discovered JPG Mag a few months ago, you submit one photo to a theme, they choose three themes to be in an issue members get to vote on which photo represents the theme most. It's a pretty cool site, with a community kind of like flickr. This is just one more step into becoming a photographer. This gives me inspiration to go out and practice more. The theme for this issue is Passport. I chose this picture of Lake Champlain, because it is one of my boyfriend's favorites out of the recent pictures I took of New England. Since New England is that special place I can't stop talking about I had to find a picture of it.

In Flight


I love how the sky looks way up there. I'm glad I got these seats to I could take a picture of the wing. I wanted to try to take some of the ground but by the time you are allowed to use electronic devices we were up too high. I love traveling.

The T Under Ground

Of course a trip to Boston isn't complete without riding the T! I took pictures of T stops outside and underground.

Wednesday, August 8, 2007



It was such a cloudy day in Boston the day I visited. I gave this picture a little bit of a sepia tone so the sky wouldn't look so washed out. I'm pleased with how the trees lined up and the shadows beneath them.

Stitch Assist Panoramic

Fenway Park

My camera has a stitch assist function for taking panoramic pictures, which is awesome! I just put this image together in Photoshop, it's not the perfect panoramic ever. Not all of the pictures lined up perfectly, and the lighting in the clouds was off slightly. I came across some good tips for taking panoramic shots.

  • One of the most important steps you can take is to make sure that you have turn off your auto white balance on your camera. This will ensure each image in the series has the same colour tone.
  • One of those cheap 'pocket' tripods can make a huge difference.

Best Place on Earth

B&W 11

Fenway Park, of course! I was so happy to get a chance to tour Fenway while on vacation. It was so cool to see the park all empty, kinda eerie though. I love how these old seats look, they aren't all that comfy though, but worth it to see the Red Sox play. I decided to turn around while everyone was listening to the tour guide and take a snapshot from behind. These seats are a part of history.

I decided to go artsy with this photo. When my parents, boyfriend and I were looking over the pier I noticed our shadows on the ground and took a picture. It almost looks like the picture was pieced together. My parents dog is also in this shot, I'm not too sure where he is though.

Shots like this make me wish I had an SLR camera with a better macro lens.
