Mixed Bag

7 Jul

Today is a multiple photos in one post kind of day!

But first, I’m going to start with some exciting news.  A few weeks ago, I reached out to a well known landscape photographer and he agreed to an interview.  I admit, I squeeled like a little girl while doing a happy dance.  In the interview, he lays out his thoughts on what it takes to be a successful landscape and nature photographer.  I’m in the process of putting everything together for you guys, planning to post it on Tuesday.  Believe me, if you like beautiful photos, you will want to read this! =)

Next, I want to tell you a brief story.

The other day…which, if you know me, you know that means “sometime”, but I couldn’t give you a time frame, though it wasn’t so long ago that I’ve totally forgotten about it… haha  So, the other day I got a very sweet text from a friend who said she loved one of the images I had taken.  Obviously, that meant a lot to me.  As I’m sure most of us would agree, success as a photographer takes a lot of hard work and time invested so it really is nice to be appreciated.

She followed that up with asking if she could use the image as her computer wallpaper, which I agreed was a great idea.  I love seeing other people get something out of my art. =)



And last but not least…  Over the past few weeks I’ve shared a few photos that showed the face behind the camera.  Today, I’m sharing a self-portrait that’s more my speed.  The abstract, Scavenger-Hunt-y kind!

Hope you are all having a lovely Saturday! =)

    That’s awesome! Your photos deserve to be on lots of walls and desktops 🙂 I don’t know about you, but when i’ve been told a photo has been used like that, it’s a big smile kind-a feeling!

    Love the “self” portrait! Great idea! Esp. with the family (?) photos in the background 🙂

      Agreed, 100%. It’s nice to feel like the effort we put into our craft is appreciated!

      Yup, photos of little Shannon. 🙂
