Profile Information

About Me:
I've been addicted to taking snapshots since the 6th grade, but only recently begun to explore how-tos and techniques. I've finally purchased my own DSLR and am eager to make that huge expense worth it. I'm trying to learn something new about photography everyday. It's not hard to learn more, but it seems impossible to learn enough.

P.S. I love new friends, but I don't accept friends who haven't posted any work yet (or even a profile picture) - I like to know that you'll be around MSS for a while / have made some effort before I open up my blog to you. It just makes me feel more comfortable. Thanks!

Merry Christmas!

Posted on December 26, 2008 at 5:22am 1 Comment

I usually keep my blog friend's-only so I don't pop up on the main page . . . but I wanted to say Merry Christmas to EVERYONE - the great, talented artists I've become friends with here - and the countless others I have yet to discover and learn from.

Thank you everyone for the feedback, critiques, comments and friendship.

No matter what your faith, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season filled with joy, peace and lots of picture-taking.

And like all my… Continue

Big Move

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am moving to Connecticut (from VA) tomorrow. I don't know how long we will be without our belongings or internet - could be a while. So, if I don't respond to comments or comment on your wonderful pictures or post anything - that's why. I have already packed up the 40D as carry-on - so hopefully when DO return I'll have some worthwhile shots to share.

I'll miss you guys! Wish me luck.


Weigh-in on Jefferey's experiment if you get the chance

Posted on July 30, 2008 at 11:49pm 1 Comment

My shutterspace friend Jefferey is doing a fun project. He has posted several good shots of his dog and requested we rate them "delete" or "keep," in an effort to illustrate what constitutes an upload-worthy pet shot. If I had taken any of them, they would likely be on my page. This in itself is telling - what is good for me might be a delete for Jefferey? Then maybe it isn't "good enough" after all. It is an interesting way of challenging ourselves to do better and not settle. And bravo… Continue

For everyone who was treated to WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION about my schemes for making money to purchase my new camera - soo sorry! I post most entries friends-only and that was an accident.

A National Photo Contest for you Big Boys

Posted on May 3, 2008 at 1:30am 0 Comments

Hey everyone. Some of you might already know about the Maidenform Photography Contest, but I thought I'd share. There is a $20,000 prize and chance to shoot an upcoming ad for Maidenform for the winner - and there is a lot of crap that has been submitted so far! Unfortunately, it is limited to U.S. (and maybe Canada) residents - and you might have to sign up for a myspace if you don't have one.

If I was ANYWHERE near ready to submit something myself, I might've kept this on the… Continue

Good to hear from you. Saw Janet last weekend at an Ed Heaton ( Seminar in Colchester. I see Gary and Roger every few weeks, we meet locally for lunch. My picture taking is in spurts. Took a whole bunch of a Band and I was on the cape a couple weekends ago took some there. Been playing with the Automate>Photomerge in CS4 to create some panoramas. I have been spending quite a bit of time attempting to learn post production with CS4 and Lightroom. I still feel like a dear in headlights when CS4 opens. I hope to take some time this weekend to capture the change of colors, it should be the peak autumn weekend. Ultimately, the weather has been horrible for getting out and taking pictures and this weekend sounds like it's not going to be the exception.
Hope you and your family are all fine and the deployment ends soon

Hi Anna, I'm so pleased with your comment on my Highland Sunset. I know what your saying about the frustration with scenics as they can be as tricky as any studio work. I also practice the rendering of the image and do some work in a lightroom. Adobe Photoshop is my tool of choice. Remember; "only show your good images". In this case, this is my front door view and as I've lived here for fifteen years, it would stand to reason that sooner or later I would get a decent image. Thanks again for stoping by, I hope all is well in Washington, it is truely a magical state. It's great to hear from you.

You're so far away! Is it beautiful? Went on a little vacation, took lots of photos-they all suck, very disappointed. Still babysitting on Mon. & Tues. and expecting another grandson 7/17/09 (her birthday) so I need lessons from you on how to handle two of the little critters. How many years between your girls? Working the rest of the week, this is my busy season and have taken on the job as Dock Master for Stonington Harbor Marina. Are you in Bremmerton? Would love to see recent shots of the girls when you get a chance. Hope all are well and happy, best of luck getting settled - two moves in just a few months, WOW.
