Day Three: “Water” — Image Orientation

Day Three: “Water” — Image Orientation

In the Caribbean. The water is beautiful.


We all have stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it symbolizes a place we’ve left behind, or one we dream of visiting.

How will you interpret today’s theme?

Today’s Tip: Ever wonder whether a photograph will work better horizontally or vertically? After you snap your picture, rotate your camera and take a shot from the other orientation — horizontally if you first took the picture vertically, and vice versa. Which way works better?

Day 1 Home-Developing Your Eye

When I think of home I see the Mackinaw Bridge because I live in the upper lower of Michigan. The bridge is 5 miles long and it connects to upper Michigan. Also lakes are a big part of Michigan, I live across the street from Lake Huron.

Day 17: Photography 101: Glass


Incorporate a form of glass into your image to add a layer of complexity. When I saw these glass bottles it brought back some great childhood memories.


Day 16: Photography 101: Treasure


Show us something (or someone) you cherish. This was easy my husband and Maggie.

Day 15: Photography 101: Landscape


Today, snap a picture of a landscape. It’s a big world out there! Show us what you see in a landscape. andscapes generally focus on wide, vast depictions of nature and all of its elements, from formations to weather. In this genre of photography, you won’t find much of a human presence: nature itself is the subject. A focus on nature isn’t mandatory, however — you can capture a sweeping panorama of an entire city, town, or industrial area.



Day 20: Photography 101: Triumph


Today, let’s bump up the contrast for a bold take on triumph. Triumph comes in all shapes and sizes

What does triumph mean to you? In this picture you can see what triumph means to my dog Maggie!


Day 19: Photography 101: Double



Today, you and your camera are seeing double. Double can be interpreted in many ways.

This is one of my favorites.
