Rose-2 by RawPoetry
Rose-2
a cliche rose picture to remind people that I am still alive and occasionally do things other than study. One day I will get back to photographing things on the regular.

Summer
Behold: a leaf. A leaf of great leafyness. (have you ever thought about what a weird word 'leaf' is? I am saying it over and over in my head right now and it doesn't even sound like a real word).
Many things technically lacking about this photo, but it is the first non-portrait photo I have taken in ages, so it is a step in the right direction.

I am always more than happy to hear any constructive criticism. Improvement is pretty rad and I can seldom accomplish it without outside help.

Other nature-ish things:

All you need is... by RawPoetry
All you need is...
and now "all you need is love" is stuck in my head.
A friend of mine asked me to photograph her wedding last weekend, so I will breaking out of my (year? 2 year?) hiatus by sharing some of the detail shots. I have a new camera, a new lens, and a rekindled interested in photography. Yay.
Always open to hearing any constructive criticism about my work.

Thanks for looking! :)

Does anyone still remember that I exist? Maybe? Because I do! I am very much in existence! I have lungs and a pulse and everything! :D
Life is good, and photography is making a comeback in my life! Wooo!
If anyone actually reads this, I'd love to hear how things have been!

Like my photography? Check out my Photography Tips!

- Photo Tips- small things that make big differencesSo I decided that I'm too much of a nerd to not write some kind of instructional photography article.
I've fought the urge for a long time, because I have such an incredibly large amount to learn that I feel wrong telling other people what's up. But hey, I got off work early today and ate half of a pizza and didn't feel like getting off the couch so I did it anyway. So there. :stare:
If you disagree with any of this, feel free to rant at me angrily over the internet.
Also, I'm sleepy and I didn't proofread this much and there's a chance that none of it makes any sense at all. :meow:
Anywho, here are things that I have learned the hard way. There are a good deal more, but I decided to start with just five, that are very general and apply to all areas of photography.
Carly's Photography Tips- small things that make big differences.
1. Focus
This seems like it should be self explanatory, but sometimes on your tiny little camera screen it can be very hard to tell if you've gotten a
- Photo tips - setting up a macro shootHere are some more photo tips. I probably could've done a better job on this, but I'm quite tired right now. I hope you find it helpful anyway.
Also, I feel bad using examples from my own gallery, but I'm tired and it required less effort. :shrug:
If you haven't read my first article yet, here's the link.
Photo Tips #1 - Small things that make big differences
Carly's Photography Tips - Setting up a Macro Shoot
I will start off with a few disjointed thoughts:
I am a firm believer that it is possible to take a beautiful photo of absolutely anything. But that being said, I do not believe that any one person can take a beautiful photo of absolutely anything. We all have a different vision; we all see the world differently, and there are certain 'ordinary' things that strike some people more than others. Now I don't say this to discourage, and I certainly don't want anyone to li

I like taking pictures, riding ambulances, and jumping out of planes!

Hi, my name is Carly and I love my camera! I am currently employed as an in-hospital newborn photographer, but I also independently pursue nature, macro and conceptual photography.

I am still an 'aspiring' photographer, and I am always eager to learn and grow, so if you have critique or tips I would love to hear them! I will also happily provide photography critique to the best of my ability! If you would like to swap critique, or would like to geek out over photography, or just want to chat, feel free to send me a note! :dummy:

Also, Snorkelmoose.
