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
- Carly's Photo Tips - Butterfies and BugsMore photo tips! I must stress that I am no kind of expert in any way, these are just tips and techniques that seem to have worked for me in the past. If anyone has any other suggestions of improvements on what I've written, please let me know!

Butterfly/bug photography
Bug photography is pretty high up on my list of favorite things to do. Even when I end up without any results that I'm happy with, the experience of running around in the warm weather sticking my nose in the dirt is immensely enjoyable for some reason. I am by no means anywhere near an expert on the subject, but I have spent a lot of time doing it, and have learned some things along the way that I'd like to

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.

Interests
Well, I am pretty much giving up on my attempts to become active again. I'm flying to Germany tomorrow for 10 days. The day after I get back I'm going to be going back to school, and three weeks after I get back my hubby will finally be coming home. I'm going to be pursuing a nursing degree, so the next few months/years are going to demand a huge amount of my time.
Hopefully I'll have some good shots from Europe, but other than that it looks like photography is going on the back burner. This has happened before and I always come back to it eventually, but it may be a while this time. Thanks so much for all the support and kindness I've been given over the past few years, every compliment and critique truly meant a lot to me! :love:
