My husband and I are planning a vacation this December, and as of right now I have narrowed it down to either Iceland or Norway. I have heard that both are excellent locations to see the Aurora Borealis, which is my main intention. But if there are any natives from either of these places, I would love to hear suggestions for places to go or things to do to help in making the final decision!
No one will probably read this, but I need a reason to procrastinate so I'm writing it anyway.

Over the past few years, I have been learning the immensely difficult but equally important lesson of how hard it is to give up something that makes you happy now for something that you know will make you happy later. Nursing school has been an incredibly difficult and humbling experience, but this December it will finally come to an end and I will be able to reclaim some of the other parts of my life that I love.

I have kept up with photography a bit over the past year (mainly family photography), I have gained an immense amount of new knowledge (looking at damn near all of my photos on here makes me cringe), and I have acquired some new equipment. I'm really looking forward to making photography a big part of my life again.

That being said, there is still one more semester to push through, so I am now ghosting out again until next year. Looking forward to rejoining this community in the finally not-too-distant future!

I'm not dead! Here is a butterfly!
This probably will be the only thing I post for at least the next 6 months. But wanted to stir away a little bit of the dust.

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.

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.
