Upcoming Event

On November 5th there is a event, Large Scale Polaroids by Phil Bekker. Polaroids are really interesting to me so hopefully I'll be able to check it out. Even if I don't make it tomorrow its showing at Hagedorn Foundation Gallery until Dec. 19


So Ive talked about my dogs before but they serve as so much inspiration to me. It is allowing me to be become more patient as a photographer because they are all over the place. Check out Shinobi just being lazy.


The other day I was shooting and I took some pictures of a tractor. It had rained the day before so there was a lot of mud and puddles. I'm happy with this shot because of the reflection in the puddle. Im not happy because I took this at like 1:00 and it was so bright.

My Camera

With all the new information I'm getting at school I am experimenting with my digital camera, an Olympus e-620. I found this review on it and learn more about my camera. I found it easier to follow than the manual. So much more to learn, but I am already getting better images.

Study Study

So I have my first midterm of the quarter tomorrow. Its on parts of the camera, aperture, shutter speed, etc. Hopefully I will do good but I have to go study light meters because I've only used the light meter in my camera.


I need to buy a tripod. I'm sick of not having one. The school allows us to rent them out but I did that today and wasn't even able to shoot today. It was frustrating so I'll just rent it out tomorrow again and hopefully I'll get to shoot my panning assignment or my self portrait.

Lissa Hatcher

I had never heard of Lissa Hatcher but in this months Professional Photographer she has a article about her life. I checked out her website and she has some great images and has won some awards. I really enjoyed reading her story.
