My personal adventures in photography

Updated on February 13, 2010

Photography is wonderful

This a small collection of various photos I have taken. My collection is slowly growing,and I have learned in a short time that photography is absolutely amazing! A photograph allows you to see everyday things in new ways,and it never seems to get old. These are just a few of my favorites. Criticism is much welcome,as I would love to learn more about what I could have done to make my pictures better. And of course,compliments are just as welcome!

Many of them have some slight editing done. Mostly I experimented with different colors,saturation,cropping,etc. I have a fascination with black and white photos,and have found that just changing a photograph to black and white can give it a whole new feeling. These were taken with a Nikon D60,which my friend has kindly allowed me to borrow. I have to say,this camera is really a lot of fun! I loved taking pictures before,but my little point and shoot digital camera just wasn't capturing the moment in the way I often intended. I most likely will buy one of my own soon,so that I can pursue my new found hobby even further. My goal is to learn how to use the camera to capture what I see in the most original,and artistic way possible.

I know very little about photography at this point,but am eager to learn more. If by some odd chance anybody would like to use any of these in their hubs,please feel free. They do have my name in the corner,but that is only because I'm quite proud of my pictures,no matter whether they are great or not.

My photos

This is a Greylag goose. I liked the original picture,but the black and white just made it stand out more to me. I like the strong contrast of the dark feathers with the white feathers.

To me,this photo brings out my cats personality. She is a bit moody,and you can see that she looks as though she is plotting some sort of evil plan. I darkened the photo,and changed the coloring a bit,in order to really show off what the picture is a

This was taken in my back yard. I noticed the way the tree bark was curling and peeling,and just thought it looked interesting.

I just felt this would make a great picture. This was left laying outside during the warmer months. It remains one of my favorites.

      Thank you Katrina. I have to say that is one of my favorite pictures. It's nearly impossible to get a sweet,angelic looking picture of her,so I work with what she offers. :)
