simply tell me what you want.....


due to our cold and snowy weather keeping me indoors, some of my photos that i'll be sharing here this month, could be old. {as in "shortly before our blizzard"} i'm sorry.

on a happier note, i'm going to do what i said i would do in regards to sharing my photography tips and ideas with all of you {but not until february}and now this is where i need YOU. please, please, please send me any and all of the questions you have regarding anything photography related. i don't care what the question is, well as long as it's related somehow to photography, or how many questions you send me...i just want to know what YOU want to know. it's that simple. 

i'll put all of your questions together and answer as many as i can, all while sharing some of the things i've learned over the past five years. the path to learning anything and everything photography related never ends and if we share what we know and what we've learned, well then we all end up together on that path, side by side.

thanks everyone. i'll be waiting to hear from you. OH, and a personal email is just fine if you don't want to ask your question in the comments section.

  1. I like the invitation of the walk circling deeper into the wooded area. Can you hear it calling to me away from our cold and snow?
    I am not educated enough in photography even to come up with a question. Maybe something will occur to me before February.

  4. Ohh so many ... Do you have mnemonics or other fun ways to remember or approach all of the techie things our cameras can do?

    I know you love apature priority, why? Do you ever choose shutter priority for things other than motioin issues.

    Do you have 'go to' settings and how did they come about?

    I could go on and on. I'm so excited to learn more from you :)))

  5. Your photo reminds me of a walk we once took in the woods on Mt. Hood. Now if my photo would have been so lovely.

    I know I will think of more questions, but one I have is: Do you ever use flash? If so, what works for you? How do you set your camera settings so it doesn't wash out the colors?

  7. Your heart is always so big...xo

    My question here is about showing motion...On the manual settings of my camera how do I show motion...ie a moving soccer ball, a duck flying of the pond...

    Hoping your week-end is full of hot chocolate and cozy blankets :-)

  8. How do you achieve the particular "look" your photos have without them being black/white, yet soft and peaceful? {Does that make any sense?}

  9. Is it necessary to have photoshop to do amazing editing or can you achieve good shots by editing in picmonkey or basic iphoto?

    Have a great weekend!

  11. Playing catch-up...love your letter to 2013! My brain is dead right now, but I'm sure I'll think of something to ask. Usually I don't think of it until I'm learning it!

  14. I don't really like messing with photo shop. For me, its not user friendly.

    What settings do I use to show motion of water, like over a water fall?

  15. Yikes! Of course, I have questions!

    1. Do you have any idea what I need to do to capture action volleyball shots? I have a Canon T3. The action usually takes place in big gyms. I can get pretty close though. (Well, kind of....)

    2. What software is best for editing photos to achieve the low saturation look?

    I'll probably have more questions when this headache goes away.

  16. I don't have any questions b/c I'll never do more than just snapping shots of my kid :) just keep shooting and posting and I'll be happy.

  17. I love your blog and all your photography. I am currently a point and shoot girl, but deep down have a yearning to explore further, and learn photography. I love taking pix of my 4 year old and my family. The question is this: where to start? what type of camera? My friend who is an excellent photographer, told me the other day his camera was $800...way over my budget. Can you say a good camera, reasonably priced, for the point and shoot types? and how to move on from there? you are great. thx.

  18. First, your two previous posts were so touching and journalistic, thank you for sharing them with us. Let us hope 2012 could only be the lowest of lows and things go up from here.
    As to what I want to know......do you have enough airmiles to catch a flight to BC and give me personal lessons?????
