My view

Welcome to 'Bird's Eye View'!

When I was 18 my father handed me a Nikon and told me to get in the car. We drove through sleepy little Iowa towns and down winding gravel roads. He started me on what will be a life long journey of seeing the world through the lens of my camera.

To me photography is an art. The art of capturing a moment or a natural expression is what I love to do. I will give you direction and then find your personality within that pose.

What I see through my lens is no different than what you see every day - the only difference is I have the ability to stop time and provide you with those memories.

Photo Challenge 4: Alterations & Editing

This photo challenge, Jess & I were to take one photograph and change it in as many ways as you would like- to achieve different looks.

This is the road that I take everyday on the way to and from work. This view is on my way home to get the boys.

I have looked at this for almost 4 years, and I took this stormy evening as my opportunity to photograph it.

Here is the original:
Here are my changes to it:

Photo Challenge 3: Duplicates (or more)

This weeks challenge was to find duplicate objects and photograph them in an interesting way.

I love this picture! Three farmers in the field picking up rocks in the early morning...

Head over to A Thousand Words to see what her inspiration was!

Photo Challenge 2: Objects in the Raw

Miss Jess did a great job with this challenge, I really had a rough time.... I think because I found nothing of interest to take a picture of in my house. We were not allowed to do anything to the photos after they were taken and this has proven to be a real 'weakness' of mine! Not because I think that you shouldn't edit your photos... but because I honestly think that if you don't you are leaving so much on the table as far as what the photo COULD BE!

My father taught me that taking the picture is only a fraction of what being a photographer is, the other 3/4 is in the dark room, or in the digital era, during the editing process!

I am so glad this one is over... I am ready to get out of my house and find things that peak my interest a little more!

Photo Challenge!

My friend Jess and I are challenging each other to think outside of the box with our photos... this weekend it was to find things that were not meant to be letters, and spell out our last name.

Other than my 'wonky' Capital R, I think that I did a good job...
