I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Some Links and the Blue Snow Resolution

Well, maybe resolution isn't the right word. I actually decided (unlike most of my commenters) that I like the color corrected image the most. I.e., the image that I globally added more yellow to. Yes, the sky and the lake weren't as blue, but I could just bump up the blue saturation and bring them back to where they were.

The deciding factor for me was the tree. I didn't like the tree being so blue, it looked much better with accurate color. I do, however, REALLY appreciate all of your opinions. They made it much easier for me to figure out my own.

Ok, that's that, now onto some links for you.

And if 40 isn't enough for you, check out these 41 Delicious Flower Photographs, over at Digital Photography School.

A pretty complete guide to using aperture in your photography from the Discerning Photographer. If you can shoot on manual and understand exactly what you're doing, this post isn't for you. But if you've ever wondered about f stops or that Av setting, you probably should check this out.

And finally, 7 Things Photographers Should Never Do from Lightstalking. Pretty sound advice, in my opinion.

Well that should be enough to keep you out of trouble for a few hours, at least.

Head Tilt

I know this image is really simple, and maybe not that interesting, but there's something about it that gets me. I wasn't all that close to this seagull, but he (or she) was really checking me out. In a thoughtful way.
