My Family Flying Kites














This is My Song - 2014 365 Project

Thanks Nichole for giving my kids a fun afternoon in the sun today.

Experimenting with a Panorama

I experimented doing a long panorama of a beautiful cloud scene from yesterday. The top picture was all that I could get in my shot with my 24mm lens on a full frame camera. But I knew that it felt like it was missing the "whole" cloud story, so I took another 15 pictures to see if I could get in a more detailed view. I used the Microsoft software called ICE or Image Composition Editor. I tried using Photoshop to stitch all my shots together, but with all the horse power that Photoshop uses to do this kind of shot, it was taking too long. My hubby has used ICE for his panoramas and when he processes Brenizer shots, so I thought I would use that instead. WAY faster as far as processing the photo so faster gratification :). So, the question is, which one do you like better?

Fresh Spring Snow

Pictures from enjoying yesterday's snow storm. It was such a heavy snowfall and she was a willing participant of my idea :).

What does a photographer do on a wonderfully snowy day? Yep, she grabs her camera, a cute girl, finds a great location and snaps some snowfall shots. Why waste a good snow that is going to only last a few days!

It is so fun when kids when are having fun together. When I asked Levi and Lily to tickle Will, they had no problem getting right to it. I just love listening to children's laughter.

Tim Timmons, Group 1 Crew and Big Daddy Weave Concert St. Cloud, MN

I had a chance to take some fun shots at the Tim Timmons, Group 1 Crew and Big Daddy Weave Concert on Friday night. I love shooting at concerts and really do love the challenge of getting shots in really difficult lighting situations. But, that is what makes it great when things go great and you can get some fun shots of the singers and band members. Here are just some of them from the other night. At some point I really should get back to finding a few more. :).

I can't wait to go through the rest of my pics and see what else I captured. They were all really great to see!
