Monday's Musings: Life Lessons from Migraines

by Mary Denman   @MaryDenman
I had a great post planned for today. But it's too hard to think right now. 

Why? I'm in the throes of another migraine. It will end. Eventually. But in the mean time, it makes thinking hard. Especially if I want to stay on track with my thoughts! 

I've suffered them for quite a while now. Years, in fact. I am doing better overall. Yet, at this moment, this particular one has been going on for quite a few days. Twelve to be exact. But who's counting? 

I know I'm not alone. Millions suffer from migraines. It can just feel like I'm alone during ones that drag on for days. 

I'm thankful it's not a full blown 10-pain-level-go-to-the-ER-kind of migraine.

Photo Tip Friday: Personalized Father's Day Gifts from your Photos

by Mary Denman     @MaryDenman
With Father's Day fast approaching here in the US, I wanted to give you some ideas of how to use your photography for personalized gifts. 

All of us know a dad who may be hard to buy for, so instead of a new tie or socks, (and my hubby has actually asked for socks before), why not spend a little time thinking about something more personal for him. 

That's where your photography can come in, to help create a memorable Father's Day gift. 

Let's get started.

Wordless Wednesday: Photos from the Conference

by Mary Denman    @MaryDenman

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday!

Last week, I was the conference photographer for Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. (Yes, it's a mouthful!) 
In addition, I took head shots for almost 40 clients. 
As a result, I have a TON of photos to go through and deliver.
I think it's about 2,278,621 shots, more or less.......   ;)

I will be back for Wordless Wednesday on June 8 and then photo tips for Friday, June 10th. 

Enjoy these shots from the conference and I'll see you next week!

Photo Tip Friday: Portrait versus Landscape, Part 1

by Mary Denman    @MaryDenman
There are two main orientations of your camera in photography: portrait and landscape. 

When composing a picture, it's good to know if one orientation will produce a better shot. 

There are rarely hard and fast rules in photography, so it's good to understand the strengths of using each orientation. 


As you learn more about when to each of them, your photography will improve. 

Let's get started.

Photo Tip Friday: Change your Perspective in Photography and Move

by Mary Denman @MaryDenman

Today, I want to teach you about moving around to get different perspectives in your photos. 

I have a beautiful rhododendron in my yard. It's amazing how the time of day, cloud cover and perspective can produce such varied pictures. 

In this series, I used the same cluster of flowers at the top of bush and moved around it, photographing over two day's time from different angles and in different lighting conditions to show you how many variations you can create. 

I think this will help you see how important it is for you to move while doing photography to take different angles of the same subject.  

Let's get started.
