In Pictures

In my mailbox this weekend came the most beautiful magazine, the Autumn 2008 issue of Life Images by Somerset.

I have been eagerly anticipating its arrival and was not disappointed. So much beauty between the covers! It’s such an inspiration to me and really makes me want to work even more at my photography.

I am often asked about my photography. I have to be honest; I really don’t think I’m qualified to give anyone advice! I embrace the hobby and work at it when I can but there are so many people who are much better at giving advice. I use a Canon 30D and have some lenses that I love (namely a Canon 50 mm/f1.4, a Tamron 28-75mm/f2.0 and a Canon 35mm/f2.0 that seems to have a bum motor). I’m a huge fan of the book Understanding Exposure. I took two wonderful photography courses at The Showcase School in Atlanta last year; I still refer to my notes often! And I think the best thing anyone can do is just practice, practice, practice.

I’m so honored to have three of my photos in this issue. And just flabbergasted by the news last week that they had accepted another piece of my work for an upcoming issue. My joy is boundless.

  1. Oh, congratulations! That’s fabulous 🙂 I’ll have to go find a copy of that magazine. I also have that Tamron lens and really like it. Someday, I’d like to take a photography course.
