Encouragement From a Fellow Photographer | Sarnia/ Lambton County Photographers

Dianne at Bunny Trails Photography and I were chatting on Twitter yesterday about how uninspiring the weather has been lately for expanding our photography skills. I went out with my cameras shortly after lunch and came back in with nothing but some good exercise. She went out at perhaps the same time as me, but she came back in with photos. She tweeted me to check out her blog for some inspiration, and inspired I was. It's all in the perspective you take.

So today, I headed out again, cameras around my neck and looked for some inspiration. I was also attempting some shots using my aperture and shutter settings versus my usual manual style. I'll show the differences in those in a post tomorrow. I confess I had a very unfair advantage today. We got a light dusting of snow last night and the sun was shining by 8am this morning, so you couldn't help but be inspired! Regardless, I did shoot several things from a different perspective than I might normally use. It was fun! I came back in cold and with soaking wet knees, but I was happy with what I was able to achieve today.

Thank you Dianne for your encouragement! May you be inspired this week too!

Because we remember moments, not days...

Amazing how perspective can change (many) things! My favorite is the one of the tire swing in focus with the red berry bush out of focus in the foreground. I LOVE this one!

Thank you, Beth! I was pleased with how it turned out. Looking at the back of the camera, you just never know :o).

These are all just stunning! Even more stunning than finding that you mentioned me here. LOL!! Can't believe it took me this long to get over here.

Anyway, they are just beautiful. I really do love them all. I'm so glad that I was able to offer inspiration! I always feel that it's the other way around. These ought to be framed and hung. :D
