The Fourth

  I had a great time shooting fireworks. I went to the Idaho Falls Firework Show and it was amazing. I did not have a tripod, so I had to hold my camera steady on my knees. Without a tripod it was hard to get longer exposure shots, so I used a shutter speed of 1/10...

Fine Art Print

I had a great time learning how to use macro filters. I was able to capture this image of a bee on a flower outside of the Spori. I used a zoom lens at 85mm and a 4x macro filter to get up close and personal with the bees. The bees would move in a split second so it...

Photo Contest

I decided to enter my photos into the Montana Stake Park Photo Contest. These are the two photos I chose, and placed them in two different categories. One in the native culture, and the other in the camping section, since this was along a river. To enter, the photos...

The Details: Macro Photography

It’s All About the Perspective: Landscape

Perspective, Perspective, Perspective How do you look at something? There are many different ways to look at a task, scenario or photo. It all depends on how you want to view it. I really enjoyed this project because it allowed me to think outside-of-the-box to come...

Bannack Ghost Town: Fine Art

In this first photo, I took it using bracketing. Then, in post, I merged the photos together in Lightroom and created a HDR effect. I raised the clarity and adjusted the color slides-blue and green- to make more vibrant and saturated. This photo was taken inside a...

People & People: Portraits

Portraits are my favorite to shoot. I took these in Bannack Ghost Town, in Montana. Shot in the Saloon, using continuous light. In post, I raised the warmth, exposure and contrast, smoothed her skin, and enhanced her eyes. The photo was noisy, so I used photoshops...
