  • Photo 101, Day Twenty: Triumph and Contrast

    Krista says: Triumph comes in all shapes and sizes: Today’s Tip: Triumph usually denotes drama of some sort, no matter whether it’s big or small. Playing with contrast is a great way to enhance your photos for a more dramatic effect. Drama in these two photos shows how an early misty morning looked on yesterday. Looks […]


  • Photo101, Day Nineteen: Double and rotation.

    Cheri says:  Double can be interpreted in many ways. Yesterday I took photos of a spider’s web with dewdrops on the threads. The threads can also be seen as double parallel next to each other.

  • Photo 101, Day Eighteen : Edge and alignment

    Michelle says: Today’s Tip: To make sure your edge packs a punch, use a photo editing tool to check the alignment and adjust the image, if needed, so that your edge is perfectly straight. Original photo Aligned  

  • Photo 101, Day Seventeen: Glass, squares

    Taking photos through glass gives a different way of showing objects or gives an interesting point of view of the object. Windows!

  • Photo 101, Day Sixteen : Treasure and close up

    Michelle W says: Today’s Tip: Get close to your subject — either use the zoom function in your camera, if it has one, or physically move closer to it. This is my TREASURE close up! I was standing below him. Lighting isn’t that good but it still shows him watching me.

  • Photo 101, Day Fifteen : Landscape and cropping

    I practiced some after sunset photos. This is the photo I have taken. The TV antenna and power pole are spoiling the photo. I used to crop the photo. I think it looks much better. What do you think?

  • Photo 101, Day Fourteen : Scale and observation.

    Michelle says: Today’s Tip: Don’t just point and shoot. Observe your scene before pressing the shutter, considering how all the elements in the frame interact with one another. Make an object appear larger through a ground-level POV. Place two things side by side in an unexpected way. Scale(Size) of the truck. Children and tall slide!

  • Photo 101, Day Thirteen: Moment and motion

    Chery says Our lives are made up of big events and tiny moments. Ultimately, life is fleeting, and oftentimes it’s these small moments, this motion, that we love to document. A MOMENT IN TIME I’LL NEVER FORGET! Kiss, kiss! Bobbie kissing my son!

  • Photo 101, Day twelve: Architecture + monochrome

    Monochrome is my favorite way of photographing. Cheri says: Today’s Tip: As we explored yesterday, color is a powerful element in photography. But let’s not forget black and white, or monochrome, which can be very dramatic! Black, white, gray, and shades in between interact in the frame in dynamic ways. ARCHITECTURE + MONOCHROME Palm tree […]

  • Photo 101, Day eleven : A pop of color

    Today, pay attention to how color affects your images. Experiment with one color, and think about how to feature it prominently. Today’s Tip: As you train your eye to look for color, keep it simple: Choose one bold color against a neutral background, instead of several colors competing for attention in a scene. Look for […]
