I Dream of Knitting:

I mostly have been dreaming about spinning a lot more someday. I add a few fibers to my wishlist, and I’m excited the basement will be done soon so I will have the room.

Photography Adventures:

  • I was blessed and privileged to photograph the March of Dimes event in Greeley, CO. What an amazing experience!

  • I purchased a 55-200mm f3.5-5.6 lens for this event, it wasn’t an expensive lens but it made a huge difference in the quality of my photos!
  • I have been taking classes on Creative Live from Susan Stripling and Jim Garner, which really helped my photography and story telling skills.
  • Tip for this week – backlighting. Try putting your light source behind your subject, whether it’s the sun, a flash, or a lamp. This is a great tip for hard light!
