Snowy Tracks

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. -John Ruskin

Phone Photography

For my 18th birthday, I got a new phone! It’s a Windows phone… I decided to go for something a little different and more unique than the iPhone which I feel like everyone has. (Almost anything is an upgrade from my slide keyboard phone with a 1.3 mp camera). It has a camera comparable to, if not better than, the iPhone camera. Phone photography has become extremely popular because it’s so convenient… Not everyone brings their camera everywhere with them, but it’s pretty safe to say everyone has their phone with them almost ALL the time. Nothing on a phone has beat a Canon or Nikon, for example (yet)… but it’s better than nothing!

Anyway, here’s one of the best pictures I’ve taken with my phone camera so far. It does even better than my camera with focusing on some items!

Late Christmas Post

Merry (late) Christmas and Happy New Year! I didn’t get the chance to make a Christmas post over the busy holiday season, but the Christmas season should last for the rest of today (being Three King’s Day) at least, especially with all the snow we got in New York (which, unfortunately, mostly melted today). Enjoy the late Christmas cheer! I’ll hopefully have more time to post now that the holidays are over🙂

Photo shoot!

As you’ve probably noticed, I mostly take pictures of nature or landmarks or architecture or events… I don’t have a lot of fancy photography equipment or enough experience to do a legitimate photo shoot with families or for a wedding (yet…), so I figured this was the perfect place to start- with my own family. It’s always fun to try new things with my camera… This was my first experience as close to an actual photo shoot as it was (with my own camera and my sister and I as the photographers). We definitely had a good time experimenting with different lighting in the field and seeing where the winter sun hit our faces for the perfect picture.

These were all taken on a warm, December day… It almost looks more like October. My next goal is a winter photo shoot… Preferably with snow🙂
Enjoy!

The one with the crazy curly hair is my sister🙂
