Holiday Gift Guide: Professor Kobré’s Lightscoop for better indoor photography #giftguide

I take a ton of photos for the blog and while I am in no way a professional, at all — I do try to share only my best photos. The trouble with taking indoor photos is that our home is tiny and has very little natural light. It’s so hard for me to get […]

A new toy showed up at my door this week! A toy that makes a geek, such as myself, run around doing the happy dance all over the kitchen! The Panasonic Lumix G5 is a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera and my very first step away from the point and shoot. I have no idea […]

Wordless Wednesday – My kids and the camera

Finding photos on my camera that the kids have taken is one of my favorite things… usually. Now that Mr.T. is learning about photography in his art and design for business class this semester, he’s been actively taking photos (and changing all of my camera settings) as well. Oops! I had thought Mr.T. took these […]
