Shooting with Wide-Angle Lenses?

I don’t have any lenses wider than a 50mm for my Canon cameras; but I think it would be fun to get some pics like these. Maybe next Christmas! TTFN SDG

In Honor of the Olympics!

Lindsay Grogan’s Journey to the Paralympics...  This was my final Multimedia Project video from last fall.  Lindsay was a great sport to allow me follow her around, ask her questions and photograph her.  I wish her luck as she begins the road to the Paralympic Games once again.  TTFN SDG





Wild Bill’s – A Fight For Charity

19 01 2010


CONGRATULATIONS, NELSON!  GREAT JOB!  Well, this is what I photographed over the Christmas break. Al (husband) and I took our toys and went to Wild Bill’s for Fight Night. We donated to Toys-for-Tots; and Nelson Bigles allowed me to shoot the fights with him. It was fun, loud and exciting; I’d do it again in a heartbeat! Thanks for the opportunity, Nelson!

Advanced Commercial – Winter Quarter 2010

1 01 2010

Here is just a taste of the Pro Photo Videos I watched today.  Jim Talkington gives inexpensive ways to set up a home commercial studio.  It was very helpful as I began to think about the next 10 weeks in Advanced Commercial Photography.  TTFN SDG





David LaBelle Interview, Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar

12 12 2009

I had the awesome privilege of spending some quality, quiet time interviewing David LaBelle on the final evening of the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar.  My heart agrees with his heart and I love that he has such an amazing platform from which to share.  You’ll love his son, Tucker, exploring my MacBook’s video capabilities.  He was a curious and informative young man and such a help to everyone involved with the seminar.  Though I don’t see myself as a photojournalist, Dave makes me want to push that side of me further to see the beautiful, happy things in life and to also give a voice to those in need.  I was also fortunate to spend a few quiet moment discussing homeschooling with his lovely wife, Erin.  We exchanged information and I tried to urge her to check out Athens in hope of moving to a homeschool friendly environment.  Wouldn’t it be awesome to have the LaBelle’s in our ‘neck of the woods’ for a time!  I really hope I have the opportunity to spend more time with Dave’s lovely family in the future.  Thank you, LaBelle’s for being so gracious to us!  TTFN SDG
