Have you seen my Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Basics Course on sale? It’s a great tool for people who are just starting to use Lightroom. To see more detailed information about the course, please click here. I have to admit that my audio isn’t the best so I felt I should give you all a great deal. I did put a lot of time into this course to help you understand Lightroom and feel it’s so worth the money.
This is a fun abstract I took at Lake Tahoe. It’s so easy to get caught up in the beauty of the place as a whole, but when you take time to look at small details your photography will bloom and take on a whole new perspective.
To see the before and after image, please join my new facebook group here. I also like to talk about the photograph a bit too. I would love it if you participated and shared your behind-the-scenes of an image or just joined in to see the fun.
Kevin has wanted a Copter since they came out. I thought I’d share these with you all. The debate is on the table.
I hope you check out Lightroom Basics and of course, comments are always welcomed. 😉

What do you like in life? Think about it and then photograph it or the concept of your passion.
Photography is not only for the visual experience in life, but it can be a documentation of your passions. For example, I love to hike with my husband, but while I’m hiking I really pay attention to details. The rock formation with the rock climber is awesome, don’t get me wrong, but I absolutely go crazy over desert flowers growing between rocks. I also love animals so how can I not photograph a desert chipmunk checking us out while we eat lunch? 🙂 And I can’t forget my love of history. Capturing anything with historical value really floats my boat.
These are personal photographs that make ME smile and that is what life is about…the experience! I am a tree hugger because of my passion so I’m affiliated with several conservation groups. I also want others to enjoy what I’ve experienced so I work with the hospitality industry. It’s a good feeling to know that when someone stays in a hotel that they will see my work and feel my passion. Once you see the variety of photographs that you have accumulated, take the next step and figure out what you can do with your passion.
If you want to see the before and after of “Ouch” come join my private FB group. 🙂

So excited about ON1 PHOTO RAW!!
I was honored to be a guest on the MGAPXL show this past Monday. We had a blast chatting about photography and all the goodies that go along with it You can watch the MGAPXL Episode 11 – Macro Focus here or below.
I really had a fun time chatting with some awesome people. One thing thats great about photography is that I get to meet people from all around the world.
In my last post I was really excited to check out the poppy fields here in Southern California because with all the rain we’ve been having you would think there would be hills full of flowers right? Sadly, there was nothing but open fields of dead poppies and grass. There were a few poppies here and there that had sprout out from grass as we drove by, but nothing compared to the fields of golden yellow that I had photographed throughout the previous years.
It’s a site to see…maybe next year? Hopefully!
I’m looking forward to our next road trip soon and will share the fun on my new FB community! If you have time I would love for you to join our new community, check it out on Facebook here.
On Friday I was invited to our local high school for career day. I thought what the heck, if I can inspire the students to pick up a camera and photograph, why not.
It was really exciting to see some students with their cameras and it was refreshing to know that they really love photography.
Thanks Bonita High School for the invite. It’s always a pleasure.
