new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

i shot this last year when i was taking taking pictures of various gerberas, discovering what great subjects flowers are for pictures... but i never posted. i like the image and i've been wanting to post, but feel that i'd do it differently today.

i'd probably have the light more to the side and add second, less intense light from the back or left to define the outline of the petals. maybe. i'd also be more confident about focusing manually and exactly with live view instead of using autofocus. finally, i'd tighten the aperture in order to get the entire flower into focus instead of just the petals.

still, it's a shame to have it sit all alone in a dark, hard disk, so here it is.
