Shooting stock photos – Lansing photo day

Had a good day trip with my sister to Lansing Michigan back in March, it was good to get away from the day job for a while.  Some reflections: I googled “things to do in Lansing” for some ideas of places to go Went with the flow when I ran into unexpected things like this … Continue reading

Milestone – Car photos accepted for two month exhibit at local coffeehouse

So I mentioned back in August that I had become a member of the Ann Arbor Women Artists, who organize many of the art exhibits in coffeehouses around town.

Shooting Stock Photos – Detroit solo photo day

A couple week-ends ago I found myself with some free time on a nice sunny day, so I went into Detroit to take photographs, my small way to help out by providing positive images of Detroit for stock photo needs – I had a blast! Spent over an hour at Eastern Market, caught some new shots … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – January 2016

Other than the news of photos accepted to Blueprint, not much to report for January. I’ve made some time for photography, most of it photographing some logos between running errands and also submitting photos to other stock websites, trying to catch up there… I’ve been so successful with Shutterstock that it feels like a lot … Continue reading

Milestone – Photos accepted by Blueprint 2016

Got some great news recently – The four photos I submitted to Blueprint, my college’s literary magazine, were accepted!  They were: Alone – From the Skogafoss waterfall in Iceland Big blue – taken at the Glacier Lagoon in Iceland: White on black – Ice on the sand near the Glacier Lagoon: Stand out – It spoke … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – December 2015

Over the holidays I finally found/made the time to process photos from this summer and fall and submit them to Shutterstock, so I’m up to 1435 photos. I even took some time during a visit to Detroit to sneak in some photos as well…  So the new photos at Shutterstock included those Detroit photos, many … Continue reading

Shooting stock photos – Outside a UM football game

I didn’t write a blog entry at the time because I hadn’t submitted photos yet, but I had a really fun time in early Fall taking photos of fans outside the University of Michigan football stadium.  Here are a few:   Things that went well: Found a great spot in the path of people walking … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – November 2015

Into December already, school  semester flying by and no time to do much with stock photography, but plan to over break.  Not that I didn’t take any photos, lots of departmental events to take photos for, and students seem to appreciate having photos they can post. Waiting to hear if my Iceland photos made the College … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – October 2015

October had lots of excitement, including the publication of the travel stock photos article in Digital Photography School, now with over 900 shares!  Also had the two photos I submitted accepted at the Ann Arbor Women Artists Fall 2015 Juried Show at our local district library.  I was told at the opening reception that there were … Continue reading

I started the blog in June 2014, hit 1,000 hits in August 2014, then things slowed down as I was not able to do as much due to the demands of my day job, … Continue reading

Milestone – Article based on stock travel photography in Iceland to be published in Digital Photography School!

So back in June I went to Iceland, had a wonderful time… I participated in the GREEN Energy Program then spent a few extra days driving around and taking photos of anything I wanted to, glorious time.  I didn’t write my usual tips article based on my experience for this blog because I proposed an article about stock … Continue reading

Milestone – Accepted to AAWA Fall 2015 Juried show!

You might recall I recently became a member of the Ann Arbor Women Artists.

Monthly reflections – September 2015

In September my teaching job needed most of my time, but I managed to take some photos around town. In the most exciting news, my proposal to write an article about stock travel photography tips for Digital Photography School was accepted! I submitted and waiting to hear back from them, can’t wait to see it in … Continue reading

Monthly reflections – August 2015

Wow, that’s summer gone.  I do plan to write up the trip to Iceland from back in June, but waiting to see if there might be interest in that piece at a professional photography website and it can’t be published elsewhere first, so cross your fingers on that one. August included some good times taking photos in … Continue reading

Shooting stock photos – solo photo day driving up north

Recently had a fun time driving up north to Mackinaw city. Long story but it was just a quick overnight trip, and leaving super early to spend an afternoon on Mackinac Island on my own didn’t appeal, so I figured I’d just take my time, start the drive mid-morning, and since I was on my own … Continue reading

Shooting stock photos – England

The first week in August I took my sons to England, had a good time, had fun taking photos. Unfortunately as I mentioned in my end of July update I had set the photos to too small for Shutterstock during another trip and didn’t notice it until halfway through the England trip, so only one day … Continue reading

Milestone – Ann Arbor Women Artists membership

So I’d been thinking about it and finally did it this month. I became a member of the Ann Arbor Women Artists group.  I had seen their name around many of the coffeehouses in town that have art exhibits and had set it as a goal this summer to become a member. Looks like in … Continue reading

Monthly Reflections – July 2015

And now we’re into August, hope your summers are going well! Just returned from a family trip to England, took a few photos, though also realized in trying to submit photos of the Underground strike quickly due to their timeliness that somewhere toward the end of the Iceland trip I set my photo size to 4 … Continue reading

Monthly Reflections – June 2015

Yikes, July is just whooshing on by and I haven’t written up my end of June posting yet, oopsies… Had a great time in Iceland, will be processing those photos and the 4th of July photos too, just so many things I want to do this summer…  I did catch up on processing the logo photos … Continue reading
