44. Speed

Yes, I am out of control… who knew that at 50 years old I would revert back to a 5 year old and be having this much fun playing with little toys. What can I say, I needed to try something new with my 52 week photo challenge. Tiny has freed my imagination to run wild. I have no excuse to be behind on my weekly posts because most of the photos have been taken in my office, yard or the street in front of my house.  And when the year is over my grandkids will have some new toys to play with. Well maybe… 😉

What can I tell you… Tiny and Lola got stopped for speeding on the way to a photo shoot. She’s sorry.

7. Circle In A Square

One of Tiny’s friends recently told her about crystal ball photography. It can give the effect of taking a photo through a fish eye lens. Or if photographed from further away she can get even more creative, especially during sunrise and sunsets. The ball turns the reflection upside down similar to taking a photo on the inside of a spoon.

She ordered her 80mm crystal ball on Amazon for just $16.00. She can’t wait to take it on future trips with other photography friends to experiment and see what kind of fun shots she can come up with!

10. Dawn’s Light

Tiny and Lola are not early risers. But recently they were visiting a rocky patch of Florida coast with a group of ninjas. They both woke up early to tag along and enjoy a beautiful sunrise.

46. Tell A Story

This past week Tiny took her little dog Lola on a trip to Yellowstone National Park to photograph wildlife. Right away they saw a bison grazing in the tall grasses near the edge of a river. Lola was content to just stay close and be a good little dog while Tiny snapped off several shots. Tiny didn’t know at the time but the photos she took of the bison would be some of the last she would get that day. After Lola spotted a moose off in the distance, Tiny would spend the rest of the day chasing Lola and saving her from being eaten. First by the moose and later by an angry mother grizzly bear when Lola got too close to her cub.

41. Shades Of Gray

Oh yes I did! This post idea is not mine alone… I won’t begin to take credit/blame for this idea. Recently I volunteered to drive myself and 3 other photo blog friends on a photo outing. You can see where the conversation went while discussing upcoming blog themes…

3. Before/After

Tiny’s very favorite style of photography is contemporary glamour and her favorite photographer is Sue Bryce. She owns almost all of Sue’s Creative Live video classes and even belongs to her members only convocation, critique and feedback group. She has been studying Sue’s techniques for a couple years and loves it when she has a client who wants to have a makeover before a photo shoot. She is always sure to do a Before and After photo during each session.

4. Biggest Fear

I live in Florida so of course we all have a fear of sharks! I used to go occasionally, pool noodle in hand, to the beach with friends and float for hours. Now I prefer water aerobics at the YMCA or floating in a friends pool.
