David's Shots

David here... Susan's nephew.

Awesome! Lots of flowers, some good opportunties to take pictures, and it beats the cold (or Toronto area).
oh yes.. great smoothies at the Fudge Factory.

Re: shooting
I learned a lot by watching others and taking tips when given. I've grown to like manual focus a lot more. My aunt and I did fine. This is one of the hobbies we share.

Below are my photos..

In the High Desert... Photoshoot

Well, it has been a long time since an entry. College classes and teaching had taken over.

My nephew David is visiting now (from Canada). He is on spring break.

This weekend, he and I took a photo workshop out in the desert. The desert flowers are blooming in Borrego Springs. There were a dozen of us in the group, and we spent the last three days shooting images of nature, flowers and whatever else came our way.

I am going to post a few of my shots here, and then in the next entry will post David's.

I learned a lot about my camera, and was able to pick up numerous tips for the other photographers in the group.

Each spring, we hope for a great floral bloom in the desert. It depends on the rain we have. This year was apparently, a pretty good year.
