Wanted to share

So, I have had photo block for a while now.  I find myself working at the day job all the time and not taking time to get out there and shoot.  I decided tonight just to go through some of my old photos and see if anything struck me and I found these two images.  I took these a few weeks ago while on a day trip to Desota Caverns in Northern Alabama.  I loved them so I wanted to share.

Speak Up!

Every time I do a photo shoot, I learn something new. To get better at my shooting I try to think about the shoot and what happened and how I did. My lesson learned recently is to SPEAK UP! I am a low talker. Some would call it mumbling, but I hate that word so I like to say low talker. When I take pictures I have to be aware of how I am speaking and how I am giving direction. When I have a camera and my hands near my face and the people I am directing may be 20 yards away quietly telling them what to do just does not work! So my lesson and a great tip is to speak up and speak loud when giving direction to your models.

Happy shooting – and find the art in every day moments

Childrens Harbor Lighthouse - Three Ways


Not Part of my State Park Journey - But Still Scenic

Okay, so along the way to visit all the state parks in AL - I may make a few detours.  I had one such detour today at Lake Martin.  I stopped and took some fun pictures.  It was an overcast and VERY cold day today, which seemed to work well with the images I wanted to get.

Chewacla State Park - Auburn, AL

Up first on my Alabama State Park mission, I tackled Chewacla State Park in Auburn, AL.  This state park is a great day trip and it is just a hop and a skip from that state capital, Montgomery.  When you enter the park, if you follow the main road all the way through, you will go to a scenic overlook at the top where you can hike down to some great water falls. 

The scenery is gorgeous and picturesque.  I had fun hiking the trails and snapping photos!

2011 - ROCK ON!

Alrighty - what a long break from blogging and posting!  I have been here all a long working and growing Pratts photography, just need to find the time to talk about :) 

So for 2011, I am on a mission to visit all the Alabama State Parks and to share my pictures from my adventures.  Stayed tuned to my site and to stay in the know and to track my progress. 

Remember - let me know if you would like to book a session!
