  • your site ranks high on yahoo and i must say your consistent writing style deserves your blog to be such high in rankings.i relished your writing style.keep it up.

  • so you think this way on this topic. i am not sure whether i am with you or against you on this.

  • Do you care if I put part of this on my site if I post a link to this blog?

    • Quoting or referencing content is fine as long as there is a link back to give credit.

    • Hi, Amy!!I LOVE your website! You are so taenetld. Where you did you learn about Photography, the technical side and Photo Editing? Not sure if you took a class anywhere or just trial and error. You definitely have a GIFT I have always loved Photography too, (as a hobby only for me though) since my Dad had a SLR camera when I was a little girl. I have a Sony SLR and I’m learning. I just enjoy taking pictures of my family and my kids but I need more practice. =) Thanks!!

      • Your IP Address is the same one as several spam postys I’ve gotten… BUT – for everyone, spammers included – the software on cameras can be manipulated and part of my “talent” lies in knowing how to use my camera — part of Macro shooting lies in depressing the camera button halfway – and activating the auto zoom features. The night shots with flashing lights require either full auto or a special preset dedicated to FireWorks shows. Any star pictures or moonlight shots use a special preset for night shots on tripods.

        If you have a secure and hard object, such as a tree or automobile (car, truck, van), then you do not necessarily need a tripod – I have crystal clear shots while the vehicle is moving at 60-plus miles per hour – because I set the camera against the solid frame of the car and braced my hold, then pushed the button to take a picture. I have gotten some amazing cloud shots and building shots that way.

        Know your camera like you would an intimate partner or spouse – because? Your camera will NOT work at its best unless you know – and I mean *KNOW* how it will react in different circumstances – because you need to have BOTH skill *and* knowledge when challenging or sudden changes in events leaves you with the award-worthy moments. Test your camera in as many different situations and environments as you can.

  • i tried reading your website from my xperia x10 but it wasnt visible properly.is your website mobile supported?

    • I have no idea. I use different devices myself, and I’m just now getting over the basic WordPress curve; this new wave of Mobile support website technology can be confusing. Adobe Creative Suite 4 has thousands of devices for its compatibility database – yikes! Thanks for raising these issues. This means I need to be doing some more homework 🙂
