Photog Fun

A couple weeks back, Leanna and I went on a photogging adventure downtown. She's the proud new owner of a Canon Rebel Xsi (the upgrade from my Xti), so we were going out together to try it out. I'm part of a photography Meetup group here in the area--we post stuff online and get together for stuff every month--and our meetup was to shoot architecture downtown, so Lea and I decided to do just that. We had a blast!

Lea working on her skillz

I'm jealous of how cute she looked that day!

We found a great spot for photos!
This was my favorite photo of the day

I think this would be a perfect spot for couples portraits! We tried out a few poses....

We headed to another spot downtown where I got this shot.
The photos with the black borders are the ones I submitted to the Meetup group for comments and critique. Overall I got a good response. I got a few suggestions that would help them out. I, myself, was very happy with the photos. When I look at them, they look like something I'd like and wish I could do...and I did!


  1. Very cool! David and I recently got a Nikon D60 and I just haven't had the time to learn any of the features. It takes great pictures out of the box, but I know it could do so much more. I need to do exactly what you and your friend did and go play around with it...oh to find the time! BTW, that courtyard is where my friend, Laura got's absolutely beautiful!

  2. I think it's a cool photo shoot, too. Watch out when you get a bunch of photographers or designers together... you'll have that many different opinions. Yeah, artists! :-) But it is important to get feedback, learn, and grow, and it looks like you did just that!

  3. Oooh I like those! How fun to take pictures with other people!

  4. Great pictures! I love them! I'm curious if there is a similar photography group in my area. It would be fun to practice and learn with others.

  5. Love the drama of the lighting in the two with the door. Looks like you had a successful shoot. You may be jealous of her looks, but you both have wonderful cameras I'm jealous of. Great talent!
