It saddens me for what has happen in Paris, France. Words failing but one thing clearly is Prayers for Paris!

Updates about 365 project!

Hello there – Susan here!

I haven’t updated my blog in a while due to how life likes to take the front seat. It’s okay; because it’s helped me regroup on the project. The project itself is on hold til 2016 where I am able to give it more thought, and better time management.

As for other hiccups I’ve had well is loss of images on a memory card and trying to find the right software to recover. I found it and after realizing that my notebook has a generic SD memory card reader I had to go out and purchase a reader in order for the software to read the card itself.

Now that in a nut shell was explained less than three minutes the process it took me was a few days… So needless to say I keep everything I need within reach!

And lastly a update on my certification, I am still working on it! Little progress but not much. I hope to have the exam completed soon! As for my portfolio it’s lacking! So any help would be greatly appreciated!

Now we have stepped into August! Wow, time has flown… Before we know it Winter will be here and 2016 will be upon us! I know don’t rush it! Let’s enjoy the rest of the summer!

Until later!

Day 10 of 365 Photo Project Challenge

Day 10

So far I am on track, just finished my day 10 challenge. I am picking things random that’s around me; random items. Some images will not be apart of the project and that’s okay, I like taking more than one image so I have a few more items to pick from.

Everything so far I have done has been pre-planed because of my schedule. And I think that’s working out well. Nothing else has happen to cause me to stop unlike my Day 6!

I am currently backing up everything I’ve done since Day 6, it’s easier than having to wait by the ending of the month and in that process having another issue happen with loosing something. I rather not go through what I’ve already gone though and spend time that I don’t have to recover loss images. If I can avoid that then we are good!

Anyway this is just a small update like I said I would be doing for everyone. I’ve been thinking about doing a teaser but I decided the best thing to do is wait it out til the ending of the month.

Thanks for stopping by… and please keep checking back for updates and progress on everything… until my next update, ciao!

Day 6 and some hiccups!

It’s Day 6 and so far things were going well until Day 5. I was using my iPad mini and my SD converter wasn’t loading… so after researching online I find out that the ios 8 software on the iPad mini isn’t going to allow the converter to work on the ipad. And so I realized that this is going to be a issue.

Issue turned into a lesson too… which is a good thing.

After finding the software issue, I realized I do not own any Mac computers, otherwise this wouldn’t have been any issue at all. What I had to do was reformat my memory card, then I removed the memory card and spent over 6 hours looking online for software that is free to use which means doesn’t cost me a dime to use and to recover my images for free. I didn’t find one… after getting frusterated with downloading so many software programs I realized that my main computer that’s Win XP… MIGHT which is a big MIGHT have software in the computer because I’ve had to recover images a few years ago. Low and behold I found the software and recovered all of my images from Longwood Gardens, the Sunset I had done back in September and 5 days of my project.

The lesson I have learned is this… back up once you are done with the photoshoot!

Other than that little hiccup, I am still on track with images. I already have a plan for the 7th day of my 365 Photo Project…

I will keep everyone updated like I said… so keep checking back! Thanks in advance for joining me on this journey!

365 Photography Project for 2015!

Happy New Year everyone…

A few days ago I had said I had an announcement for 2015 a plan that I was putting together to show case what I can do and at the same time challenge myself as a photographer.

A few days ago I was at a lost with what to do for 2015, had no idea what to bring to the table for my craft. Actually the only thing I plan on was to take my certifcation and going from there. I thought what else could I do to improve on my skill besides my normal trips to Longwood Gardens… I realized a everyday project could work. So my project is going to take me doing a photo every day, maybe more than one a day but has to be at least one a day.

I was going to include my iphone with taking images with besides my main camera, after asking the professionals what I felt was right I decided it has to solely be with my Nikon, no other camera.

Each day a image will be captured, by the end of the month I will do my best to post the images in the gallery from the month prior. That means in February I will be posting the images I have done in January.

I will be updating you all with my progress through the month seeing if I am actually staying on top of my project or not. So please keep an eye on my website for news and insight on this project.

On a side note before I sat down to type this I already did my first image of the year and first image of the project. I will tell you what it is, the image is of my plan looking like I’m teasing you.

I hope everyone joins me on this project from start that is Jan 1 2015 to Dec 31 2015! I thank you in advance and I hope you will join me…

Have a Happy and Save New Years!
