Although we’re halfway through the summer, the sunny days that we dream about most of the year is still here! Let’s celebrate by getting outside and memorializing them. And the activities don’t need to be planned, like day trips or graduations, even the most mundane activities like washing the car or clearing the yard can be the greatest backdrop for fun and memorable shots. Our phones and cameras are crammed with un-shareable photos of headless family members and bad lighting, so it’s time to pay some attention to quality not quantity and create shots that you will be proud to post now and look back on later.

Everyone has enjoyed stunning time-lapse flower photography, but rarely think it is something they can do. With proper equipment, step-by-step instructions, and a little patience, you can accomplish a beautiful time-lapse photography video with flowers in your own yard. A series of sequential images captured by your camera over several hours are compressed into a short video lasting only a few minutes, allowing you to see a flower bud mature into a full bloom.

A Path Through a Forest Blanketed With Trilliums

For about three weeks in early Spring, great swathes of elegant White Trilliums carpet the floors of forests, before trees’ leaves fully develop and block out the sunlight. It’s a great opportunity to get out and photograph the abundance of wildflowers that can’t be seen at any other time of year.

Snow

A fresh blanket of snow covering trees, fences, fields, hills, and buildings presents a beautiful array of Currier and Ives style image opportunities and invites the photographer to capture its beauty while the snow is fresh and clean. Winter sports are another favorite theme of winter photography. Securing the proper exposure that will preserve the beautiful and varied tones of the snow’s strong reflections and extreme contrasts is a challenge in both the serene winter scene and the exciting snowmobile race. What can you do to capture an image with your camera that is as beautiful as the one captured in your eye?
