    • You are so funny! You are and have a dozen people want to learn my secret. which is really no secret. -:) Think natural light. Sometimes the method works, others, not so much. I am merely a newbie in this vast pool of fish, learning things as I go. I merely happened upon this lighting technique purely accidental. There really is no secret but something I have learned by accident to do with my camera. Thanks for your interest and all of your comments. Your feed back is greatly appreciated.

      • it was a genuine question, I only do people and flowers outside, in natural light (mainly cause I don’t have the kit) but really because I want my photography to take me out in to the landscape.

      • I don’t have a kit either, and if I did, I wouldn’t know what to do with it. My husband used on to put our framed artwork on our website; I wouldn’t have a clue as to how that works. Like I said I am a newbie. I didn’t mean to offend you if I did. I simply don’t have a method an am learning as I go by watching my husband and looking at others work and trying different things out with my camera. I simply found it amusing that a seasoned photographer would be asking me how to do something. I only shoot outside in natural light as well. Because I want to be in nature and not manipulate my images. I found this trick that works sometimes on my camera with certain images I can do it, while others I try and it fails. It took me a long time to perfect it. I guess I should be flattered that you inquired. I am grateful that people have been so kind and have have helped me out. I would if I knew what to tell you. I have seen others work, where my husband has stated that they you need a setup with lights an I have no idea what else. Thanks for following me. I do appreciate it. That and the fact I must be doing something right. I hope I didn’t piss you off. I wasn’t my intent. I was merely being honest.

  1. No offence taken, I am an amateur too (with ambitions to go pro – post my present career in about 2/3 years). I was interested in the shadows which looked strong and I wondered if it was studio lighting. There is huge amounts to learn and like you I learn from watching how others go about things (That extends to blogs and marketing too). So I will continue to watch and learn 😉

    • It is indeed a full time job trying to keep up with all of the innovations – the blogs, tweets, facebook, google+ to name but a few and website. It is amazing and overwhelming especially for newbies. I find it a challenge which is good, it keeps my mind fresh. What I don’t like about it, is that I need to write, and I find this fun. So, what do you do? 🙂 Thanks for following and your comments.

    • Your work is amazing! You could easily sell your photographs. I look forward to seeing what you post each day!
