Dirt Roads

If you are looking for inspiration the best thing to do is step away from the norm. Even something as simple as taking a different way home from work can change everything. Every once in awhile when I am in need of a shot of inspiration I will randomly turn down a road I have never been on… Usually it’s a dirt road…

  1. Great photos. I love that you make beautiful photos out of something that some people might take for granted seeing everyday. I’m a newbie at photography but, I have been trying to take decent photos for awhile. If you could check out my photos and give some feedback that would be great. Keep up the fantastic job!!

    • Thank you :). It’s really about perspective. Sometimes you don’t notice beauty in something till you look for it. I will gladly check out your blog. What kind of gear are you using?

      • I have noticed that too. I’ve used everything from a i-phone to a Canon EOS 450D. I think my biggest problem is that I am not aware of how to adjust the different settings while I am taking photos. Usually I either set it to auto or I fool around with it and hope for the best. Then I process the photos after to try and help them look good. I know some of the photos on that page aren’t the greatest but there are a few that I’m proud of.

      • I totally understand where you are coming from. Learning to operate a camera is very tricky. But the more you can do in camera the better and easier your post production (editing) will be. My best advice is to learn, learn, learn. I have been doing photography for a long time and I still have so much more to understand. But I have learned to love learning :).

        Your camera (Canon 450D) has the capabilities of producing great images. You will be more so limited by your lens and lack of knowledge on how to use your camera. It’s vital to learn what your ISO, aperture and shutter speed are and how they effect each other. That might be your best starting point. While “fooling around” is good, if you are not learning in the process you will get no reward.

        I too feel the same about my photos “some are good, some are not”, honestly that may never go away, but at the same time that’s what drives me to want to continually get better.

        Starting out is the toughest part. Sure it’s easy to just put it in auto, but where’s the fun in that? Your camera has built-in semi-automatic settings such as P, AV, and TV. Learning those will help a great deal in the beginning stages…. I’m beginning to think I should have just turned this into a blog! Ha :). Hope this helps!

      • Haha I would so love to read a blog from you about all of the different settings and manipulative you can change to turn an ok photo into an amazing photo because you better understand your camera. I do mess with the settings while I am out but I guess I don’t always see the differences between what it was at first and what I change it too. I should probably do more research on the different settings and how they effect the outcome. I’m going to be in Europe for 2 years and a hobby will definitely help the boredom. I guess that’s going to be the perfect time for me to start figuring out all the different aspects of my camera.
        Thanks for the information I really appreciate you taking the time to talk to me like this.

      • I think I can make that blog happen :). I’m currently working on a Vlog about what gear I use and to show that you don’t need professional equipment to creative amazing images so keep an eye out for that sometime this weekend. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»
