Weekend Photography Challenge....

                                                                                  D5000  55mm  f/5.6   ISO 1600

So if you haven't noticed, my jewelry shop is closed...just temporarily!
I am moving, so I am faced with the arduous task of packing up my studio {sigh}. Random beads, chains and papers are this is going to take some time! I have been trying to decide whether I should organize now while packing or organize when I am unpacking. The procrastinator in me has decided: just wait. My shop should be up in the next month or two. In the meantime I have been using the one thing that doesn't have to be packed until the last camera!

My favorite site right now is Digital Photography School. This fun and informative website is a community of photographers of all experience levels who come together to learn, share and grow in photography.
The BEST feature of this site is their Weekend Photography Challenges.
I love having some sort of focus for my pictures over the weekend...even if I don't stick completely to the assignment I always learn something. A past challenge focused on texture...but somehow I ended up taking a TON of flower photos!

Here are a few:
                                                                 D5000  55mm   f/8   ISO 200
                                                                                                  D5000  55mm  f/8   ISO 320
                                                                                           D5000 55mm   f/5.6 ISO  1600

                                                                                                           D5000  55mm  f/8  ISO 400

hey gorgeous! LOVELY photos, I love the depth to them, am gonna check out the site and grab some tips! ;o)

Hope the move goes smoothly, agree that the "organising" should be done once moved - you'll get a different vibe in your new house and inevitably want to "organize" again if you do it before you move!
