Wordless Wednesday: Frost & a Break

by Mary Denman       Twitter: @MaryDenman     Instagram: @MaryFDenman

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday!

I've been a tad un-regular here recently due to my recent surgery and while I'm feeling really well, a couple of health issues around home have found me running to doctors for me and my kids. 
We shall all be fine, but I need a couple of weeks to catch back up and get my photography site up and running, get my logo ready to reveal and do some computer work I've been putting off.....fun, right? 

It'll feel good to get these things done and be back regularly.
I will return the week of January 16th, 2017.

So, before I start doing the behind the scene work, here's a shot of some of the gorgeous frost we had here. 

And follow me on Instagram @MaryFDenman.
I will be over there in my absence here. :) 

Looking forward to a new year and seeing you soon!

Wordless Wednesday: Some Serious Weight Loss

by Mary Denman       Twitter: @MaryDenman     Instagram: @MaryFDenman

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday!

I don't normally get in front of the camera. I have too much fun being behind it! 

But today, I'm celebrating losing 30 pounds! (13kg)

I'm not through with my weight loss yet, but I'm celebrating how far I've come! 

So the picture on the left is me at my heaviest.
The one on the right? 30 pounds lighter!

Monday's Musings: Photography can be a Blessing

by Mary Denman       Twitter: @MaryDenman     Instagram: @MaryFDenman

There’s a reason about why I love photography as much as I do. 

It’s not just the satisfaction of taking a good shot. That would only be for me.

No, the reason I love photographing people, especially those who hate to have their picture taken, is because of the difference it can make for them. 

Photography can be a blessing to others.

Let me tell you how it started.

Wordless Wednesday: Supermoon

by Mary Denman       Twitter: @MaryDenman     Instagram: @MaryFDenman

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday! 

I wish I were a blogger who could get on top of it....I really do. 
I'm so impressed by those who never miss a post! 

But, I'm having surgery today and just didn't get everything done!
So, I will be back on Monday with more photography tips for family shots! 


Here's a shot of the supermoon. 

The haze from the fires made it colored but unfortunately, it also made it impossible to get the surface sharp and in focus. Oh well. It was still fun to shoot! 



Have a great weekend!

Photo Tip Friday: Taking Great Inside Holiday and Family Shots

by Mary Denman       Twitter: @MaryDenman     Instagram: @MaryFDenman


With Thanksgiving and other family holidays headed our way, I want you to learn how to take great family shots inside your home at holiday events.

Taking pictures inside your home can be a challenge.

Why? Because of low lighting. Without lots of natural lighting flooding in, our photos can be dark, grainy or blurry. That's pretty frustrating. 

But there is hope! 

Once you learn a little about your camera ISO works, you can start shooting inside and be happy with the results. 



Let's get started.

by Mary Denman       Twitter: @MaryDenman     Instagram: @MaryFDenman

Have you ever seen great looking memes online and wished you could create them for your blog? 

Well, today, I'm going to teach you a few things about how to create memes using your own photos. 

We'll cover a couple of different aspects about creating memes. 

One part will be about thinking ahead and learning to frame shots for use as memes. Another part will be about cropping shots you already have to create great memes. 

Let's get started.
