About Me

My photo
I have a great Interest in Photography, I love reading and learning, I enjoy many different ways of expressing my talents in art. I Like culinary food art, carving fruit and vegetables and catering parties. I like drawing and water coloring as well. Other activities I enjoy are dancing, golfing, racquetball and bowling. However, my favorite things to do is travel, eating out and taking pictures along the way. I am a member of the Nevada camera club. It is one of the best ways of learning Photography because you get to learn will doing. I learn so much from the other members, their classes and field trips. What pushes me the most is their competitions. I am currently learning photo shop on my computer, That might take me a few years though.

Photographic Adventure Vegas event at Techatticup, near Nelson, Az.

Last Thursday 2-24-11,   I was able to work with some fun people doing what I really love,  taking pictures, playing with new camera  lens-babies  and meeting new people. On top of that I got to do it with my friend JarieLyn. Over all It was a great day!

JarieLyn and I picked up the lunch and snacks for everyone the night before for about 25 people. We had  to set up the table and help unload stuff from the trucks, not to hard. Than we got to participate in all three of the events.

We arrived around 8:00am and took a little drive to the river at the end of the road a few miles past Nelson, Nv.  The water was so calm it looked like glass and I really like the reflection of the mountains in the water.
The first event of the day was with Lens-babies. Their a lens that change the focus to make the out side of the picture blurry and the inside clear.
The next pictures are taken with the Fish Eye Lens

Now look very closely to this last picture above... do you see what I see? It's pretty strange because I see a   image of someone in the passenger widow. Do you see it now? I swear to you no one was there. It kind of freaks me out to tell you the truth.

 The next thing we did was eat,  it was a good lunch we had sandwiches, chips and cookies after. Than we had a class about lighting and taking pictures of models out side.

A couple of the girls changed clothes can you tell which girls are the same?

The first girl in the cowgirl out fit it the same one leaning on the car and the last girl is the same girl crossing her arms. Pretty big difference.

The next and  last event we did was night shooting.  Lots of fun but it was really cold.
This Lady works at on of the show on the strip with her fire skills. She was very good!
We went out to dinner afterwards around 11:00  needless to say we were pretty tired when we got home. I do have to say it was all very worth it and I would like to do it again. I hope you have enjoyed the pictures and the experience I've shared with you until next time. Have a great day!

Gayla, You really got some professional amazing shots. So proud of you. You are really building up a great portfolio. I loved the mountain shot with the reflection. The lens did some interesting effects that made nice photos. The models were great photographs and the night shots were all interesting. You have grown tremendously into a fantastic photographer. Keep it up!

This definitely was a lot of fun and well worth the time we spent. Your photos are amazing and that one picture of the truck kind of freaks me out too.

Great job, girlfriend!

Gayla, you should be very proud of your work, I am. You have a very good eye and understand the concepts of design in your photography. I see that you have tried wide angle lenses as well as some filters. Keep experimenting with those, you will find where they work well and where they don't. Do not undervalue your talent, your eye, and your sense of design. You can do more than a lens or a filter can, your straight shots are fabulous, don't over do it with too many "gimmicks". There are some very FABULOUS shots in this series. You are now shooting professional work. Way to go! My favorite model shot is the close up of the girl in red, very nice! I wish I could have gone with you on this trip, I would have loved it too.
