We Took 249 Photos Today.

© Furorco ( Help)
I went out of town today with my girlfriend and came back with 249 high res. photos! At the end of the day I ended up touching up and uploading 47 of them. Cant wait to see what gets accepted. It was a exciting trip!

The photo in this post is a Red-Winged Blackbird. This was one of my very first practice photos. Boy I learned a lot from my first photos.

I spend a lot of time making the images look just right. Rotating them to the perfect angle, clearing any noise and so on. Im really getting into this exciting hobby. Then at the time of upload I shoot to have no less then 50-100 tags.

Im so excited getting started. I only have had nine photos accepted before now and learned a lot of from those first uploads and do so much more work to each photo before uploading them.

I love learning and reading every ones comments and blog posts. Here's to photography and earning with MicroStock. Im looking forwarded to making friends on here and checking out each others new photos on a daily basis and inspiring each other!

Thank you for the encouragement Angela.

Gmargittai, great point about that getting in trouble part. First off, my girl is such a great sport. She's the kindest most understanding woman I've ever been with. But she certainly doesn't have a problem shrieking out.. noo you are not shooting that! Especially if we are going to get a bite or do something and I see something out the window and say.. hey look at that. Lol! Happened this morning on the way to breakfast. I immediately said.. it might look good but the first thing we are going to do is go have a great breakfast. Hehe!

The day we went on the massive photo shoot, I had told her all the stuff I was excited to shoot and how nice it would be in the park. We got some good fast food and kept the ac in the car on because it was about 90 outside. First thing I shot was this guy on a giant heavy duty machine in the parking lot we pulled into to eat our Taco Johns. I was so nervous with him looking I accidentally did a video and he started...

Hey, I am sure you had a lot of fun taking those 249 pictures. One question: What did your girlfriend do while you were so busy with your camera?

When I do this I am always getting in trouble :)

Hey, thank you Digitalreflections. That's cool that you are local. Im in the Eau Claire area, so we are neighbors. I like your photos. I think that deceased man with the toe tag was a creative photo shoot and one that could be done with creativity. The black and white really makes it feel real to. Keep up the great work and thank you for your comment. It's great to meet you.
