My blog has blossomed from simple writings to me sharing with the world my likes, dislikes, loves and passions. I love sharing my creative side with those who enjoy reading my meandering and viewing my photos, whether it be the zoo, a rock band, or local fare. I have a really good following on my blog, my Twitter and Facebook along with several other social media sites. I set many goals for myself such as posting at least once per week on my blog, I go out and shoot at least once per week to get photos up on my Facebook pages and try to post on my other social media at least daily.
I have set a goal for myself and I can only do it if those who read my blog will take a moment and either visit my Facebook pages at www.facebook.com/kdphotocreations and www.facebook.com/photocreationsbydeb2 or simply take a moment and click the LIKE button to the right of this blog post. I would love to reach 1000 likes by my birthday next Monday. Yes, I know it’s a lofty goal, but with all of you clicking the LIKE button (if you haven’t already), sharing my pages with your friends and asking them to LIKE my pages I know I can accomplish it.
I love writing and I LOVE being a photographer and as long as I have an audience I will keep posting and I will keep taking photos. Thank you all and remember…….”LIKE” me for my birthday!
What a fabulous place the Naples Zoological Park is. Such a treasure near the downtown area of Naples. This is my second time since the purchased of my year pass. I really didn’t take a lot of photos this time, because I wanted to enjoy the zoo.
It was such a lovely day and I enjoy being out in the sun and feel the warmth on my face. The primates were really active and so much fun to watch and quite vocal.
I think my favorite area is the giraffes. What unusual animals they are, straight out of the strange and unusual.
I also love the big cats!
I would encourage you to get to your favorite zoo, not only do you support the effort of breeding for endangered species, but you also give support to wonderful research and study of some of our planets great animals. For many people the only place they will see some of these species is at a zoo. Take your camera and visit your local zoo today. I know I will be back. Thank you Naples Zoo for a wonderful day.
There are times when I feel I need some sort of inspiration to keep my creativity up. I love going to the local park and walking through the wonderful fragrance gardens, but I end up getting the same photos over and over; boring! So today I decided to set my camera on monochrome and shoot away. Normally if I want something in black & white I simply turn it in post production. Doing it in camera is a bit tricky and not as easy, because the lighting and contrast have to be almost perfect for it to work. I also worked on angles. Not the hold the camera up and shoot sort of photos, but getting down on my knees, laying on my back in the grass and pulling out some really creative images. When I work this way, it opens my vision to angles and things I normally may not see. My beginnings as a photographer was in black & white, my father whom I’ve mentioned was a black & white photographer and I loved those images and still have many of them today. I want to get back to my photographic roots and take more in that medium. It’s good to work differently, and it’s good to stretch your creative imagination, so go out and enjoy your camera and open up your mind to doing something different.
