Hi all and happy saturday! Today I’m happy to report that I did a lot of the things I wanted to do to work on improving my photography. I did a bit of reading in a book called The Essential Guide to Bird Photography.

This week I’m still getting caught up on editing some of my pictures from Christmas break. Visiting my boyfriend’s brother and sister-in-law, I had a lot of fun taking pictures of geese and ducks from their apartment. We also tried to get some squirrel pictures, but they were just too speedy! I’m still loving shooting RAW – the lighting adjustments you can make are just incredible. I hope everyone else is preparing for an exciting weekend and that you’re enjoying your Friday!
This week’s pictures are from my trip to Dallas for a conference. I chose to go to a conference that was a broad overview of the field of bioinformatics and as I, and the rest of the students who went, discovered what this really meant was two and a half days of talks most of which weren’t directly related to what we were doing. That’s a lot of talks to sit through when they’re not topics relevant to you! And while there are some legendary conferences where half the point is for professors to have fun traveling and get drunk after the conference, this was not one of those conferences. So these pictures are from what ended up being my favorite part of the trip – a visit to an art museum and a statuary garden with my roommate, who was wonderfully patient while I took forever taking pictures of ducks 🙂
