About a year ago, my professor changed universities and this week we had all the lab members who stayed behind out to visit. It was incredibly busy and kind of stressful because we had to do ALL of the things while they were here, but it was also a lot of fun and very productive! It was fun to see people and great to bounce ideas of each other. In addition to catching up on everyone else’s research, we also spent some time doing fun things like hiking (while unofficially brainstorming) which gave me a lot of great photo opportunities this week. The above pictures are taken at Treman Park and Grisamore Farms, where we went cherry picking.

This week I read a really great photography book (review to come next week) and while it had tons of useful advice, what I got out of it the most was that I need to do more thinking before I take pictures. I often feel rushed when I’m shooting, sometimes because I’m with other people who are waiting but often simply because of the other things I feel I should be doing. That’s definitely not a good way to get pictures. To combat that tendency, in the future I want to try to set aside time explicitly for long photography sessions focusing on one scene. Since I’m lucky enough to live somewhere with many beautiful waterfalls, I think one of my starting places will be visiting a lot of them. This week I made it out to the Ludlowville falls, which you see above. The random fire picture of from the local Fire and Ice festival. My boyfriend has been experimenting with long exposure photography and was nice enough to help me take that one.
