Imploding Almond Flowers

Posted by Avital Pinnick on February 23, 2011

I needed a break at work, so I took my camera outside and photographed some almond trees lining the parking lot. The first three were regular close-up flower shots. After I got those out of my system, I started doing zoom shots. One tip: zoom shots are not easy to do without a tripod. When I had my old 18-55mm kit lens, they were nearly impossible. The zooming action on my 18-135mm lens is much smoother. So if you’ve tried this in the past and been disappointed with the results, tell yourself: (a) it might be the fault of the lens and (b) digital photography is free. 🙂

Zoomin’ and Twirlin’

Posted by Avital Pinnick on November 28, 2010

A cheap thrill. When one is on crutches and staring at the same rooms day after day, the daily photo becomes even more of a challenge. I was sitting at the computer, photographing things in my living room.
