Week 6 (February 5th - 11th) | Picture 9

This past weekend I had the awesome opportunity to attend a photography get-together at Longwood Gardens just outside Philadelphia. I have a lot of photography friends who I e-know, but to actually get to meet many of them for a day of picture taking was something I just couldn't pass up.

My super awesome friend Amy rode with me and made the almost 3 hour drive fly by! (If you don't know Amy - aside from being one of the nicest women I've ever met - her blog is fantastic! She proves over and over again that you can talk about very technical photography "stuff" in a really entertaining and witty way. Be sure to check it out here.)

To say that it was fun would be a HUGE understatement. Take a group of fun energetic women who all have the same passion for photography and it was an absolute blast.

I took quite a few pictures I am happy with on Saturday and I might show more later this week if I can find some time. (I have tons of Super Bowl pictures to upload to my private blog since the Packers won the Super Bowl and my husband's entire family is from Wisconsin and bleed green and gold. I want to share all the pictures of our little man decked out in his gear - so that blog will take priority this week.)

For now I will share my favorite picture:

Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: 105mm f/2.8 macro
Aperture: f/3.5
Shutter Speed: 1/200
ISO: 800
Flash: none
Exposure: manual

I also had the opportunity to do a camera swap with Michele (my macro idol) and I'll probably share one of those later in the week as well. That was a lot of fun too! I am already looking forward to getting back together with these ladies again soon!


  1. Gorgeous shot! I can see it blown up big in my kids' bathroom lol.

  2. LOVE that shot...those flowers I *really* wanted to get a good one of & failed. =P It was SO much fun riding in a car yabbering with you...we'll have to do it again!
