This past weekend here on Andros was breath taking. There wasn't a cloud in the sky, nor a single ripple in the ocean. I simply had to get out of the house and enjoy the day at the beach. I'm not one to just lay out and tan, sp I decided to scout for seashells to pass some time. I constantly need shells for my crafting, so I can never have too many.

I managed to bring home a good amount of treasures in excellent condition. I soak each of my shells in hot water and scrub off any sand, scum, and algea that might be growing on the shell. I don't care to bleach my shells since it fades their natural colors.

While I had them outside to dry, I decided to pull out my camera to take a few pictures of them.

The first photograph I took is called a Lightning Whelk. For the background, I went with a darker shade of neutral wood to help the bright white shell stand out more.

This second photograph here is glass I found on the beach. The glass hasn't quite reached the 'seaglass' stage yet, but it has been on the beach long enough for the edges not to be sharp. I went with a wood background again, but this time a lighter wood so the darker glass doesn't blend in too much.

The last photograph I am featuring today is made from several different shades of sea urchin, and a piece of wood. I set everything on a mirror this time for a more interesting effect. I plan to experiment  more with mirrored photography in the near future.

Photographing My Life

December of 2010, my husband and I decided we would invest in a nice camera for a mutual Christmas present. After some research, we decided on the Canon Rebel 2ti. We love it! We have been able to capture amazing moments from our daughter's childhood, and that is absolutely priceless.

Since then, I have read articles and books about photography. It has become sort of a new hobby of mine. Friends and family really enjoyed my work, and encouraged me to start selling prints. I was a bit hesitant at first, especially since I am no professional. I have sold 1 print so far, and hope to sell plenty more in the near future.

Most of my photographs are taken here on Andros Island, Bahamas. The island and it's contents are picture perfect! Picture blue skies, sandy white beaches, swaying palm trees, tropical flowers, and you have Andros! It truely is amazing what this island provides for us. I would like to share with you some of what I have taken:
