Everyday Life: Summer Fun & Memories

by Tammy Strobel on August 11, 2012

{Photography helps me see the world differently and enables me to be less sad about my dad’s death. Since I’ve been taking so many photos, I decided to begin a new series on the blog called  “Everyday Life.” The series showcase’s images from my everyday life. In addition, the series fits in perfectly with The August Break. Enjoy!}

Goodies in the mail: The best party invitation ever. Logan’s grandparents are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary in September. Plus, a thank you note from my friend Vic, along with a little Yogi tea.

It’s been two months, and one day, since my dad died. I miss his smile . . .

Everyday Life Photography Tip

– Try shooting a few portraits this weekend, at sunrise or sunset. This time of day creates a beautiful golden glow around the person you are photographing.

FAQ

I’ve received two commonly asked questions about my photos. Below are the questions and my responses. If you have more inquiries, feel free to leave a comment.

1. What kind of camera do you use? I have two cameras; a Nikon D5000 and my iPhone camera. I bought my Nikon D5000 about four years ago and it rocks. I take pictures with both everyday. I have a kit lens that came with the D5000 but I prefer taking pictures with my 50mm lens. The Olloclip, for the iPhone, is a really cool tool too!

2. What’s your photo taking process? For more on that topic, read this post.

Beautiful photos Tammy, the view from your home looks very serene and inspiring. Great photo of Logan, he looks like he is having a ‘eureka’ moment! Also love the photos of your Dad – what a great smile indeed! :) Tis good to keep so dear such memories, and remember him with happiness. Congratulations to your Grandparents – that is the longest marriage I have ever heard of! My Grandparents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary a few year before they passed away, and it is just such a beautiful thing to celebrate love for that long. Katie. xxx
