The World Wide Photo Walk 2009 was a great one! Over 30,000 photographers from around the world joined in on July 18th. I walked in the afternoon in Ybor city, Tampa with Dave Cross. If you go to the photo walk flickr page you can view many many more images from other walk participants. Here are some of my fave images I took during the walk. Oh, and I’m not too sure why there was a rooster in Ybor City, but this one was trying to cross the railroad tracks.

This past week was spent at the Morean Arts Center in St. Pete teaching teens digital photography and photoshop at their summer art camp program. During the week, I talked about how much I like to photograph flowers by using a macro lense. These flowers were photographed at the beautiful Bok Tower Gardens. If you would like to see some pics of me teaching the classes, you can check ‘em out here and here.
The Vinoy, in St. Petersburg, is so beautiful inside and out!! There are so many places to photograph here, not to mention our model like couple. They both were so sweet and relaxed throughout the day even when things went wrong, such as the florist not delivering their flowers. I was fortunate enough to be able to shoot with Paul, owner of Chi Photography, at this wedding. Thanks Paul!! And thanks Jennifer and Jason for the fun day!!
While getting ready, Jennifer had this look of excitement and anticipation the whole time. It was so cute!
What I love about this image is how the bride is looking at the groom. That was a special moment for her.
Not only are the bride and groom having fun during their ceremony, but so is the brides mother and aunt.
Here you can see an example of how Rick taught me a little about perspective.
I also learned how to take an out of focus picture :)
And here is a beautiful landscape. I had to use the bridge to sturdy my camera because I didn’t have a tripod with me, adapt and overcome right!? The blue added a nice night time feel, so I decided to keep the color that way. I also added some texture around the edges.
Rick is a great teacher! Go check out his blog here to learn more about him.
