Your yard is filled with MANY amazing and surprising photo opportunities. Just recently, I was surprised by a herd of deer moving through my yard. I live in a suburban area, with enough development that I found their presence surprising. But I got my camera, put on the right lens, and rushed out. I placed myself right in their path and waited. I snapped pictures until a loud truck scared them off. I could have missed the deer had I not been paying attention. I’m glad I was because I got a few amazing moments with some very relaxed deer and some great pictures!

Sorry that I haven’t posted lately, but I’ve had photographer’s block for a while. :-( It seems that many of us suffer from this at one point or another, but here is a great article at LensRentals.com on how to break photographers block. And here are a few other tips to solve this disease.
- Use the old trick of confining yourself to a 10×10 foot square for an hour.
- Choose a project and try to make 50, 100, or more (set a goal) good photos of the subject you choose. For example, you could choose lighthouses, elk, spiders, etc. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on your project.
- Some photographers start a “photo-a-day-for-a-year” blog. You can get started at Blogger.com
Anyway, have fun shooting!
