Anyone who really knows me, knows that summer is my absolute favorite season. Give me sunshine and heat any day over darkness and cold! There are so many beautiful things to photograph when summer arrives. Some of my favorites are butterflies and flowers. Here are a few of my finds from our local Lost River Cave Butterfly House.
I’m happy to announce my next basic photography workshops for teens. I’m offering two sessions to cover spring breaks for area schools. The first session will be Monday, March 25, and the second session will be Wednesday, April 3. The workshop is the same as my Basic Photography class, but is open only to teens and young adults so that they might be more comfortable learning together with their peers.
Time – 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM on March 25 or April 3. (Drinks and light snacks will be provided.)
Place – Cheree Federico Photography studio in Bowling Green
What – This is a beginner’s workshop designed to get you more comfortable with your camera. You will learn the exposure triangle, composition, white balance, shooting and metering modes, where to find natural light, and all about lenses. You will need to bring your camera and manual and will need to be familiar with your camera. A follow-along workbook for you to take home will be provided.
Cost – $150 due upon registration.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to register. Thanks!

As a member of 4 The Love of Focus, I was thrilled to join their Fine Art Friday group. This is my first time to participate in this type of share as I tend to keep to myself more than I join in groups. How fitting, then, that my first image for FAF is also something a bit different from my normal style of photography. I’m not generally a landscape photographer, nor do I convert many images to black and white. So, I’ve aptly named this image Branching Out. It’s from a creek that is not far from my home and was taken this past fall. I’ve always wanted a photo of the roots, but never really knew what to do until my husband I and went for a walk one morning and I noticed the reflection of them in the creek. I just knew this was what I wanted. I hope you like it as well.
Next up on the stop is Kay Pickens | Fine Art Photography. Be sure to leave a comment on each post as you make the rounds to view the wonderful art from the ladies. They’d love to know you stopped by for a peek.
Ric and I spent Saturday morning at Lost River Cave and Trails with several members of the Sunny Sixteen Photography Club. It was a great morning to be out on the trails taking photographs of the beautiful fall foliage. I was concerned that I wouldn’t find anything new to photograph while we were there, but was once again proved wrong. There is always something new for the eyes to see at Lost River.
This past weekend I went on the Kelby World Wide Photo Walk with a group of fellow photographers here in Bowling Green, KY. This was the first year I had participated in the walk and I really had a great time. I’ll definitely be going on the walk in future years. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day:
Ric and I took a quick trip to Mammoth Cave National Park to see if we could capture some of the beautiful fall colors. We weren’t disappointed. We happened to get there at a perfect time to catch some awesome reflections on Sloan’s Crossing Pond. I’m told the pond is a bit dry right now, but there was definitely enough water there to paint a gorgeous reflection from the trees. Enjoy!
A few rays of sunshine to brighten your day!
I recently spent part of an afternoon hanging out with a friend and fellow photographer at Lost River Cave. Anyone who knows me, will know I have to visit the Butterfly House every time I am there. I am a butterfly fanatic! I only wish there were more varieties to see in the habitat. On this recent afternoon, there was certainly an abundance of butterflies flying around everywhere in the house. A few even landed so I could snap a shot or two!
