Noble Creatures – the Bald Eagles of Reelfoot Lake

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

A couple of weekends ago we went with two other couples to a B&B and went to Reelfoot Lake to see if we could see some bald eagles. I had my 80-200 zoom and had considered renting a 200-500 zoom from the rental company around the corner. The folks at the ranger station said I’d need at least a 40x scope to see them up close (which translates into 2000+ mm), so I did not rent the lens, but I now wish I had. While we were driving around we saw these eagles in the trees right beside the road. They really are magnificent creatures, because there was a wounded one back at the ranger station that I could see up close. I think I want to go back with the proper camera gear to get more up-close-and-personal.

Pointer Family Video – Memphis Photography by Dreamweaver Artists

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Get the Flash Player to see this content.

As part of a purchasing session at Dreamweaver Artists, we create a slideshow of the images from each session. We like to be able to show all your images in this way before you begin choosing which you want to purchase. This first showing of your images is one where you can just sit back and enjoy them all.

This slideshow is one from a recent session we did with the Pointer family. To be honest, they could NOT take a bad photo – they’re a great looking family, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with all of them, finding some images of the boys that they liked as well. It was really not our intention to take individual shots of the boys, but we got a little carried away (in case you’re wondering, we leave enough time in scheduling our sessions, so that if we or you want to try something different that we didn’t think of beforehand, we have the time to do so). This flexibility and the ability to get excited about each of our sessions and do something “different” is what we consciously attempt to do with every client.

We hope you enjoy watching.
