The best part about taking this nature photography course is… quite honestly, sometimes I don’t enjoy taking the class. It’s not the teacher or the assignments, but it’s usually the class overall. Either I have senioritis (haha, don’t we all?) or I’ll schedule 4 models and they’ll all flake on me, one after the other, up until it’s the day before the assignment is due (to be turned in in the morning, mind you!) and then the teacher tells me I’m just making excuses…. *mutters*
Either way… what I’m trying to say is that I absolutely LOVE nature photography. I understand that there’s really not that much work out there to solely base my career on nature photography, but I still love doing it, and there’s always the option to turn to stock photography (check out: GettyImages, Corbis, iStock, etc), which is a great option because it will sell without me having to do anything. Stock isn’t a hands-on sort of money source.
So, this is what I captured in my own backyard. Simple but effective.
The inside of an Echeveria plant (not a cactus!)
Anthophila (Apoidea)… also known as a bee.
In flight. Please excuse the motion blur… it’s hard know exactly where these are headed.
