New Beginnings

Welcome, Internet!

I want to take the time to describe what Icicles in the Viewfinder is all about. This will most likely shift to a different page in the future, but for now…here’s the deal:

What this blog is

  • The product of a New Year’s resolution

    After Christmas this year, I spent an amazing 11 days (should have been 12 – thank you freezing rain) in sunny Australia. I ended up coming home with a decent amount of photos, but they were mostly last-minute “Oh, I guess I should get a picture of <insert landmark here>”. I’m hoping that by learning more about photography, thought process changes.

  • Accountability for said New Year’s resolution

    No explanation needed (unless you actually keep all of your resolutions, in which case good on’ya)

  • A space to consolidate resources for fledgling shutterbugs

    I am very much a point-and-shoot kind of operator. This blog will become my personal library of resources for the basics of photography (for now!) and I hope that it helps others along the way.

  • A space for veterans to revisit the basics

    Or share your experiences with the next generation. This community is for all those with an interest in photography, with a focus on beginners. All are welcome!

The plan

Education:

Resources and information, as well the theme for the Shot of the Week (SOTW).

Inspiration:

Photos that either match Monday’s topic or that week’s theme (you can also find inspiration anytime on my pinterest page!).

SOTW:

Shots that I’ve taken that week, featuring my favourite (which will also match the theme set on Monday).

So there you have it.

I look forward to sharing this adventure with you. Follow me on Pinterest and Instagram… and subscribe to receive e-mail updates of my latest posts.

Happy shooting!
