Since we’re winding down on National Photograph Month, I thought I’d highlight a few of my favorites from a cruise last year. I love the idea of a month to remind us scrapbookers that our layouts and other projects are only as good as our photographs.
I’ve taken a few in person photography classes and can honestly say that I learned a great deal in each of them. My favorites are the ones that make me say “whoa!” about some aspect of photography or the use of my camera.
I’m really proud of these photos because they tell the story of the beautiful blue waters and skies that we experienced. To highlight all these blues and greens, I decided to try more of a tone on tone layout – using the various shades of the same one of two colors. I am in love with this layout (and how quickly it came together)!

I’d like to challenge you to look for a class – online, in person, self-study or whatever – to enhance your photography skills. It doesn’t matter what kind of camera you have or your skill level. It will be time well spent!
