Oh, Sweet and Fragrant Water Lily…
Celebrating…Having the opportunity to go to Epcot Center for the first time in 20 years!
Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers:
Are you doing these 3 items every time before you take a photo?
These items will greatly reduce camera shake and blurriness on your images.
- Hold your breath.
- Elbows tucked into waist.
- One hand under lens to steady it.NOW YOU ARE READY TO PUSH THE SHUTTER BUTTON…FIRE AWAY!
I hope you have some time this weekend, to go out and implement these quick tips with your camera. You won’t believe the difference…yes, even with a point and shoot.
Are you enjoying these Tips of the Day?
I do, I do, all three of them :), but I don’t think I’d be able to produce a pic like this one. Stunning and so creative!

Love the texture of the photo making it look like a painting…. 😀
Great Photo and advice 🙂 thanks for linking.
I love the deep rich tones in this photo! Thank you for sharing and for linking up with Tones on Tuesday!
great tips, I have never held my camera like that! Thanks
Lovely Laurie. And thanks for the tips!
Such a pretty photo. Love the texture you added.. I do enjoy your tips…
Beautiful shot… and loving the tips too
Yes, I love your tips. I use yoga breathing when I take photos, which is similar to your tip above, and I find it really does help.
I love water lilies – gorgeous editing!
have a wonderful sunday, Laurie…
thx clicking my “high dynamic flower power” post …
Reblogged this on lost creek publishing.
Beautiful picture! Could be a really nice card to write something on it!
As to the tips:
I do all three of them… which leaves me quite breathless sometimes, because I am jumping around, holding my breath, balancing my camera and then taking a picture, then jumping around again and so on and so forth…
Thanks for these kind tips I will use them ! )
It’s as beautiful as an oil painting–and I LOVE those three easy tips! Even I can remember that! 🙂
What an exquisite shot!
Like the “old” look of it
What a gorgeous photo. I love the linen canvas finish.

It makes me want to smell a Water Lily, I don’t think I’ve ever done so. This is really pretty!
Beautiful photo! Great advice.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
What a piece of art!
Monet’s work made me fall in love with water lillies! The love affair continues still today. Your picture is beautiful!
Thank you so much!! This is where my love started with them too. I have been wanting a water pond in my backyard filled with these beauties for years….

Awesome tips, keep ’em coming. Happy weekend!
really great lily, THX for your hints dear Laurie – but my OM-D used 5-axis image stabilisation, but I use 1+3 since I shot decades ago with my 1st OM-10 analog in b/w…
have a nice weekend
The improvements in technology is amazing…but I will still always do these three things☺ Happy weekend to you to!
Another great post and tips too.
I do not think I hold my breathe – may account for some of my blurry pics – especially when I am taking them quickly!
Thats a fun photoshop technique, love that scratchy look
