Photographing on Delmarva

I have been interested in photography since I was in grade school.  My both my Mother and Father are shutter bugs.  My mother gave up photography  several years ago due to some heath issues,  but my father is still out there photographing, underwater as well as on land, and teaching Photoshop.  There are people who come into my store that are interested in Photography from hobbyist to professionals. I have the opportunity to speak to many of them about photography. Some give me wonderful nuggets of information.

Many people ask me where are my favorite places to go shooting? There are so many wonderful spots to take pictures here on Delmarva   If you like wildlife and nature here are just a few of my favorites.

If you like architecture, Delmarva has many historic and quaint little towns, that are great to go photographing in, a few of my favorites are.

  • Lewes Delaware
  • Easton Maryland
  • St. Micheals, Maryland
  • Chestertown, Maryland

Don’t forget that Delmarva  Peninsula is a large peninsula on the East Coast of the United States, occupied by Delaware and a small part of Maryland and Virginia. It’s also close to alot of other great places which are just a couple of hours away such as D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey.

I just found a new blog that many of my photography friends may be interested in… DelMarVa Fhoto Forum and The Perfect Tyme.

Just a few ideas. If we band together, you may be able to car port with each other, and some of the events offer discounted group rates. Go For it! I hope to see you there!

I have been asked many times if I have any of my photographs on-line?  my reply has been no, scared of the right-click thing. I asked a professional photographer one day what he does to get his work to be seen?  He told me about Zenfolio.
