Amber Fern

 Summer is time for you to enjoy yourself with not very many things to worry about. It is a time for you to explore. I explored more things in photography. I met a photographer in Montana this Summer named Amber Fern. She is the owner and lead photographer for Fern Photography. She is a fun and enjoyable person. She puts her own special twist in photography I take that amazing. She is fantastic at her job and takes outstanding pictures. I love her work! Look at this picture its so unique. Which makes it 10x more love-able!

Photography to Me!

Photography and me is like shoes to feet. They go perfectly with each like they are made for each other. I use photography to let my imagination out. It shows the creativity in me. I do it in my free time and sometimes as jobs. I don't use big fancy cameras. I either use my little camera or my Ipod. I think photography is a creative way of life. I get so happy when I see a great picture. Like the one on the right of the page.

Club Click has a New Member from New Hampshire

Hi...I am Luc. I am a second grader in Portsmouth NH at Dondero School. My dad is Steve Gagnon and both my parents are teachers. I love science. I love baseball, skiing, and woodcarving. I also love to play golf.

And what I enjoy about photography is that it is a type of technology. You can use it in a bunch of different ways. When I'm taking a shot. It feels like I'm diving into my next adventure. Each picture is like its own adventure. I like taking pictures of mountains when we're camping. I actually like taking pictures of anything. I don't have my own camera, but I hope to get one by next year. I am using our family camera now.

Thank you Mrs. Miller for making me a part of this club. I can't wait to take pictures when I'm hiking, skiing, and other times for you all to see.

MacKenzie Teaches Us All About Flickr and Picnik

I am a new member to Flickr. If you are not filmilar with Flickr it is a photo sharing website. My friends also got Flickr accounts. Now we have an easy way to share our pictures and edit them for other people to see. You can edit your pictures right in your Flickr. It can be helpful, even though I like editing but I only do it with certain pictures when I think of it as a different way.

The photo editing tool I use is Picnik. I use a premium account but you can still do a lot with the free account. You can get Picnik on Flickr. How you do this is you click on the photo you want and then go to actions, then sort of by the bottom then click edit in Picnik. It takes a while but once you get the hang of it you will love it. I use it a lot, for many uses. It comes in handy for school, and personal use. You can add captions, pictures, make it black and white and more. I think you will get addicted to it like me.

Flickr, is very fun. You can add sets, which are groups of pictures, like photo albums. You go to the top and click organize and create, and then there will be little tabs and click sets. Then there will be a little words under it, it will say create a new set. Click on that. Then on the bottom you will see all your pictures, any that you want click and then drag them. Then you have a set.

Club Click has been a fun experience. I think we could get more people to join it would be fun. We have our Club Click Flickr Group, and I think that it would be fun if everyone in Club Click got permission to get one, and then everyone could share their pictures with our group.

One of the best parts of Club Club is Skyping with Diane, who lives in New York. She is a very good photographer. I think that we all want to be able to take photographs like her.

We want anyone who loves taking pictures to join.
