There's No Place Like Home (To Take Photos)



While photographers often venture out in search of new places to take photos, sometimes inspiration awaits you at home.  Here are some photos I've taken at home (and I use the term "at home" a little bit loosely - it could be my home, my dorm room when I was in college, or a friend or family member's home).

New Southern California Landmarks and Filming Locations Map



After completing my Saratoga Photography Map, I decided to make another map with all the Southern California landmarks and filming locations I've visited.  This map is by no means comprehensive (how could it be?), but it's certainly worth a look if you like seeing where movies and tv shows are filmed, or if you're planning to visit SoCal and would like to see some of these places yourself.  Here's a little preview of what you'll find in the map:

Brace Yourself-ie: Conventional & Unconventional Self-Portraits



Selfies, while they've existed pretty much since the dawn of photography (see the world's first selfie here), have in the twenty-first century become a hallmark of our culture, for better or worse.  As a photographer, I have always enjoyed finding ways to take selfies that have some sort of artistic merit. My definition of selfie is a photo in which the photographer appears.  A few of these photos really challenge the idea of a selfie, but I do appear in all of them.

Presenting: Saratoga Photography Map by Samantha Decker



Recently, I've been working on a Google Map geotagging my photography around Saratoga.  On this map I've pinned food, nature, architecture, and entertainment.  While Google Street View can give you a feel for an area, it is often distorted, and Street View can't go everywhere.  Use this map if you're looking to get acquainted with Saratoga, find places to photograph, find places to eat, or just explore some photography.

A Day at Disneyland



The final chapter of my recent Southern California trip was a day at Disneyland Park.  Disneyland is the land that Walt built, and the only Disney Park that he saw completed.
