Marcy's Photo Journey

This week's work has been finding and photographing barns in east Tennessee and northern Georgia. Due to the positive response and inquiries from a post earlier in the week, I'm reminding everyone these images are available for purchase, double matted, and ready for an 11 X 14 frame. The mats are gray with a maroon under mat. Please let me know if you are interested!This week's work has been finding and photographing barns in east Tennessee and northern Georgia.

Fully recovered now from the arts/crafts fair last week-end and back at work ponderously going over more pictures from Africa. Just a reminder that I'm posting new pictures every day to marcysphotography.com and would love to have you visit often! I'm really hoping to get back with my local shooting in the Smokies and Cades Cove but must confess I'm dreading the summer crowds and bear jams. I'm missing "my mountains," though, so I hope to have some new perspectives of the places I love best very soon. ... See MoreSee Less

Technically, it's not the best photo, but I love this shot taken high above the beach on Chapman's Peak. A lone horse and rider have the entire expansive beach to themselves and show up as a small dot on the sands below. (Click on it to see the picture only, and the rider is a little more visible.) ...

Now that the festival is behind us, it's back to going over the pictures from the Africa trip. This is another aerial shot from our helicopter adventure in Zimbabwe and shows the enormity of Victoria Falls. The bridge in the middle right connects the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe with the river and the falls being right between the two countries. You can also understand why it was so difficult to get pictures when we were walking along the falls due to the heavy mist. ... See MoreSee Less

Still hard to believe we were really there. So much more beautiful than standing there and only getting a glimpse of that separation. Thank you for your gift of great photography...more, more

So we actually did it! Home now, unloaded, put away, exhausted, but feeling good about the week-end and our first ever venture into the world of art fairs and festivals. It was a successful week-end in so many ways, and I feel happy and amazed that we really did pull it off. Thank you to all who gave such encouragement, both online and in person. (Thank you, Jill, John, and Zachary for driving all the way from Kentucky to come and support us.) I've never had much confidence in my new role as a photographer, but this week-end really gave me some needed validation. It's my tendency to have unreasonably high expectations at times, but according to others who have gone down this road, we did very well with our sales and our income over the two days. And guess what? I'm starting to feel like a real photographer!! ... See MoreSee Less

I have an easy favorite. The lions!!!! The giraffes are second. Both animals fascinate me. But lions are just amazing.

They are so beautiful!

I came to Africa to take photographs like this one. A high point of our last day was seeing a herd of elephants cross the Chobe River. Our guide explained that the group included a one week old calf, and in order to keep the little guy safe from nearby crocodiles, he was positioned toward the front between a huge male, who led the parade, and his mother. Often during the crossing, we'd see this tiny trunk come up like a periscope for air, and we be reassured that he was still there. What a thrill! ... See MoreSee Less

There's so much to catch up on from the past two days that I'm not even sure where to begin. Doug and I had arrived two days early to get a jump on jet lag recovery before our official tour started because we knew once things ramped up with the itinerary, it'd be pretty much non stop for a while. On Friday we did an extensive tour of the Cape by bus covering a lot of countryside and breathtaking scenery. Highlights were the penguins on Boulders Beach, the Cape of Good Hope, and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Yesterday we had a city tour of Cape Town after not being about to tour Table Mountain as was originally planned due to gale force winds. Afternoon golden hour found Doug and me out at Sea Point trying to capture some of the seascapes and waves and then it was on to the waterfront for a little night photography. I'm going to post several pictures (probably way too many), in order to catch up a bit.

Today was one of the best days we've ever had on any trip. Our friend, Pieter, whom we met on the plane, gave us a grand tour of the cape, and the scenery was phenomenal. Although it was a very hazy day, the views went on forever, so hundreds of pictures await processing. The highlight of the day, however, was not the beauty or the photography. It was spending the day with a new friend, a gentle soul and wonderful conversationalist, who was so kind to take his entire day hosting two strangers from half way around the world. We shared our stories with one another, laughed a lot, and realized anew that we should always take advantage of opportunities to listen and learn from others. ... See MoreSee Less

Amen to all of that, dear! 💕

Beautiful photography! So glad you are having such a wonderful time.

What a great adventure! And for you to say it was one of the best days on any trip is quite a compliment to your new friend (since you’ve traveled quite a lot).

How nice to make such a generous new friend.

From Doug
I originally composed a very long post about our "Digital Darkroom" explaining in great detail how we produce our images. I thought better of it. But I did want to share some of what our products look like.

On the top is a close up to show detail on our paper canvas. We've been very happy with the results. - Images printed on this product have a nice "painterly" look. Our metallic prints have given us some super results as well, but it is hard to capture the real look of metallic with a "picture of a picture".

On the bottom is a closeup of how we mat our images. We started with a few single mats, but weren't satisfied with the look, so we invested in a high quality double mat product line. Images are double matted in nice color combinations chosen by Marcy with a decorative "V' Groove and quality backer board. We mount the image to the mat with a free-hanging technique to prevent buckling using linen hinge tape coupled with 3M Advanced Tape Glider adhesive.

Lately, Marcy has been busy finishing production on our biggest images, a nice 11x19 in a 16x24 mat and I have been occupied with building our festival display (tent, browse boxes, display racks, etc.).

So please put June 1st or 2nd on your calendar to attend the Lenoir City, Tennessee Arts and Crafts Festival to see our work. Would you believe that we close to 900 double matted and wood prints!

Something a little different for today's photo...taken in our back yard on a perfect summer day last year. I chose this picture because the purpose of this post is to let everyone know what has been going on at our house since mid January. We started the year a little discouraged about the whole photo business journey because despite our best efforts, online sales are only averaging a little over one picture per month...not any where near what we had hoped when we launched the website on September 30th. So we tried a different approach and offered matted prints directly out of our home, shipped to customers double matted and ready to frame. Although there was a lot of positive feedback on that venture, it has not proven to be any more successful than the other online option through Fine Art America. We're going to take it one step further now, and I'm very excited to announce that we will be hosting a photography booth at the Lenoir City Arts and Crafts Fair the first week-end in June. We will have almost 1,000 images in five different sizes for customers to browse through as they visit. Much work has been done to prepare a great variety of products and organize into categories including landscape, wildlife, birds, southern charm, home decor, and travel. This is our make it or break it week-end, and we're giving it all we've got. Please put the dates on your calendar (June 1-2) and plan to come by and see us! We could also use your help in getting the word out to others...booth #132, a great location right in the middle of the action! ... See MoreSee Less

So I'm standing in my kitchen about 5:00 yesterday afternoon preparing chicken to grill for dinner, and I look out the window to see the most fabulous golden light in front of a dark, troubled sky. Forgot about dinner (and the fact that it was very cold, had no coat, and I was in my slippers), grabbed my camera, and ran out the door yelling to Doug, who was in the yard, that I was chasing the light and looking for something to shoot. I had in mind to go to a bank of daffodils about a mile from my house and get some flower shots because the temps were dropping so drastically that I knew daffodils would be gone by the next day. However, I got about a quarter of a mile from home and saw these longhorns in a pasture in the absolute perfect light. Hurriedly found a place to pull off the narrow road and park to take a few shots. It is then that I realize I'm in my slippers, it's very muddy, and I have to climb up a steep bank to get a good vantage point. I managed. The adults were a distance away, but the adorable little guy was near me and started over to fence where I was standing. I'm thinking that this is wonderful; I'm going to get some close ups of this sweet little newborn calf. Before I knew what was happening, I heard a bunch of commotion and see the mama longhorn kicking up her heels, stomping, and blowing, and rapidly headed my way. Caught by surprise, I didn't have my shutter speed set high to get the action shots, and I was afraid to take time to change it because I was getting scared that she might actually plow through the fence and charge me. Anyway, I did get some shots, stayed alive and unhurt, and now plan to return and be ready next time for some longhorn action and good angry cow shots. Had no idea we had new neighbors. Aren't they beautiful?So I'm standing in my kitchen about 5:00 yesterday afternoon preparing chicken to grill for dinner, and I look out the window to see the most fabulous golden light in front of a dark, troubled sky.

Things are starting to happen here at Marcy’s Photo Journey as we head to the UPS office today to ship a matted 16x20 image and continue to build our inventory. Pictured below, our model Madelyn has one of our “mini-landscapes”. This format features panoramic images in a finished size of 11x14 inches. We have one like this hanging as an accent piece in our own home.
The mini-landscapes are all double matted, finished with a decorative V-groove, and packaged in clear show-bags. This particular image is on canvas paper and has a blue outer mat and a gray inner mat. You can have “It is Well With My Soul” or any of our other mini-landscapes for $32.00. We will be creating galleries of images available in each size. Many are ready to go, already printed and matted, but if you place an order you have a customization option. This means you can choose your paper (canvas, luster, pearl or metallic). In addition, you may add a custom scripture or favorite saying as seen in the example for an additional $5.00.

Our model Madelyn is holding the 8x10 version (finished size) of a fan favorite entitled “Frosty Bugle Breath,” taken in the National Park at Oconaluftee, North Carolina. Our Frosty won third place in a wildlife contest featuring 597 images, so we're quite proud of him! The golden early light and the steam that rose from the bugling elk gave us an image that we felt fortunate to capture.

We have a variety of images in 8x10 format of various subjects but focused mainly on wildlife of the Smokies...bears, songbirds, coyotes, elk, deer, owls, eagles, raccoons, etc. They are all double matted, finished with a decorative V-groove, and sealed in clear show-bags. This particular image is on metallic paper and has a cappuccino color outer mat and a heritage tan inner mat.

You can have Frosty Bugle Breath for $18.00 If you would like more information on other sizes and subjects please message us.

Since there has been so little activity on our page lately, you may have thought we lost interest in our little photography business, but that is far from the case.

As you may know, Marcy and I have over 1,800 images hosted online with a site called Fine Art America. We upload the images and provide descriptions, then Fine Art America does everything else from shopping cart checkout to printing matting, framing and shipping. We receive a commission for use of the image.

Fine Art America does have great products with a money-back guarantee and we recommend that you take a look and compare them to what you would have to pay for a framed image.

But for most of us, it is no small investment to get a matted and framed print. So last month we began researching how we might bring you a high-quality product for less. For sales, we decided to target art fairs and festivals where people could see our product directly. We realize selling art online is difficult, especially considering shipping.

After much research and testing, we have settled on offering six image sizes, with beautiful v-grooved, double mats with using metallic, canvas, luster and other quality papers paired to match the type of image. We will not do framing, but all of our images fit standard size frames.

Over the course of the last month, we have produced over 100 images like the 18x24 you see below featuring our model, Madelyn.

We have created these finished sizes:
• 8x10 (A good place to feature our birds and wildlife)
• 10x13 (Wildlife closeups)
• 11x14 (mini-landscapes in metallic and art canvas )
• 16x20 (Featured landscape prints)
• 18x24 (Large landscape prints)

From Doug -
I wish to declare another of Marcy's superpowers! - She has a real eye for color and decorating. Our host site makes it easy to see how an image looks with mat and frame choices and I just spent some time practicing. There are tens of thousands of combinations to mat and frame a print, including choice of paper finishes and sheens. I realized that I am way out of my league; I can't get the combinations right. If you feel the same, don't hesitate to contact Marcy through this page for consultation. She would be glad to help!

I've always loved this church, St. Mark's Anglican, located in Kensington, Prince Edward Island, and I've taken many, many pictures of it over the years. As a featured Thanksgiving 2018 image, I've chosen to pair it with Psalms 100:4, a familiar verse of scripture that reminds us to give thanks and praise to God for his blessings in our lives. Happy Thanksgiving!

Some things will be discounted at 50%, and include many gift options that are offered at all price levels from stocking stuffers to quality art work for your home.

As a featured Thanksgiving 2018 image, Ive chosen to pair it with Psalms 100:4, a familiar verse of scripture that reminds us to give thanks and praise to God for his blessings in our lives.  Happy Thanksgiving!

I love foggy mornings in the mountains. The mystery it holds is enticing. Picture perfect picture!

From Doug -
We enjoyed getting out and shooting fog pictures today, and Marcy posted some here already. I figured that I would showcase the master at work. Taken from Dixon Road just a mile from our house.

After being on the road from 6:00 am until 9:45 pm yesterday, we were tired this morning and had no plans whatsoever to get out and shoot today. But then Doug happened to look outside and report that there was heavy fog and frost, a good combination for some pics of the last few days of Autumn color. All of these were taken within 3-4 miles of our house as the fog burned off, and the light was just about perfect! ... See MoreSee Less

Beautiful shots! The Mallard was my favorite "catch"!

These were all beautiful

You are talented and using that talent to bless me with every picture. Thank you

Wow! You capture beautiful seconds and make them last forever. Thank you for doing that for us. That is the very thing I always wish for when something beautiful captures my attention.

You are so talented. These are amazing.

Beautiful

Love these!

Doug and I are in Florida this week while he attends a conference for work. I've been spending quite a bit of time out exploring and have twice visited the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Here in Florida, the birds are big and white! I've discovered that it's not that easy to photograph a pure white bird in the midday sun, but I've enjoyed watching them. What a change to go from Tennessee fall to such a completely different setting...Doug and I are in Florida this week while he attends a conference for work.

Mingus Mill was as pretty as I've ever seen it yesterday morning. Any combination of these fall images would make a wonderful grouping to brighten up a spot in your home where a little color is needed!

We had hopes of getting nice fall sunrise images for our photo sales galleries so we braved the high winds and downed branches on US 441 to the overlook past Newfound Gap. -- And they did close the road soon after we can through. Out of the 250 or so shots we have between us, there is probably nothing that might showcase well. With a storm front approaching from the west we did have a spectacular view in person. Stay tuned, hope springs eternal ... ... See MoreSee Less

For the past 10 years or so, we have enjoyed a fall weekend trip to the Smokies. We delayed our trip this year by a week hoping we might have better color and we were rewarded. Nevertheless, we had to reckon with high-wind road closures and rain. That was all good, the rain made for some interesting scenes, and we will be posting images here soon. The ones below were taken in the Cataloochee Valley. ... See MoreSee Less

Psalm 50:2 "Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined."

We are still combing through our archives to choose the best pictures for our galleries. I noticed that the batch this evening showed a count of over 77,000 shots and there are several other batches. We have long said that someday we would figure how to showcase our photography, and that time has arrived. The image below may not be the best technically by any stretch, but it is one of my all-time favorites. The beauty of Zion National Park during the Monsoon Season was incredible, and the colors were just this vivid. The Lord was very near to us that day. -- Posted by Doug

Years ago when we first visited Zion National Park there were flash-flood warnings out. That was a little scary since we were unfamiliar w/the area.

The Heavens and Earth testify of His glory. Absolutely gorgeous
