What's new at The Loft - Episode 39

Finding Inspiration at the Quilt Show

The Tampa Bay Scrapbooking Guild held a photo walk at the USF Botanical Gardens on Nov. 6 during the annual Quilt show for the Cypress Creek Quilters Guild.  The walk was led by Professional photographer  Joe Roberts of Roberts Imagery, where he provided valuable instruction and advice on understanding you cameras settings and the circumstances in which to use them.  Not only was the walk fun and informative but the quilts were amazing!!! 

Here are some that I found inspiration in:
