So last Christmas Santa brought me the best gift ever.

Then this week for my birthday by husband got me the part that will change my life.

I've had this dream to get into photography for a little while. Its an expensive investment, so slow and steady. Now I'm saving for classes and a nice lens.

Now, I've learned about my camera, taught myself about Exposure, Aperture, ISO, yada yada, but you still need time and experience. But I was an idot and offered to take my cousins engagement pictures to help on cost. Little did I know that she would take me up on it and I found myself taking their pictures a week later. Luckily we now live close to a cousin who gave me a crash course in Photoshop the day before! I actually am very pleased with the results and have no probably telling everyone that I am proud of myself!

Looks awesome!! Take my picture and make me look like Catherine Zeta-Jones! Ok, I know. Just thought I'd try :)

Also, I think your last entry was a typo. Didn't you mean "better than incest" cake??

A great inexpensive starter lens is the 50 mm 1.8 (or 1.4 if you want to pay the extra little bit to get a wider ap). Also you should check out -- an AMAZING free resource for portrait photographers, both beginning and professional.
It's fun, I'm excited to see you getting into it! said...

I love it! What a cute picture...and I can't wait for you to learn everything about you can teach me! Or, better yet, just follow my family around everywhere we go and take pictures (and edit them all) for me! I'll even pay you room and board!
