1st Entry

Lately I been contemplating buying a new camera and getting more serious about photography. Always having a love photography, I decide to go for it and purchase an entry level digital DSLR. I reviewed many cameras online and checked them out at many local retailers, finally made my choice. I chose the Canon EOS Rebel XS/1000D, which was closer to my budget and had all the features I need. Another reason why I made this purchase is wanting to pursue a new career, photography. Currently being unemployed I have had plenty of time to look for a new job, not finding anything that paid enough or even interested me. I thought to my self, why go work for someone else, why can't I start my own business and have financial independence. Many people talk about doing what they love and the money will come to you because you are passionate about that one thing. I think I found my love! The first day my Canon DSLR came in the mail, I was so excited & couldn't wait to go test it. I'm still learning to use all the wonderful functions of my camera, as well as the art of photography. I will blog about my adventures in photography, as well as post samples of pictures. I welcome any comments, suggestions, or tips to help me become a great photographer.

  1. I'm getting ready to buy a new camera myself. I've been picking the brain of my neighbor and wedding photographer on what cameras do best in what settings. I shoot a lot of low light stuff so that is my biggest challenge. Low light that looks good printed instead of all grainy.
    There is a college near me that does a certification program where you learn photography skills AND more importantly photoshop skills. I've never used photoshop myself so that will be the best part of the program. My secret dream is to focus on photographing plus size brides and grooms. Just 'cause we are fluff doesn't mean we don't rate kickass photographs too!
