Branching Out: Photography

I'm not qualified to do this.
I don't even have a fancy camera...yet. ;) (September's my Birthday MONTH!!! hint, hint...wink, wink, wink)

But I love to take photographs.  LOTS of the THEM.
And just recently, I have been playing around in the editing department.

I want to learn more about how photography works...and even though, I'd love to start this journey with a brand NEW DSLR camera.  I fear I am "stuck" with my Point and Shoot for the time being.

It's a good camera.  I know it has a LOT more capabilities than I even know.  I want to learn.
I'd like to "use what I got" so to speak.

Perhaps when the time comes, I will be ready to play with a NEW DSLR and know a little more about what I'm doing.

I thought about starting a NEW blog.  Strictly for photography.  I even had a really catchy name picked out and everything....started designing it....
Then I realized: I DON'T HAVE TIME for another blog!
Silly me.

So, I will post my pictures here.  I'm going to participate in a few weekly photo challenges because, frankly, I have no idea where to start....maybe I'll lose interest.  Who knows? 

I hope you don't mind.

I know some of you are already AMAZING Photographers, so I look forward to learning from you.  (TIPS and TRICKS welcome!)


  1. I take "okay" pictures. But my friend...she has a SERIOUS camera and lens and even took a class on it. She did my avatar picture and usually does my Christmas cards too. That is one thing I want to learn how to do.

  2. Hey there! Here are some great sites to check out: (This one you have to pay to join)

    Hope these help to make your skills better!!

  3. I currently have a canon PowerShot SX20 IS which is the closest I will get to a DSLR until I can afford one. I love it! BY the way.. September is my birthday month too! Wierd!

  4. Have fun!! and play around with your lighting, angles, and props!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

  5. you should go to ramblings and photos:

    she hosts a weekly photo scavenger hunt you can link to and I think it's super fun. Plus, she lists tons and tons of weekly challenges that she participates in so you can find lots of stuff to do.

    Have fun!

  6. Can't wait to see your pictures!
