I'm a wife, mother of two, and an avid reader and scrapbooker. I've always liked taking pictures, and occasionally I'd even get lucky and get a decent shot. When I turned 50 last year, I splurged and bought myself a digital SLR camera to celebrate. I'm starting to take the photography thing more seriously, so I guess I'm now a budding photographer as well.
I enjoyed Elisha's "Take Better Pictures with Any Camera" last fall. I began to look at my camera--and photography in general--in a whole new light. And I found that I really I enjoyed sharing my photos with others. There's something so very rewarding about having others appreciate your work.
I've been amazed and inspired by the photos posted in the gallery. I'm currently taking "Mastering Manual" and "Picture Inspiration", and look forward to lots more inspiration in the weeks ahead.
