When I started this blog, one of my main hobbies was stalking.
Yep. Truth. I was basically stalking other blogs to see how they did things…drooling mostly and having complete blog envy… But one thing that I noticed consistently during my stalking phase was that all the good blogs had good photography.
Now obviously, this isn’t a new idea. Having good photos has been important for a long time, and not just on the internet. But it made me realize that photography was an area I struggled with. My phone took better pictures than my point-and-shoot…and not to mention the fact that I don’t have a ton of natural light in my house. Using a sub-par camera in insufficient lighting…not pretty. [REALLY not pretty for an “over-analyzer”]
After months of frustration, I finally broke down and got a nice camera.
Ok. Now what?
I quickly learned that having a nice camera was only half of the battle. Learning how to use it…well, that’s another story.
So! I’ve been practicing. Lucky for me I have lots of friends and family with cute kids to use as subjects. But, while I really enjoy using my camera, I would never call myself a photographer. I’m a total amateur, but I am a little proud of how my photography has developed, so I thought I’d share it with you. Here’s are snippets of some of the sessions I’ve done.
Thank goodness for cute babies!
