I'm Jennifer. Mom to Rylee Elizabeth. Ever since she was born in July of 08 I've documented pretty much every single day of her life in photos. I have so many I had to get an external hard drive to free up space on my computer. I just can't stand to watch her grow and NOT document every second. I'm a full-time working mom, so my time with her is not what I would love it to be, but such is life.
I've been fairly happy with my point-and-shoot camera for the past year. But, I got a hold of my Dad's DSLR over the weekend and got the bug to take better pictures. Once I looked over here (and with a bit of unknowing motivation from Kelly and Gwen (hey girls )) I've decided I want to learn. I want to make this more than just a documentation of my daughter's life. I want to expand into a full-blown hobby and interest. I've always been drawn to amazing photographs and have filled my home with some beautiful nature photographic art. I figure maybe I can try my hand at it. I know I will not be amazing and maybe not even close to great, but as long as I enjoy it I'll keep on going.
Any who. The best picture I've taken to date is the one in my siggy. It was taken with a Canon Rebel XS (my dads) then edited in Photoscape. Over the weekend I won a bid on ebay for a used (but practically new) Canon Rebel XT. I look forward to learning as much as I can and getting as much feed back and knowledge you ladies are willing to share with me!!
If you got this far, thanks!!
