    DH/SO: Yes
    Children: 2 - Hayden and Kaia
    Location: Southern Australia

    What camera do you have? Do you like it? Canon 60D. I do but I am struggling with some things with it and finding I am limited with other things. DH says I can upgrade but I don't know enough for it to be worth it.... yet

    What editing software do you use? Photoshop CS5

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share? No, but that is one of my goals for this year. I started one and never did anything with it. Now I can't even remember what it was.

    How long have you been interested in Photography? I've always loved taking photos and even did a little photography in school. I only decided I wanted to really learn and grow 2 years ago. I honestly haven't given it as much time or effort as I needed to though, so that is another of the 2013 goals (to really grow as a photographer in skill and sight).

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I prefer candid portraits (to straight portraits), I like bright, light shots as opposed to moody. I love macro and nature, though not so much landscapes. I don't really have my own style yet.

    What/who inspires you? The ladies here, Lisa Holloway, Meg Bitton, Jessica Janae

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? I will have to come back to this

    Anything else you'd like to say? I am going to put much more effort in to my photography this year, so you should see a lot more of me!

    Age: 29
    DH/SO: DH-Heath
    Children: DD-Alaina and DS Aiden (12/29/2010)
    Location: Alabama- Gulf Coast

    What camera do you have? Do you like it? Nikon D5100. I do! I wish I had known a little more about choosing a dslr before I got it though. I might have gone with Cannon instead.

    What editing software do you use? Photoshop CS 5.5 I believe

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share? No blogs. This is the only place I share my pics, except for my personal FB page.

    How long have you been interested in Photography? For nearly as long as I can remember. I've just recently been putting in time and effort into growing though. Once A&A were born, I wanted to be able to capture good pictures of them.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I really enjoy taking portraits-- more of the candid lifestyle kind, though I'm not that great with them just yet. But I also enjoy macro and nature photography. I just choose to use my spare time taking more pictures of my kids instead. I don't feel as though I have a style yet.

    What/who inspires you? Daily inspiration would be my kids. But my inspiration for continuing to work at getting better would be all of you ladies on here. Thank you everyone!

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? This isn't the best "creative" picture by any means. But I love the happiness it shows for both of my babies.

    Anything else you'd like to say? I have really grown since joining this forum and am looking forward to continuing that growth.
    To lurkers: Jump on in. I remember being scared and feeling like my stuff wasn't good enough to be shared, but the CC helped so much- not only for my pics, but with participating in CC for others.

    What camera do you have? Do you like it?
    Canon T2i, I love it so far. I also have a P&S Canon too it broke but Canon fixed it under warranty and quickly so I know their service rocks too.

    What editing software do you use?
    Gimp (Lost my copy of Adobe Photoshop when I moved several years back and haven't really had new software in the budget since then).

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share?
    Not right now, possibly starting one this weekend, will update if/when it happens.

    How long have you been interested in Photography?
    Since I was about 9 or 10 years old.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style?
    I like to take shots that are very natural, people/animals being themselves. Don't really have a style yet.

    What/who inspires you?
    My kids are a great inspiration especially Natalie who is always enthusiastic in everything she does. As for actual photographers, I love the work that Anna Gay does, would love to learn to achieve shots like hers.

    Anna Gay Photography

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share?

    I've shared both of these before.

    I love this one of my DD, probably because it is one of the more successful Portrait shots I've done also was very proud of some of the PP I did on it to make some clothing match (that didn't).


    This one is just a snap that I took of my pup Apollo, I just love how it turned out.


    Anything else you'd like to say?
    I really enjoy participating in this board, you ladies bring wonderful pictures and great advice. I am hoping to put more into a few of my hobbies this year including crochet/knitting, reading and of course photography.

    What camera do you have? Do you like it? Canon Rebel Xs. I am grateful for it because I've wanted a DSLR for years, but over the past year I have become frustrated with its low ISO, and I seem to have problems focusing no matter what I do and how many tutorials I read.

    What editing software do you use? Snapseed on my iPad. I've also tried Filterstorm

    Do you have a photo blog/website or personal blog you'd like to share? I have a blog, but it's more of a writing/devotional type blog. (I am a pastor)

    How long have you been interested in Photography? When I was a little girl I used to play around with my dad's Minolta he got in Singapore during the Vietnam War. I've had my DSLR for a year now, but would study the ins and outs of exposure and such beforehand.

    What kind of photos do you like to take? What is your style? I don't really have a style. I love taking pictures of kids. I would love more pictures of everyday life, but I live so far up north we don't get much natural light for half the year, so it's difficult.

    What/who inspires you? Photography wise? Lots of people. One in particular is a good friend of mine named Tracey Heppner. She is amazing. I remember when she moved to Vancouver and was quickly a part of the elite Vancouver wedding photographer scene. Now she lives in the Philippines and has done some amazing work. Just last year she did a photo essay for Lonely Planet in Turkey.

    Do you have 1 favorite photo and/or self portrait you'd like to share? I'm going to have to add this later... my computer is dying.

    What editing software do you use? Lightroom. My computer honestly couldn't handle another editing software. I'll have to wait until we get a new one, then I'd like to get photoshop.
