I feel so silly for the number of times that I've joined this board, and then stopped posting, and then joined, and then stopped posting again. My reasons for stepping back into the shadows were always something like "Well, I don't know how to CC.." or "My photos aren't nearly up to par."
But I am bound and determined to learn now. I lurk at ILP, too, but I'm staying in the shadows over there... that place scares me.
Anyway, I'm Brandi. I have owned my dinky little XTi for 2 years now, and have had a slooooow process in learning everything, and still have quite a ways to go. I have the nifty fifty lens, a 70-300mm, and the Tamron 28-75 2.8 on the way. (Should be there tomorrow!) I also have an AB800, but am trying to learn to use natural light more often.
I am married to Travis, who's in the Air Force, and I have two (beautiful) little girls, Madelyn, almost 3, and Scarlet, almost 6 months.
So there. I'm diving in again, and hopefully I won't convince myself that I'm not good enough again.
Hmm.... here's a recent shot of my oldest just for fun... Despite her facial expression, she does enjoy being my little model most days.
There, I redid it and did a quick texture on the wall. Is that what you meant, Kelly? Or did you mean something with more color? And thanks for the advice already! I can see already that I will learn so much from you all!
Oh, and also.. I'm not *YET* callibrated, so bear with me!
