After being helped with my grandma's picture and welcomed to post, I thought maybe I'd try to be brave and take the plunge and share some pictures to introduce myself and show "where I'm at" photographically speaking. These are some pictures I've taken in the past year or so... it's kind of representative of what I like to shoot but I will say that MOST of this pictures represent the best of my skills -- which means that I have a LOT to learn yet.
To start, these are my kids (Nora, turning 4 in three weeks, and Micah, just turned 2 yesterday):
I really love to TRY to take scenic landscape shots, macro stuff, etc., but I'm just not very good at them. I get so tired of taking my camera out and then coming home and going, "Ugh!" Here's a few, most of these among my better results:
(awful blue fringing and tone to this one -- good example of where I thought I had a great shot and then when "ugh" to colour, composition, everything)
Sorry so picture-heavy, but I figure if I'm going to dive in here and try to learn, I should start off showing where I'm at!
BTW, I use a Canon PowerShot S5.
I sure hope I can learn from you all -- you are simply amazing!!!
