Photography-My New Love Interest

Pin It Now!

I need another hobby like I need a hole in my head.  As if being a mom of 4 with a traveling hubby, working 2 days a week, 4 therapy sessions a week with my wee one, sewing, blogging, gardening...oh and chef, house cleaner, pediatric doctor weren't enough....I started taking photos.  I have wanted a Digital SLR for the last 2 years.  Once I started blogging, I realized nice pictures always draw me into a Blog, and I expected that would also help pull people in.  Pinterest, was a sure sign I needed a camera that could take better pictures.  I will only pin a sight if it has a pretty picture to pin.  Yes, snobby maybe, but it is a virtual pinboard of all things lovely...and you need a lovely picture.

I asked a couple photog friends where to buy a DSLR that wouldn't break the bank and they pointed me to Adorama and told me to buy used.  I did, and the research began!  I was reading tons of blogs on photography tutorial, researching lenses, researching bags...the list goes on.  My friend Julie Kittredge of Julie Kittredge Photography was teaching a beginner course and I jumped at the opportunity!

I still have a lot to learn, but I'm loving the ride!  I have a Photography Pinboard with links to several tutorials.  Would love to know of any great tips or websites you have found!

These moments just wouldn't be the same with a traditional point and shoot :)
