Well here i go with my first post. :) I am a stay at home mom, and photography student. I LOVE photography..LOVE it. I started out last year , getting seriously into it, by tooling around in my garden. I discovered i had a knack for macro (extreme close up) and played around with photographing my flowers. (I also love gardening..flowers the most.) My camera was just a point and shoot Canon Powershot, but it did a nice job.
(I recommend trying it out once for yourself. On your basic point and shoot camera, you turn your dial to the flower symbol. Turn off your flash, or your images will be all blown out and white. Get down on your subjects level and frame your photo slighly off center to make the most interesting image and let your camera focus sharply on the spot you want to stand out most..then snap your photo. Practice, practice and practice somemore, and you'll find you'll get some great photos!)
Now that i am in school @ AAU online, i have a Digital SLR camera, and a few lenses as well as a big flash that i am learning to use in manual mode. Man has it been a lot of fun!! I have never had this much fun learning. It definatly doesn't feel like school. :D
Soo, anyway, the whole point of my blog is to give out some daily tips to help my followers improve their photography. My biggest point of advice for today, is PRACTICE. Play around with the camera you have try new and different things, and don't be afraid! You can always delete the bad ones and try again. Good luck!
