First Post!

Yep, I'm joining the blogging community. About a month ago, I got an itch to become a photographer, or at least to take up photography as a hobby. I've never taken a photography class, and I always used the "auto" setting on my camera; but for some reason, I've gotten the urge to do something different and creative. Who knows, maybe I actually become good at it! I'm starting this blog at the recommendation of my friend Stephanie who has her own baking blog, Confessions of a City Eater. I think she has better photographer skills than me at this point.

Along with my itch came a new obsession for a digital SLR camera, which everyone knows is not cheap. I spent a few weeks reading reviews online, Canon v. Nikkon etc., and "window shopping" for a new camera. With the economy being as bad as it is, I couldn't justify spending $600+ on a beauty like this, 10.1MP Canon EOS Rebel XS:

So at the advice of a post I read on the Digital Photography School blog titled Stop wishing for that Amazing Camera and Appreciate The One You’ve Got, I'm going to suck it up and learn manual mode on my current 6.0MP point-and-shoot camera, Kodak Easy Share Z650:

Now this camera is not bad at all and takes amazing pictures. Hopefully, I can figure out what all these manual settings do so I can get the most out of it.

Well, here it goes. Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck! I can't wait to see what pictures come out of this adventure :)

  2. Forget photography , where's my grandchild ? , how about you take motherhood as a hobby . LOL
