Don't you just love a great photograph?
I mean, just look at this one!
I love everything about it!
The subjects, the bright colors, the water, the rocks...
I have a point and shoot camera because I just wanted to...well, point and shoot.
The "fancy" cameras just looked too intimidating.
However, I'm ready to take the next step with my photos and I think that means a new camera.
I've been studying our sons' photographs (they both have DSLR cameras) and photos of all the wonderful ones online and I'm overdue for a few photography lessons. (ok, I need a lot of lessons.)
So my youngest son showed me this site.
The above picture is from the site.
There are loads of amazing pictures he's taken.
Each one is crystal clear...I'm just in awe.
Well, today was the day I decided to do something about "my" photos.
I'm taking his (free) online class, with my son's Cannon.
I have to admit it's fun and a bit frustrating.
I don't really know all the correct terminology/functions for all the buttons and switches
but I'm learning.
Here are a few shots I've taken today...
These pictures are a starting point.
There is apparently a lot for me to learn!
Do you have any suggestions as to your favorite camera and lens?
I have just a few weeks before my son (and his camera) head back to school!
