I have been taking photographs for a few years now. I really have enjoyed it. More than I thought I would. And now with the Monster, I find I am always shooting!
My hubby bought a Cannon Rebel xTI for his work years ago. I of course stole it. I even took a class two years ago to get familiar with my DLSR. It was a pretty good class, but what I realized and what the professor emphasized is that artistry and creativity cannot be taught. Hard to swallow at first since I don't really consider myself creative, but I knew he was right. Thankfully it didn't sway my stubborn nature. I still get out and challenge myself to shoot what I love. Mostly candid shots of people I love. Those are the easiest subjects.
This weekend a friend of mine asked if I'd be willing to take their family pictures. I jumped at the chance. To really expand my scope sort of speak. It was a really cool experience. It only lasted about 35 minutes as both of us were in a hurry and we had a busy toddler to contend with.
But I must say. They didn't turn out to shabby. I hope I get more opportunities like this.
Here are some from that day!
Thank you B. Family for letting me torture you with my camera!
