I have a love/hate relationship with photography. I am totally inspired when I am able to capture a moment well (like finally getting some decent photos of DD#4!). The problem is that I am terribly picky and my photography skills don't live up to my "well" standard--lol (I'm working on relaxing on this a bit though). I have been dabbling with photography for about 6 years now. I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT and use Photoshop PSE 4.0 (yeah, I know a little archaic) to develop my photos. I love that I feel free to experiment more since going digital, but I find I rarely print my photos. A few years ago when I was still shooting film, my local developing place knew me by sight and would be waiting at the counter ready to hand off my photos to me.
Since moving and adding a couple more kids to the family, I put my photography on the back burner. I still took pictures, but I kind of stopped learning and challenging myself. Now I feel like I'm ready to jump back in and try to get my photography to the next level. I have no desire to go pro or anything like that, but I would like my great SOC (straight out of camera) ratio to be higher than it is (umm like I have to take a bunch of photos to get that really good one). Now that I'm ready to learn, I have found a great class by Katrina Kennedy over at Get It Scrapped! Her class is called: Captured Through the Lens and it starts on June 9. I'm looking forward to taking this class and know that I'm going to learn a thing or two. Let me know if you join and I'll keep an eye out for you.
