Hi friends.

I just came home from the library on-campus. I’m munching on some popcorn now.

I wanted to tell you about my latest photography endevours. You see, a while ago now I had this idea… more like a dream… of becoming a photographer. A good one.  Maybe even a professional one. I had this dream and it seemed very attainable at first thought. I knew I had a lot to learn, and I knew I would at least try. I put away my point and shoot camera and got my hands on a DSLR (a fancy one). Not until this summer did I begin to learn the basics of photography. Now, I am in full manual mode, there is no going back to automatic. I’m in a photography class that requires this, along with other tough challenges to a photo newbie. Most days in class, I feel like I am way over my head. But sometimes, (on a good day) I feel a little spark inside me, something driving me to have motivation and confidence that I can really create a beautiful image.

I guess I didn’t realize how much of an art photography is.

And how hard it is!

Seriously people, it is not easy.

So I ‘spose I just want to say that I give the photographers out there way more credit. (That means you Jenn Anibal, Bobbi and Mike, Bryan and Mae, Jillian Bowes, Beth Fletcher… all my favorites, duh!)

I am going to share my progress with you. This semester I am dedicating myself to this art. I am still working on that dream, only with the expectation that I will improve over time.

and just for fun… 🙂
