I'm Almost Professional


So for my birthday I talked my loving husband into getting me the a digital SLR camera, a Canon xti. I am rather thrilled about it. It has been a little frustrating though since my knowledge of photography is about equal with my knowledge of nuclear physics, but I now have a lot of books on photography so hopefully I can figure it out. So far the only difference between my pictures and regular snap shots are that my pictures cost more money to take.

Those pictures are amazing. I love the one of the Rose. It looks really cool. Hope you had a great birthday, sorry I'm like ten days late in saying that, but Happy Birthday!

Arab! Those pictures look awesome!!! You didn't tell me you had any that turned out that good! The one of the rose looks especially nice with all the water droplets on it. Way to go my photographer...you seriously will have to start giving me pointers. You have skills and you didn't even know it - you're amazing!

Almost? You're a full-blown professional. Those are about 10x better than anything I could do! Well done.

So...it's been about 10 days since you posted these pics. Are you still playing with your new toy or, having achieved perfection, have moved on to bigger and better things?


p.s. are you going to post some new pics anytime soon?

Those pictures are great - looks like you know what you're doing, I'm jealous. I also just bought a really nice camera, but always end up using my point and shoot b/c the new camera is just too complex! I'm starting a class this week, so maybe in a few months a can take something almost as good as that beautiful flower shot of yours.

Sarah, it's great to hear from you! I don't regularly check my blog, so sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Congrats on your wedding (as belated as this is), living in San Diego (that's one my ultimate life goals), and being pretty brilliant at photography. Seriously, those pics are amazing!
Heather and I are living in DC, liking it but missing the west coast too. Anyway, this is getting long, but stay in touch.
