My Photo Blog Journey

Welcome to my journey into photography..... I've been in the art & design field for many years, and I'm excited about taking those design skills in a new direction. I think great photos really do tell a story.....and that adds a whole new dimension that makes photography intriguing to explore. I hope to use my love for design to create with a camera.

In July 2011, I traded my point and shoot camera for my first DSLR, a Canon EOS Rebel T3 and have been trying to learn as much as I can about photography every since. What an awesome journey it has been. For Christmas my wonderful husband bought me a second camera (Canon EOS 60D) which has more features than my first one.....of course more to learn. And our two daughters bought me a 50mm 1.8 lens. I love it...more to explore...never enough time.

Observing other photo blogs has helped me to expand my knowledge in the field .....I feel like I'm getting to know people all over the world because of a common interest... photography. I can't wait to see where this adventure leads.

2012-2013 Update:  Since I last wrote about my Photo Journey I have taken my photography in a different direction. I have added a couple lenses to my kit, a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS EF II USM LENS, a Canon 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 EFS USM IS LENS, and a Canon 100mm f/2.8 EF USM MACRO LENS.

In 2012 I joined a local Photographers Guild. It has been a great way to expand my knowledge and make some great friends who share my passion. Being around and learning from others who love photography is the perfect way to grow as an artist.

In 2015, I upgraded to Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera.

In 2018, I purchased a FUJIFILM X-T2 Mirrorless Digital Camera. I love the lighter weight. I still use my Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera, but for traveling I love the weight of the Fujifilm. 

Thanks for stopping by...
