MM – Camera followup

Last Monday, I wrote about the pending arrival of my new toy. One week later, I feel compelled by my obsession to do a camera followup. I'm happy to report my camera arrived in plenty of time for me to get shots of the full moon, and I'm still ridiculously happy about the whole thing.... Continue Reading →

MM – My new camera

I haven't owned many new cameras in my life. I learned basic photography in high school, using a loaner camera from my dad (which I still have, as evidenced by the pictures in my post from last year, "I heart photography"). Soon after, he gave me my first real camera, a Nikon that I used... Continue Reading →

I had about two weeks to prepare. The themes were easy - birds, my late father (his birthday... Continue Reading →

FF – I heart photography

Today is the first day of National Photography Month (as well as Beltane), so I thought I'd do a bit of show and tell with my cameras. If I recall correctly, the shutterbug didn't truly bite me until I was in high school. I'd played around with taking pictures before, and went through Polaroid film... Continue Reading →
