Experimenting...


Hello guys! I've been busy working with my new camera to say the least! I have been so thankful that things are picking up! I have a few more shoots this weekend and I'm incredibly excited! It's only been a few weeks, but I feel like I've been doing this forever. I absolutely LOVE it! I want to learn everything! I've been testing out trials of photoshop and lightroom is next. (If you guys have some preferences or tips please let me know!) I have been trying everything. I love that I can take some not-so-attractive places (aka our back yard...if you can even call it that) and take a decent photo.

It's been such a blessing that I've been able to start this up with minimal expense. Sure, I don't have the best website, blog or equipment. In this field it's very easy to compare and want better. While I do want to strive for excellence, I want to stay content and true to myself. I have to start out small and that is ok. I am limited in design work and had to do my own website. That's ok. I have to wait for more lenses because I'm broke. That's ok. I've really been learning about contentment lately...and that God provides in many ways. I got a $60 refund check from the Doctor's Office the other day! Crazy!

Anyway, that's about all the updates from me.


PS: I just finished a 50's inspired portrait and have some photos up on my photography blog and facebook page! Let me know what you think!

These photos are beautiful :) I am learning more about photography- and you are right...you can never fully "upgrade" it seems. You are doing a wonderful job though :)

Jen, I'm so proud of you! Contentment is the perfect theme to accompany photography. You are tempted to compare but when you look at the brilliant in the field, you realize they never compared themselves... They captured masterpieces in their contentment.

Have you seen all the free actions you can get for PSE9? I can give you the websites if you want them (just email me). They're great to really make your images THAT much better.
