I Lied… (Photography Wednesday)

by SomeGirl on August 30, 2011 · 9 comments

Well, I told you I was going to take a break from Photography Wednesdays, but I lied. (You’ll forgive me, won’t you? It wasn’t intentional.) ;)

You see… my sweet husband surprised me with a new camera for my birthday last weekend!!! And now I’ve got TONS more to learn and pass on (whether or not I have time). However, instead of spending time putting together posts of what I’m learning with photo examples, I may have to just pass along great articles I’m reading or tips I’ve found from other sites. I’ll share personal examples when time allows.

Btw, if you’re curious, it is a Canon Rebel T3i that he gave me! I’ve been wanting one since they came out and had no idea he’d gotten it! (What a sweet guy!)


Although, to my surprise *wink*, having a nicer camera doesn’t make me a better photographer… and that stinks. ;) So… I’m off to study and learn. I really want to get better at this thing. I do so enjoy it! And I hope to help you get better at it, too!

Anyway, here are some things I’ve found that really caught my eye and I’m hoping to learn from..
