I am still learning!

Wow! I have been away some time from this blog. I joined the 365/2010 flickr group and posted one photo each day. Then I completed the once a week photograph group on Flickr in 2011. I found that it was better to do one a day as it kept me more focused so after the once a week group in 2011 I returned to the once a day group for 2012. I am now just about half way through the 2013/365 group.  I learn so much from this group. Others share ideas, tips, and let you know how you are doing with your pictures. It’s a warm, supportive group and I have made many friends. I would recommend these groups on Flickr to anyone who wants to improve their photography.

So while I have been away from this blog I have not been away from photography. I love it! I have learned so much and still have much more to learn. That’s what I love about the photography, the learning! So I will try to share some of that learning. When I first started with switching from being just a point and click girl to one who could hopefully do well with a more sophisticated camera. I did a lot of research and decided that for a beginner like me the T1i would make a good starting point. I had no idea what I was getting into and was very overwhelmed at first. I am going to try to share some of my learning with you. The hardest part for me in the beginning was having so many things to learn. So I dived in and read a bunch, retained very little from the reading, and finally concluded that I just needed to get out there and shoot, try to take small bites of learning at a time, and just not worry too much about how little I knew but focus on the joy of learning. Now I feel ready to go back and revisit some of the learning. I have indeed taken lots of pictures, learned a lot, had fun, and developed a passion for photography in the process. I took this picture back in the beginning of this journey:

I took a picture of this plaque back in 2010 when I was just beginning to learn how to do more than just point and click a camera. I wasn’t happy with the shot but said I would keep trying. I finally got around to the trying and I think I achieved a much better shot.

Here is the shot I made today:

So yes, I am still learning!

    Came across your blog looking for tips and tricks. I have a Canon Rebel T1i. Would love if you’d post some more tips and tricks. Seems like I’m not getting the best use of my camera with all the different settings and such I could be using. I just don’t know where to start.

    I am planning to post more. I can totally identify with the feeling of not knowing where to start. I hope my posts will be helpful for you.
