Welcome to Photo Fridays. Ok, so I know that today is technically Thursday but my official first Photo Friday blog will be posted tomorrow and I wanted to explain the what and why behind what I hope to make a weekly tradition.
As you may be aware, I have taken an increased interest in photography. I want to be able to document our life, both the ordinary and extraordinary moments that make up the fabric of our family so that the boys and one day their children and maybe even grandchildren can look back on these pictures and get an idea of what their childhood looked like.
Last year for Mother’s Day the boys got me a subscription to Clickin Moms, an awesome community of women photographers (both professional and hobbyists) who support, teach and learn from one another. I have spent the last 10 months absorbing as much information as possible and man is there a lot of information. I’ve learned a lot and most of all I learned that I have a whole lot more left to learn.
This blog is a natural place for me to share my progress but I thought I would also take you along on the journey and share some of what I am learning and how I’ve gone about saying no to “Auto” and yes to the big M (manual).
I am by no means an expert but 10 months ago I was overwhelmed about where to start so I’m going to take on a topic each Friday and share with you what I found helpful as I started out. If you are so inclined, grab your DSLR and play along. I’d love to hear your feedback and if these do inspire you to try some new things with your camera I’d love to see your progress.
I’m excited to document and share this new journey with you!
