Welcome to My Picture Blog
I have been considering starting my daily blog for a while now. I have fallen off quiet a bit since stopping at the end of 2012. My skills have definitely continued to grow especially in the sports photography arena but I really want to push myself with macro. While I'm at it, Eyal will push me kicking and screaming into the world of lighting.
We have lots of travel plans for this year so I will have lots of opportunity to shoot some exciting new places. I'll have to brush up on my landscape photography skills for those trips. The girls are getting older now so they are not as interested in being my subjects which will force me to look elsewhere for inspiration.
From an equipment standpoint, thanks to the generosity of my fellow gym moms, I have recently purchased a new editing tablet. That will be a learning experience you can follow. From what I have read, it's tricky at first but once you get the hang of it, you never go back to a mouse. I'm eager to learn.
I have gotten a new tripod and macro rails but really will need a new flash if I want to get really serious into macro. I have a few that I am considering. It will be a point I discuss ad nauseam once I get ready to make that purchase so I hope you are ready for that.
I'm also considering a new 50mm lens. I had one but it was not a G series and after some use, I realized it was not sharp enough so I sold it. You'd think I would have learned my lesson with the Sigma 24-70 debacle but apparently not. My wish list is long so I won't get into everything I want right now but I'm certain I will cover it throughout the year.
So here we go again! I will once again be known as the crazy camera lady. Thank you in advance for your support. I welcome all comments both positive and negative. I need both to grow as a photographer.
