What I am currently working on


If this is your first time here, it's really nice to meet you! I will start right off let you in on a little secret. Writing terrifies me? I think I just get afraid of putting my thoughts out there for the world to read. I've read so many blogs that I get a bit intimidated. I never intended to start a blog, furthermore, I am still not sure anyone actually reads it! LOL!

That all being said, I have so much great information running through my head on a day to day basis. I figure this would be the best way to get it out to the world. Most importantly, to YOU! I guess what I want to accomplish with my blog is to provide you with information related to taking pictures, learning about your camera, composition, safety, and anything else related to photography! Hopefully, you will find the information I put up on here useful to you!
