Hello blogging world!

I have just recently gotten into photography….

Since getting my first camera when I was quite young, I have enjoyed taking photos.  I’ve always been amazed by the power of the camera and the images that some people are able to capture.

For years now (since my first daughter was born in 2010), I have had a decent DSLR camera – Nikon D3100.  Its been on my ‘to do list’ now for almost 5 years to learn how to use this thing, and to see if moving away from ‘automatic mode’ could make a dramatic difference in my pictures.

I just started to learn the fundamentals – albeit slowly, when my busy life permits – and have been working in the manual world for about a month now.  Just over 2 years ago, I moved to Calgary and I can’t imagine a better city to be able to take photos!

I know almost nothing about the blogging world, but am looking for a place to post photos and perhaps share ‘recipes’ with those I can learn from.

So here it begins, with some old lenses from my dad, a Nikon D3100, and a beautiful city surrounding me…

  1. Welcome! And good for you for creating a blog and improving your camera skills. Most people talk about doing something new but not everyone puts effort into taking action.


  2. Thanks BB. I have spent so many years focused on career and kids – found it tough to get into a hobby and stick with it. Feels good to take action! My kids are liking seeing all the pics too! How long have you been doing photography? How long been blogging?
