Oh Snap is a new series that I have been wanting to start for some time now. I finally have the motivation and the time. I am really excited to share some new things on "Oh Shoot" this month. I will be blogging on a schedule and each day will have its own series. I will do a whole other post on the new blog schedule.
I have decided that I want to learn more about photography and photoshop. I will be blogging all the stuff that I have been learning and share links with you. I will be taking an online photography class, but I am not sure that I can share any of the info that I get from the class here. I will need to check the rules.
I love photography! I have been taking photos since high school. My Uncle gave me my first real 35mm camera when I graduated. Since the 35mm camera, I have upgraded to an SLR camera. My first SLR was a Nikon D40, which I gave to my cousin. I switched to a Canon Rebel xsi and learned that I am a Nikon lover through and through. I am now shooting with a Nikon D200 and I hope to get a Nikon D700. My Dream camera is a Nikon D3.
I have used some nice cameras, but I can't say that I really know how to use them. I normally shoot in auto mode without flash. I never mess with any other settings on my camera because I am so afraid. Afraid of what you ask? I don't really know. I have been holding myself back from becoming a great photographer by sitting in auto mode. I am ready to take the next step in photography.
Another thing that I need to break free from is being shy about setting up photo shoots in public places. The only photo shoots that I am ok with are the ones that I do for Polka Dot Robot. Those shoots are really simple and nothing is really involved, but walking over to are favorite wall and wearing our products.
Basically... I am faking it till I make it.
