Thank you BP and BP'rs!


For a long time now I have been studying, watching, and learning from members of BetterPhoto. You probably had no idea that I was spending hours staring at your photo's and then grabbing my camera and heading out the door to see if I could even get close to the quality of work you produce with every shot. The list is too long to name all of the members I have been learning from. Each of you have a different style that I love and admire. Well today all those hours/days/weeks/months/years I have spent with my camera paid off. I sold alot of prints of one of my photo's and to top it all off....today is my BIRTHDAY!!!! This has been an awesome day and the best part of all was when someone payed me the highest compliment by saying "I can tell by your work you love photography"! It never would have happened if I hadn't found BP and the photographers who are so talented. Thank you all!

  Happy Birthday, Dayna! And a big congratulations on the sale of your prints! That's so exciting! You have a beautiful gallery with such a wide variety of subjects. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there and invite everyone to treat themselves to it! Like you, I have learned so much just hanging around with all the amazing BP talent.

  Happy Birthday, Dayna and Many Happy Returns! You have a beautiful gallery, glad to hear about your success, WTG! Most of us, like you, in our individual capacity have learned from others and tried to become a better photographer, by learning from the inspiring photos and photographers, here at BP and from outside. The learning never stops, certainly not for me. I wish you all the best with your life and photography.

  Happy Birthday, Dayna! Very exciting to read about the print sales, and of course, to have another excuse to go check out your gallery. Beautiful work, from the pretty landscapes to the gorgeous flowers to the handsome still lifes and close-ups. You've got lots to be proud of as you celebrate your birthday, and another fruitful year in photography!

  It's amazing how much is to be learned from every photo shoot. Each one is different, each one presents a unique challenge and I love learning from all of them. I still have a long way to go and much to learn but the most amazing thing I learned from this particular photo shoot is that it shows in your work when you shoot from the heart. If I never sell another print I will be completely ok with that because if I was in it for the money I would have quit years ago! haha! I just truly love everything about photography and I had no idea what an amazing ride I was in for when I joined BP. The photographer's on this website that I have been studying are by far the best there is. My hat is off to all of you.

  Happy birthday, Danya! I remember when you came onto the site several years ago. And it's great you gave credit to BP for your success. Quite frankly, if not for BP being around in 2005, I would not have followed my photography passion and all the good things that have come from it. I truly credit BP for instilling in me the love for photography, along with the great friends I've met through the years from BP.

  I looked for a long time at different photography websites before joining BP and I chose this website for one reason only. The quality of work by the members. Then when I realized how willing people were to answer questions and give their honest opinions it was just amazing. Just when I think I have seen it all one of you will upload a photo that will stop me in my tracks and just flat out take my breath away and out the door I go to learn something new. You all are pretty darned awesome!

  Okay young lady...first, a very Happy Birthday to you! Next, I'd like to take this time to thank you for all of your help, advise and encouragement you have shared with me! Your gallery, IMHO, is one of the finest on this site and I hope when I grow up I'll be one tenth of the photographer you are! You are special Dayna!

  Happy belated birthday! I was told once you sell your work, you are a professional :-) There is nothing like that feeling when you have the power to make somebody smile when looking at something you created! It's even nicer when they love it enough to want to hang it up in their home so they look at it often or give as a gift.
