My journey with photography began 3 yrs. ago when my daughter gave me an on-line photo class for my b'day. I was hooked! I am my own worst critic though and even though I get kudos for what I do - I'm still not sure my shots are "good enough". So my goal is to expand my knowledge, learn all I can about taking good shots and perhaps market what I do. I have a husband, a cat, three daugters, two sons-in-law and five grandchildren. My camera is a Nikon D200 with a 24 - 120 mm and a 70 - 300 lens. I also have a Canon XTI and that is the one that I have used in the past. The Nikon is a "new to me" camera. That's why I've enrolled in this class! So I can learn to us it intuitively as I now do the Canon. Our home is in SC in the middle of Sumter National Forest, we said goodbye to the snow and clouds 8 yrs. ago when we retired and moved to the sunny South. Best thing we ever did!
