I have been taking pictures with an interest since Sept. 2003. I had gotten side tracked from it for a while. In July of 2007 I got my first DSLR and I haven't put it down since;) I use only natural light and I am a Canon girl. Here lately I have been stepping out of my "norm" which is children. I have picked up a new interest in photography flowers. Pets is something new to me too. I'm still hoping one day I'll get more than just an Editors' pick medallion under some of my pics:) I won't stop until I do.
