Test Post

Does this image look sharper than the one below? I've been playing in Lightroom and learned how to export properly with the correct sizing and sharpening settings.

Friday Fun!

We've had some wet weather lately so today after it quit raining we unleashed crazy girl to play in the puddles in front of our house. She had quite a fun time. Question for bloggers, does anyone know how to link/upload larger images than what blogger will allow?

Inspiration = YOU

Greetings all! I'm back again but this time around I will be documenting my experiments with photography and maybe some video editing here and there. My true passion is to photograph wild animals in their natural habitats, but with a busy 2 year old running loose and another on the way, I'm afraid my passion will have to be a serendipitous journey. Until then, I'll attempt to stick to capturing captive animals including my toddler.

I started out by seeing other mom's photos online that were spectacular, crisp and looked like a professional had done them. I thought to myself, "I can do that", so I started stalking them to see how it was done. I learned so much in the world of DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) cameras, different lenses, composition, even tried dabbling a bit in photo editing programs such as Lightroom.

I purchased my first DSLR camera - a Nikon D3000. I shot with it (and the kit lens) for a while until I knew which lens I wanted to invest in next. I opted for the telephoto lens (18-55mm) which would allow to me zoom in close to wildlife from a far distance. I've learned how each lens is dynamic, and which situations to use each lens for optimal results.

This will be a never-ending journey of learning, practicing, experimenting and hopefully capturing a few breath-taking images, as seen through me & my little viewfinder.
