Mmmm.....Photoshop CS5?????

Check out this video of what could be a great tool featured in the next version of Adobe Photoshop. This will make cleaning up an image so much easier!!

New to blogging.......not photography


I'm new to the blogosphere, so please bear with me as I get the hang of it. I've been considering blogging for awhile and with a wedding on the way, my fiance and I have actually started a wedding website/blog. However, since one of my assignments for Social Media Marketing was to create one, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to dive right in.

I plan on using this blog as a way to document my experiences with the wonderful world of photography. Two years ago, I received my first digital camera just prior to visiting New York City. While I was there, I took roughly 400 pictures and fell in love with the camera. As I reviewed the images from my Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W80, I realized that I had an eye for more than the standard touristy snapshot. I did some brief editing in Adobe Photoshop CS3 and had a set of them printed. From there I began shooting every chance I got. I shot in numerous places, including the city I currently reside, Troy, OH. I soon began seeing the world through a viewfinder.

In 2009, I joined the Edison Photo Society, a local photo club operated out of Edison Community College. By doing so, I've created new friendships and listened to a number of seasoned photographers that have been helping me on the way. I entered my first contest later that spring and by the end of the year I had won numerous ribbons in 4 of the 5 contests I entered that year.

I just recently purchased a Canon AE-1P film camera and a Canon EOS 50D Digital SLR camera. I just had my first outing with the digital at Historic Loveland Castle and it was quite the experience. I realize that I need a great deal of practice and I have a lot to learn. I'm up for the challenge and I'm looking forward to documenting it along the way. I'm going to be using this blog as a way to share my work and tips, review places I shoot, and pass along interesting things I find or read. I look forward to the journey and everyone who is interested in hearing what I have to say.
