Mommas Get Toys, Too!

Well, back in December I posted that I was thinking of starting a small photography business. Nothing major -- just big enough to make a little money, focusing on pics of military families seperated by deployments.

I finally saved up enough money to buy my camera -- a Cannon 40D -- and I LOVE IT! I'm still learning how to use all the settings and attachments. Let's just say I have a lot to learn before I start charging. For now, I'm working on learning about my camera and building my portfolio. I'll post a link to my photo site once I get it up and going (Thanks, Kerry, for all the great advice on getting this thing started!).

Here are some photos I've doctored from my first afternoon with my toy (300 photos that day and over 1000 on Friday-- still have to review all those):

Yay! Looks like you're off to a great start! I can't wait to see more!

If you haven't bought Photoshop yet, email me. I paid half retail for mine, which is good because it's another necessity. It never ends..but it's fun!
