“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”

Quite the quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson, hmm?

Well, 9,804 to go.

I received the most amazing gift for Christmas – a Canon Rebel T3 and a lens that’s way too cool for me. I’m going to take non-iPhone pictures, guys!

I’ve spent the past week reading as much as I can and watching eight gazillion YouTube tutorials.ย Aperture! Shutter speed! Camera shake! ISO! So much to learn.

I need a pet pronto so that the gift-giver doesn’t get sick of being my unwilling (and often unsuspecting) subject.

On my last official day off of work for the holidays, I clomped around in the snow outside for a while and managed to snag some halfway decent shots. Get ready for lots more!

    • Haha, I think we should learn together, otherwise I’ll be teaching you when I’m approximately 100! I just want to learn how to focus the darn thing consistently ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You just made my day! Thank you so much for sharing that. I had no idea that place did classes – I pass it all the time! I already signed up for the digital photography class – are you going?

      • Yes! I am going too. It sounds like a good class. I enjoy their food blogging classes too, they are good for getting tips and networking. It will be fun to meet you in person, I love your blog!

      • Awesome! Can’t wait — the food blogging class is full but I literally just put a weekly reminder to check the Next Door calendar for new openings ๐Ÿ™‚ Look forward to seeing you then!
