…is the year I finally make time for shooting photos that I am proud of. Working the program, A Year With My Camera, I will post photos here that will probably not impress but be more functional as I walk through the lessons.
“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
— Marc Riboud
There are two types of talent. One is learned and one is natural. I don’t have a natural “eye” for “making” a photo, so this must be a learned skill for me. The good news here is that, in my observation, the person that spends time learning a skill always (eventually) exceeds the natural talent. But this will require dedication and lots of practice.
So bear with me as I try to accomplish the learned type of talent. Believe me, when I get to a level that I am proud of the photo I take, I will be so excited. I so want to capture the grandchildren’s expressions and personalities, and freeze some beautiful moments!

January 3 – picking up my camera again.
Thanks so much for your support! I have to remember to compare me with me a month ago or I will get frustrated. Your photos are absolutely spectacular. You could do travel marketing for northern Michigan!!
Excellent! I work today, so I will do mine and post them tomorrow! I think they need to be in RAW, so I have to figure out how to manage it! I love your pictures!
And apparently I hadn’t ordered my book when I thought I did. I will hopefully get it today or tomorrow!
