Into The Woods

As a child, the majority of my time was split between climbing trees in our neighborhood, and getting lost in the woods with my sister. I suppose when you grow up surrounded by soldiers, you tend to become a bit of a tomboy. It comes as no surprise that Little J is following directly in our footsteps, and has taken quite a liking to the woods-- a fact that both thrills and terrifies me.

This weekend I decided to surprise my sister with an impromptu trip to Raven Rock Park. Unfortunately, we arrived just as the heat was reaching it's peak, and neither of us were really dressed for the occasion, so our visit was pretty brief. Still, it was a chance for us all to get out and get a spot of fresh air. It also gave me a chance to test out my birthday present, compliments of Mr. A.



Clearly I have a bit of work to do with my camera. Although I took three levels of photography in high school, back then we were still using regular SLR camera's so shooting on a digital camera is taking a bit of getting used to. However, my sister is a photography wiz so I'm looking forward to learning from her.

Now that I've got a DSLR, I'm sure you guys can expect to see more, hopefully better, photos of me and the fam. I've got plenty photography tips on my Pinterest boards, but I'm hoping some of you guys will throw some tips my way. What are some of your best photography tips? What type of camera do you shoot with?

    1. Ha ha, I appreciate the honesty. There's a lot more that goes into it than most people realize. Still, even if you just point and shoot, you'll walk away with some really clear shots. The beauty of a DSLR is that you can make it as simple or as difficult as you want it to be!
