5 or 6 years ago I finally went digital. I started with a a pretty simple point and shoot. Then I moved to a Kodak EasyShare Z650 and I started taking pictures of my son's baseball team. The EasyShare was a great little camera. I still use it for video's. I just found that it wasn't fast enough to get the important shots at baseball, and I couldn't do much about the lighting. So last year we moved up another level. I say we, because my husband has been a great encourager all
along the way. He gifted me with a Canon Rebel XTi for Christmas 2007, and then a combined gift for Mother's Day and my birthday (both in May) was a 70 -200mm
f/4L lens. I have been having a ball ever since.
I am such an amateur, but I am loving the journey, and the practice. I guess shooting the baseball games is one of my favorites. I have gotten some great action shots. I am not very good at planning shots and getting them right. I've have been taking a lot of nature shots, now that spring has arrived. I post many of my shots on my flickr page , I'd be curious what you think. I will post some things here as well. The butterfly and bee shot at the top of my blog thrilled me to
no end, when I captured it. And I guess that is why I keep shooting. And then there is this mink ...
He lives at the back of my yard, and he is ever illusive. I want more than his back side, but that's about what I have gotten so far.
All I can do is keep trying.
