Wow... Does That Chick Have Purple Hair???

I think that an introduction is definitely due by this point... I've had this blog for a few years and had a MySpace one before that. My life is changing rapidly now and I'm sure that my blogging style will as well. Please bear with me, I'm not sure where these changes will take me, I'm a little scared, but
excited too...

I hope you all continue to follow me on my journey!

Why Buy Slim Digital Cameras

The world is evolving and so too is the world of digital technology. This includes digital cameras that are always changing and one of those changes is that they are getting smaller and smaller. People are now looking for cameras that are compact and convenient, easy to use and still take a great photo. Slim digital cameras are perfect for the job. Let's take a look at some of the features of slim digital cameras. * Slim Equals Compact Remember when cameras were huge and had to have their own huge bag to carry them around in. They were heavy, bulky and not very practical at all. Old cameras were so big and inconvenient that you just wouldn't take them anywhere unless it was a really special occasion. As a result there are so many other precious moments that were not captured in a photo because people didn't have a camera handy at the time. With slim digital cameras they can easily fit in your handbag or even if your pocket so they are easy and convenient to take with you anywhere. You can keep one in your handbag every time you go out ready to whip out and take a snap shot when a great photo opportunity arises. * Quality in a Small Package You might think that these small packages probably don't have as many features as the older, bulkier cameras. In actual fact they have many features and often more features than older cameras did. Many slim digital cameras have high mega pixels and create high quality photos. Technology is advancing constantly and you can only imagine that new features will be added while the size remains compact and slim. Anyone can have a great digital camera at their disposal that gives both great quality and convenience. * Easy to Share This is one big advantage that digital cameras have that the old film cameras didn't - you can plug them into your computer and upload your photos in just minutes. You can upload your photos to the internet and email them to friends with he click of a mouse. The sharing power of slim digital cameras is amazing giving you an almost instantaneous transfer of photos. With old film cameras you would take your completed film into the photo store to get them printed and often would have to wait a couple of days. With slim digital cameras you can see the photos immediately, have them on your computer within minutes and even send them overseas almost instantly. * Customize Pictures With the old film cameras you got the photos as they were and there wasn't much you could do with them. With digital photos you can add special effects, remove red eyes and even change the coloring of the photo. There is so much that you can do with digital photos both while in the camera and also on your computer. Technology really has come a long way with what slim digital cameras offer. If you want a small, slim digital camera that you can carry with you any time, but still gives you fantastic pictures then slim cameras have all the features that you need. Find a good Southwest Georgia camera shop. You could never regret buying a slim digital camera.

My Favorite Picture EVER!!!

This past Sunday, I had the opportunity to spend some time with this amazing band (pictured above) and listen to them practice and take some portraits for them.
I have to say that this has been one of my favorite jobs I've ever done... Partially because I love their music. Partially because I love these people. And also because I've been playing with doing things that I've never done before. If you haven't already, please check out their pictures on my Facebook page. And when you're there, click through to visit their band!

New Project...

So, if you keep up with me on Facebook, my other blog, or if you have talked to me in person, you'll find out that I am working on a new project today! I've actually been working on it for quite some time, but all the pieces finally came together in the last week for me to get one step closer to completing it today! At least, there should be a photo taken today, and then I will go into the editing process and hopefully there will finally be a finished product next week! And of course next week, I will be taking a different version of the same photo!
I need to say that I am so very thankful to my friends who put up with me when I become obsessed with these projects, but I am even more thankful to the friends who support my insanity and help with these projects!
The photo will be named "The Mistress" and I may post an unedited version of it tomorrow... I'm not sure.

My Favorite Things...

So those of you who know me well already know that photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember... I got my first camera, a little bitty Fuji, when I was only 3 years old and I gave everyone hell keeping film for it and getting all of my beautiful artwork developed. I had that little camera for a number of years until I finally got a 35mm point and shoot for Christmas one year. I was so excited, it had a flash! This kept on for a number of years, getting slightly better cameras as time went by until I finally got an SLR. It was a Canon Rebel, still 35mm, still film... But I had done my research, and I knew where I was headed... I wanted to get into digital!
As much as I loved photography, I decided to do it for a living... I went to school for it, I worked multiple jobs doing it, and even worked for myself in Indiana for a while... It never got old. I never wanted to give it up. I loved every new photo I ever took... Alas, I did take a break from it though. I gave up on the dream. I decided to start looking at the more responsible career choices. And it wasn't until the responsible career choices didn't work and that I had people telling me to give photography a second shot that I picked it back up...
I am now finally to the point of today's blog... The photo... The photo that is posted far above this paragraph. That photo. Yep. That photo is the one that renewed my love for photography. How? I don't really know for sure... It could be the wonderful time I had on that photo shoot. It could be how easy it was for me to want to sit down and edit those pictures. It could be the inspiration I saw in every little moment from that day and the next while photographing and editing those photos. Or it could be the fact that it was so simple, and adding just one detail made it all the more beautiful to me.
Whatever it is about that photo, I am so thankful to have it. That photo not only renewed my love for photography, but for the business as well.

Thanks for reading everyone, I'm off to find some more inspiration in my favorite things... =)

This week's photo shoot is inspired by a game of hide and seek and this sign! =) I am so excited and cannot wait to see how it turns out and to post it on here!
Some changes will be made... This blog used to be my main blog. The one where I posted my feelings, my life, and my innermost thoughts. I will not be doing that anymore. Now, I will instead be using it to focus solely on my photography and nothing else. And if I do start going towards everything else, PLEASE remind me that I do have a blog just for that! =)
Soooo... You may wonder how this picture inspired me to want to do a photo shoot? And what hide and seek had to do with it? Well, I will tell you that. It all started when I saw a friend of mine hanging out with another friend and challenged him to come find me in a mobile game of hide and seek. I photographed different landmarks and texted them to him. Well, after about 30 minutes of this, I happened upon this sign... I used to drive by it everyday. Well, this time it seems different to me... I texted him and said hey, I want to take your picture. Here. Bring your _____. Haha... Yeah, I'm not going to tell you what he's to bring. That would ruin the surprise. ;)
Well, I'll see you all later. Please stop by my Facebook page...

It's October! Halloween is fast approaching... Then Thanksgiving. And oh my goodness, Christmas comes after that... This is my favorite time of year, but it really all seems to be moving too fast this year.
I feel as though I just moved down a few weeks ago, when in reality, I've been back home for months.
