Camera stuff...

Lately I have just been amazed and feel so blessed at how this whole photography thing for me has taken off. When someone sends me an email asking to set up an appointment, I usually just sit back and think "Wow! Really? You want ME to take your pictures?" Especially when it is someone I don't know. I mean, you expect your friends to say it but strangers? It really blows me away. Someone told me the other day that I was way too humble about it and I needed to just grab a hold of it and take off with it! I think secretly (or not so secretly) that if I do something like that I will crash and burn. It's that whole comfort zone thing that I think a lot of people struggle with. I am learning...trying to just go with it. Telling myself, there are no do overs in life so take the talent you were given and go for it. So anyway, enough about that, that wasn't really the direction I was going to go. ;)

People ask me all the time what kind of camera I have. When I tell them, the usual response is, "oh, I am going to go get a camera like yours so I can take pictures like you." Of course I am flattered but I want to sit down and tell them, there is so much more to it than that. Its not just the camera! There are lenses and knowing your camera and how to use it is so important. People buy the DSLR cameras then just keep it on point and shoot. You have to venture into the creative mode.
So really I thought if anyone has any questions about camera stuff, please ask! I really could talk for hours about it, but any specific questions, send me an email or comment. I can put a post together with Q &A's.
Enjoy the beautiful sunny day, I know I will!

I have quite a few questions, I just need to form them in my head coherently.
