Photography. I read blogs about photography, tutorials on using dslr cameras, and photoshop lessons. The only problem? I don't have a dslr camera or Photoshop. What's even more disturbing about this obsession is that I have been perfectly content with my point and shoot camera for the last few years, but now that I'm figuring out what I can't do with it, it no longer seems adequate.
Which is sad. Discontentment. Not fun.
And since money doesn't grow on trees (trust me, I've looked for those ever-elusive trees), I can't go around acting like it does. Dslr's are expensive. And Photoshop? Yep, it's expensive too.
So for now, until you all start contributing to my camera fund (ha! Just kidding), I'm learning to work with what I have.
I'm using a combination of Picasa and Pixlr, which are both free photo editing programs. While there are drawbacks (like the 20 minutes I just spent editing a photo in Pixlr just to have it disappear), I am able to spruce up my pictures just a bit.
While they may not look like the Pioneer Woman's awesome photos, I'll keep working on mine and shoot the cutest pictures possible of my little guy with my P&S, which isn't hard since he's so dang handsome (totally takes after his dad).
