Hello my name is Monica. I'm a wife, mommy, photographer, and a good friend. I’m not a writer, but I will do my best here for Kathy and her Intentional Winning blog because I love her and photography.
If you are thinking that you want to be a photographer then I'm sure you are a lot like me, loving photography while growing up and now thinking I can’t put the camera down! I LOVE it so much I want to do more. Right?
Here are a few tips on how I have made it work for me:
~MOST importantly, make sure you enjoy it while you are doing it - If you are smiling then the world is smiling back at you!
~ When you can afford to make the investment, get a DSLR camera (I like Canon). You can start with the Rebel (it’s okay) and the upgrade lens and bodies as you can budget to add them.
~Take LOTS of photos and then take more…. (For a few reasons )
1. The more you take the better you get
2. You can and will capture REAL life expressions
3. Because you can! It’s digital and you don’t want to miss anything
~Find a Photog support group like (Sac Smug http://sacsmug.smugmug.com/ ) that you can go to bounce ideas off of others and play with people that share the love you have for photography.
So now go grab a camera and take some photos, with your smile on!
