I am writing to you from the great frozen nort. Well, not THE nort, but close to it. My family and I live in one of the most beautiful part of the United States (yes, I am a tad biased). There are many photographic opportunities to be had here. Up until now I had only been able to dream about capturing my subjects, and expressing myself through photograph. However today I broke down and bought my first DSLR, honestly it was either a new camera, or a horse. My husband let me have the camera. So, I got a Cannon EOS Rebel XS w/ standard lens. However when I got home I found a much better deal on just about the same camera, with an additional lens. So, needless to say I'll be switching soon. So, here I am. Eager to learn all there is to know. I am more interested in photographing landscapes and wildlife; especially interested in equine photography. I have had some experience in photography, as I used to take portraits at the local wal-mart (haha). So far I have incredible models, my son :heart:, 3 crazy dogs, and a abundance of wildlife right out my back door. I am eager to learn from everyone here, and also to share with you some of my work. All the best, B.
