Class of 2008!

As most of you know my dad is the photographer in my family, but lately he has been so busy with work he hasn't had the chance to take pictures, so when a good family friend asked my dad to take their son's graduation pictures my dad volunteered me! I was a little shocked and scared because what if the pictures I took didn't turn out well or what if they didn't like them?!?! I took the chance anyway and I was suprised at how well some of them turned out. And our friends were very pleased with the results, so I was very happy. Alex was awesome to work with and my mom helped me out a ton with posing (I'm still trying to be more creative with my posing). My next step is to learn Photoshop more and play around with all the cool features! Here are a few of the shots I got.

Since I don't have Photoshop at home I don't have the ability to really play around with the pictures, so I uploaded a few onto Photobucket and played around with their effects and this is what I came up with. I wanted these pictures to have a sort of old photo feel and I think I achieved that.

My Hobby

I decided it might be fun to start a blog about my favorite hobby, since I really have nothing else exciting going on in my life to show you! HAHAHA

My favorite hobby has always been photography! I've always used a 35mm camera but I decided I wanted to explore digital photography more so I bought a new camera (Canon 40D) and have been very pleased with it so far. I've always enjoyed taking pictures, but over the last few years I never really took the time to practice. Now that I have this new camera it's definitely motivated me to get out more and see what the camera and I can do. Luckily I have a beautiful sister that has been very good model for me to practice on. Now it's time to be brave and show the work I have done. I hope you enjoy and PLEASE tell me what you think!!

More to come....
