Fabulous Find Friday...

I really enjoy photography. But just to be clear, I am not a pro. I don't claim to be and you can tell that yourself by looking at my photos. I take most of my pictures on "auto" because it stresses me out to mess with the lighting and have to worry about things like ISO and aperture. After all, I have enough to worry about with Ellen leaving Idol and my favorite dancers dropping like flies on SYTYCD.

Even though I'm fairly novice when it comes to photography I still love it. There is nothing more important to me than my photos and my memories. I'm so glad I have photographic evidence of the time my sister and I told my brother (at 3 or 4 yrs old...) that mom said he had to do what we said or he would be grounded. We proceeded to dress him up in old dance uniforms and make him pose. Then we made him snuggle in a lawn chair with our Yorkie with a bow in his hair...I can't wait until he has a wedding video...

Or the time my mom was taking family photos and my sister spread her legs open as a joke (while wearing a jean skirt) and my mom happened to snap the picture at the same time. And praise the lord we have like 5 years of awkward photos of me wearing things like Mia sandals and jean dresses. Bless my heart.

Nonetheless, I will continue to take pictures and try my hardest to get better! I'm trying to find the right photography class for me and then hopefully a photoshop class! I got my camera (which I LOVE) for Christmas and I'm having fun figuring it out. Everything is a photo-op these days!

Like everything, cameras need gear! I recently WON a camera strap from a fabulous giveaway that Sarah and the City had! I was so stinkin' excited...I never win anything! And, y'all have to check out Sarah's blog. She's planning a wedding that is sure to be fabulous! I digress...I picked out this cute strap below and I received it a few weeks ago! I love that it has a pocket for your lens cap.

These are from Happy Snapz and there are tons of cute patterns to choose from. I love these too...
At the top of my "wish list" though is one of these amazing Kelly Moore Bags. I only have a couple of lenses and even that is a lot to cart around. You just want to make sure that nothing gets scratched, but the camera bags aren't the most stylish things in the world...that is until now! These hobo style bags are the cutest! I don't even know what color I want yet.
Amazon has a few more styles and colors than Kelly's website. Go look! And if you start shopping and get into the "one for me, one for you" mentality, just go with it! I am more than happy to be the "one for you" in that equation! :) I'm really considerate like that. Have a great weekend!

Your photos are beautiful! I love the shot of your pup in the side mirror - so creative! I'm strongly considering a dSLR camera - but I just don't know that I have the time to learn to use one right now. How long did it take to get comfortable with your camera?

omg that purse is AWESOME!

Love the pics you took, girl! And I, too, LURVE photography. My father was actually a professional photographer! I've always wanted to take a class, but I can't find one locally that is really the level I want. I don't want completely basic, but something that teaches me more about lighting, angles, etc, ya know.. :)
