What I Know About Photography: An Introduction

Many of you dear readers have asked me to share with you some wise words on photography. Well, let me just tell you that the mere thought of sharing my photography prowess makes me feel fraudulent to the nth degree... right up there with teaching parents how to be "good" at their most important job. But, hell, I do that every day. So, here goes...

Photography is a learning process. Just like positive parenting is a learning process, healthy living is a learning process, successful gardening is a learning process, living eco-consciously is a learning process... you get the picture, right? I am so incredibly green on my photography journey, it's remarkable. There is just so much I don't know yet. But, there are a few things I do know. And, as the old adage states, go with what you know. Or something like that. Well, I can do that. And, as I grow to know more, I'll be willing to share more. Sound fair?

OK, then let's begin.



Welcome to click, click, chirp- the newest blog series here at Sweet Peas & Sassafras. I already have a first lesson taking shape in my feeble little brain. Let's give it a day or two to stew in there. For the meanwhile, why don't you share some specifics on what you'd like me to address. What are your photography hang-ups? What overwhelms you? What do you want to learn how to do? What is it that you like {thank you, thank you, thank you- picture compliments are the highest form of flattery for this SPH Mama} about the pictures you see here on the blog?

So, if the answer to my little blog title prompt hasn't scared you away, good! I am excited to get started on this fun little journey with you lovelies! Stay tuned...

Your lighting is phenomenal! Do you meter? Use a light source? I just got a speedlite and soft box and am loving it! Also what photo editing do you use?

I enrolled in a photography class at Wichita City Arts, for my birthday present to myself, and I'm SO excited about it. I agree, your lighting is wonderful, and I'd also really like to know what editing software you use as well!
