A Budding Photographer

Okay, so you'll have to forgive the pun of a title - I couldn't resist. :)

As you may remember, my sister has a photography business called Artistic Avenues. I currently do the marketing for the company, but we have been talking about trying to train me to be a "second shooter" for the weddings she covers.

I have no photography experience, other than enjoying beautiful photos taken by others! My husband has a pretty sweet SLR camera, so I'm trying to learn some of the basics with that. I took these photos of some beautiful flowers my sister bought me...

It's not much, but it's a start! I'm excited about learning how to take beautiful photos. I'll be sure to share the process with you. In the meantime, do you have any photography "how to" sites I should know about?


  1. great shots. I would not have known they weren't done by a pro!

  2. Can I just tell you that with every post we seem to be more alike. If that is even possible. There are tons of good sites to learn on (ill send you an email). One of my scrapbooker friends pretty much taught me what I know she sells tutorials here:
    Incase you missed it (because I have been kinda quiet about it) I started a Portrait photography business.
    Look for an email with more sites :)

  3. I just got my first DSLR, isn't it great? I got some great tips from The Pioneer Woman:

  4. Gorgeous pics! I like to play with our DSLR, but definitely don't take very amazing pics yet! I like reading That Wife regularly, but she does good pointers on photog too!

  5. Hello August bride,my husband and I got married August 22 so I am always reading your page bc we share the same sentiments. I noticed you are a budding photogrpher and I own a modeling agency, we give freelance photo lessons at a good price..let me know if you are interested. Love your page.
