more dreaming

Ok, so part of the drive for doing the website that I shared about yesterday is to free up our time and create the financial resources to pursue other things we are passionate about..

Something that I have had in the back of my mind for a long time is to get really good at photography. I LOVE taking pictures. Love it, love it, love it!! But I don't know much about all the "real" photography stuff like aperture, depth of field, etc.

So, one of my goals this year is to practice.. Practice using all the features on my camera and teach myself how to be a "real" photographer. You know one that can take an amazing shot without using the auto function...

I have yet to dive into my users manual, but one of things I am hoping to do is to participate in more photography type things.. blogs, contests, clubs, etc..

Last week, I came across this totally awesome project, where you can enter a photo every week and have it be viewed and judged by a pro... And you can check out all the other cool entries for inspiration and ideas.

It is called "i heart faces" and focuses on taking pictures of people, which I love most of all..



Every week they have a theme and this week the theme is JOY.. so, last night while laying in bed, I was thinking about this and thought about this photo that I took last year while we were camping...



Total blissed out joy!!!

And it's official, today I entered my first photo contest!! Look at me go...

Yay! Welcome to the bandwagon. :) Love the picture. I still have to submit this weeks photo, too. Ugh, so little time. I'm just like you wanting to learn more and more about photography. I love taking pictures, too.
