Welcome to my new blog, Mommy's Camera! This blog is dedicated to all those Mommys with point & shoot cameras who pretend to be professional photographers :) Ok, to be honest, I started this blog because I'm intimidated with most of the other photography blogs out there. I want to learn more about photography but most of the tutorials are way above my head. Plus, most are written by professional or semi-professional photographers who have great cameras to start with. I wanted something for your AVERAGE mom who doesn't have the money to spend on a nice camera or great photo editing software. Speaking of photo editing software, in this blog I will be using Gimp, not Photoshop or Photoshop Elements! Why? Because Gimp is FREE and your AVERAGE mom can afford it! Suposedly Gimp is pretty good photo editing software for being FREE. So far it's above my head and I'm trying to learn that too :) My camera? An embarrassing, 8 year old, 4 mega pixel, Cannon Powershot A80! (See, I really am your average mom with a P&S camera!)
This blog is a work in progress and I'm not quite sure how I'm going to go about it. Bear with me as we learn together. What are you waiting for? Join me as I get out of the auto mode of my camera and learn to be a better photographer!
A small edit: On July 29, 2010 Hubby surprised me with a new camera--a Canon SX20 IS! Read about the surprise here. Don't worry, it's still a Point and Shoot camera, just a much better one than my A80.
