The Ultimate Blog Party 2011!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome to Mommy's Camera Ultimate Blog Party Post!

*This post will change throughout the day/week as I have time to do some more fun things.  If you are reading this early in the week, come back later in the week to see what changes!

A little about me: 
My name is Jamie and I am the author of Mommy's Camera.  I'm in my early 30s, have been married almost 11 years, am the mom two girls, a 4-legged boy, and a 4-legged girl.   My girls (nicknamed in real life) are Nutty Butty (Nutty for short on my blog--4.75 years) and Tater Tottie (Tottie for short on my blog--2.5 years).  My boy dog is a pure-bread Boxer named TJ and my girl dog is a pure-bread French Bulldog named Suzy.  I have been a Pediatric Intensive Care Nurse for 11 years and I LOVE it!  In my limited spare time I enjoy photography, digital scrapbooking, outdoor activities, and just hanging out with my friends.

A little about Mommy's Camera:
My 30 second elevator pitch:  Learning photography with a point & shoot camera and free photo editing software in a DSLR and Photoshop world.  Ok, really, as I mentioned above, I enjoy photography.  I'd love to learn to be better at it but I don't have the money to invest in expensive cameras and equipment.  I've got a Canon SX 20 point & shoot camera, and I use free photo editing software that I find on the internet.  When searching the web for tutorials on how to improve my photography, I came across so many tutorials geared toward DSLR users and Photoshop users.  I found very few, if any, tutorials for point & shoot camera users and for free photo editing software.  Plus, the tutorials were written for people who already knew a little about photography and photo editing.  Most were above my head.  That's how Mommy's Camera was born!  I write tutorials geared toward beginner to average photographers!  I'm teaching myself how to push my camera and software to the max and writing tutorials to help others along the way!  Grab your point-and-shoot camera and learn along with me!

My Community:
Come join me, other Mommy's Camera readers and photographer wanna-bes in the Mommy's Camera Community!  Chat, learn, and have fun!  No question is too dumb.  I'll be starting some community challenges soon too!

Hi there! Stopping in from the UBP party - so nice to meet you. Have you tried getting Photoshop Elements on Ebay? You can get older versions really inexpensively - that's how I got started anyway.

Hey Jamie, Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. You have a great spot here. Don't under-rate yourself w/a point and shoot. The take great pictures and you can do a lot with them. And you are! I'm still learning and finding my niche so maybe we can teach each other some things. :) Have a fabulous weekend. Blessings, SusanD
