What a fantastic experience it is to take a picture of someone and have it turn out to be a keeper.  I’m not saying that it always happens this way, but when it does, I know it.  It’s the feeling I feel when I look at one of my pictures and say, “This one is good.” 

I’ve had my “good” camera for one year now, and I was mentioning to someone that I just recently turned over the counter for the second time.  That means I’ve taken over 20,000 pictures since last November.  Of course, I haven’t kept all of them…I’m sure not even half of them.  What it does mean is that I’ve done a lot of practicing.   With a digital camera there’s no excuse for not practicing.  What does it cost…nothing.  It only makes us get better at something we love to do.

I posted some new “model” pictures on a page to the right.  Scroll down and to the right and click on “Models” to see a few that I’ve taken since Sept.

I hope all of you have a great Christmas Holiday.  If you get a new camera and you are off on Thursday mornings, come join my class at El Rancho Adult School.If you are new to digital and want to learn Photoshop Elements, my Computers for Photographers class on Thurday afternoons at the Adult School is filled with eager students soaking up everything that has to do with  cameras, computers, and creativity.

Don’t forget, if you need to hire a photographer, I’m available.I’m working on my webpage.  Hopefully it will be up soon.  It’s a little late for Christmas, but I still have some dates open this year for your Holiday Event, or next year for portraits or weddings…or whatever event your company or school or church may need.
