this is me taking the plunge.

Photobucket

when i lived in china, i started taking pictures. 

i was the weird american creeper, taking pictures of cute chinese children with my point and shoot. 
and i loved every minute of it. 

then a couple of years ago, i got my first dslr, 
my fancy dancy camera and...
well...
i'm still trying to figure out what all those dang buttons mean.

enter snapshot workshop from ashley ann photography. 
this morning i signed up, and i couldn't be more excited.

when i read this description of the course, i knew it was for me...

  The course is designed for the beginner photographer, not for those that are advanced or have a good understanding of using a dslr on the Manual setting. It is for those that the words “aperture”, “shutter speed” and “ISO” sound like a foreign language, but one they would like to learn to speak. It is for those that are captivated by photographs that tell a story and dream of capturing the beauty of their own everyday life. In this course, you will find original content that I have developed over the last four years. I would love to help you go from knowing how to just take a picture to beautifully capturing the moments of your life.

my main goal for 2013 is to develop this love i have for photography.
i dream of the day it is more than just a hobby.

confession: i want to be a "real" photographer (whatever that means:) and this is my first baby step to making that dream a reality.

i'm so ready/so terrified to begin this journey, but my passion and desire aren't giving me much of a choice.

here's to a lot of a trial and error, a lot of learning, and a lot of discovering more of who i am in the process.
