Mini FreakOUT!!

Posted in Uncategorized by honestyhonestly on 5 March 2010

So I was just testing out my camera and what lens I wanted to use and had a mini freakout b/c my 50mm 1.4 lens wouldn’t work on my Pentax K20D… After a little panicked research on google, I found out my lens was not in auto mode… THANK THE LORD that was all that was wrong!! So thank you Pentax message boards for not allowing me to cry over a broken lens… I learn something new everyday!!!

Work…and stuff:)

Posted in Uncategorized by honestyhonestly on 2 March 2010

I am sooo sick of work but I have good news!! I am officially on 10 hr days! I only work Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday… I have off every single Wednesday now:) Super excited about this. My days seem to go by faster for some reason. I think its this new schedule we are on in addition to the longer hours. It tends to keep us busier which is nice. 

So now I have my Wednesday’s to focus on other aspects of my life.  As an amatuer photographer trying to go pro, I might try to find a photography class I can get into for those days or maybe just spend my days researching on the Internet until a new class starts up at the Community College.   I have learned so much from a few blogs and sites already:

  • The Digital Photography School  is an AWESOME resource! From lighting to lenses to everything in between including bags and tips and techniques are included in this blog/site.
  • Strobist is another site that is teaching me a ton about Lighting.
  • I love portrait photography and I ♥ Faces is a great place to enter weekly contests, get freebies, and get inspired by other great photographers..

I am always looking for inspiration and ideas so if anyone knows of any other photography resources I would love it… I also love good cooking blogs to catch up on so any suggestions on those would be fantastic too!

Anyway… Long story short, this will be a GREAT opportunity for me to spend some time learning instead of wasting my life away at work!
