I don't have the best camera there is, this (only) one is gifted from husband Christmas of 2007, a little over 4 years ago! And I only have gotten around to it quite recently. I kind of utilized it much like a point-and-shoot camera. But ever since I found too many aspiring photography bloggers, they immediately served as my inspirations. I knew I had to push myself out of my comfort zone (Auto Mode) and really make use of the camera's full potential and play on the Manual settings.....about freakin' time!

I don't have Photo editing Software, so most, if not all of my photos are Straight Out Of my Camera (SOOC) shots. Here are my current wishlists:
Lightroom 3
Adobe Photoshop CS5
