Hello world!

Well, lookit that — WordPress has already put a title in place for me.

There is so much that goes on in a daily life, even the mundane things are small celebrations. Misha has been sick since Thursday afternoon with some upper respiratory thing (which I had too); today he sounds like he’s got sandpaper in his throat, but he’s not running a fever: for that I am grateful.

Please be patient with me as I learn the ins and outs of blogging; it seems to be a major task to find a page style that suits me, and I’m likely to change it ’round as I search.

I started a new group on MeetUp called Photographers on a Shoestring. I intended it to be a welcoming place for beginning photographers, people who have a small point n’shoot that they want to really get something out of. For a year and a half I shot solely with a 4 megapixel Kodak EasyShare point n’shoot — I think I pushed it as far as it could go. I recently bought a 10 megapixel  Kodak, and it and I are constantly arguing, so I am not happy with it. My group, though, has ten members already, all at various levels of experience.

I just don’t want the newbies intimidated. I know from my own experience that when you’re learning, it’s sometimes easy to get overwhelmed and intimidated by those more experienced, and that’s what I’m trying to avoid. This is not about the camera body or the glass, but the eye and the skill that is used to capture the image.
