I was happily living in my own little world of “Point and Shoot” photography until April, 2009. When I stumbled onto… yup you guessed it… The Pioneer Woman’s Website. . .
So, in August of 2009, my husband bought me a Nikon D60 with an 18-55mm lens.
Photoshop Elements 7 was purchased about a week later…
As you can see, I am a TOTAL ROOKIE when it comes to Photography. . .
but I am eager to learn. . . so much I can almost TASTE it. . .
Unfortunately not everything written about photography
is easy to understand for the TOTAL ROOKIE beginner.
For example. . . I read my camera’s manual. . .
Cover. to. Cover.
(YES I’m a dork like that)
but I felt even MORE confused . . . and kinda NAUSEOUS. . .
So I hopped on Amazon and bough “Nikon D60 for Dummies” by Julie Adair King.
(which helped explain A LOT about my camera with GREAT pictures and examples).
And I started looking for “Photography” tabs, links, labels, tags. . .
and I started reading them. . .
and bookmarking them. . .
and talking about them at the dinner table. . .
and my husband’s eyes started to glaze over…
So, I thought I’d share them with you!
