Day 2 SOOO cold!

Today it was so cold! It took all the courage I could find to actually run out in the cold for half an hour and actually get a few pictures.
Out of all the ones I shot this one was my favorite after I edited them. I love Pleasant Grove Main Street! I used to work at the Grove Theatre right there, so I have spent a ton of time on that street! I decdided that would be my "inspiration" for today.

Keep Up!

Photography is still awesome! It has been a whole semester and I am still in love with Erin Summerill Photography. That is a good sign. I have been taking a class learning how to use my camera and I have gotten to shoot quite a lot of pictures. I learned how to shoot in manual this week instead of using auto. Its just three simple things that you have to adjust before you shoot in any location. Like if I were shooting at sunset you would first adjust your ISO to like 400. Then you would change your F-Stop to 8. Then you would adjust your shutter speed by watching the meter inside the camera and keeping the tag at zero. That has been my biggest accomplishment these last couple weeks at Erin Summerill Photography.
            The hardest thing for me right now is to remember to keep my blog updated. I decided to take up the 365 challenge. Your probably wondering what that is. That means I will take a picture everyday for the next 365 days of my life and I will record why I took that picture and my favorite part about it. It should be a good thing to remind me to keep my blog updated!
            I am writing this blog on a different computer so I don't have any amazing pictures to show you this time because they are all on my other computer! but I will for sure next time.

My brand new (to me) camera!

 I finally got a camera! It's a Nikon D5000 and I got it for only $425!! it was a great deal! It is my new obsession. But I don't know how to use it! I can't wait till I'm amazing with my new camera! I know how to shoot I just have to get used to using my camera and getting fast at it so that I can start making money with it. I am super excited. Once I start shooting I will upload all my pictures and talk to you guys a lot more!

What to do?

I haven't written on my blog in forever! So sorry! My boss's computer crashed  so we haven't had anything to do for the past week. Can't edit pictures, can't do pretty much anything. One day we were really really bored so she made me straighten my crazy curly hair and she dressed me up and took my"glamour shots" it was weird. But it was kinda fun! It was way different to be the one in front of the camera instead of the one behind the camera... but it was nice to be on the other side of the spectrum so you know how the other person feels when you are telling them to do all these awkward and strange poses. Now I know how they feel! If you want to see those pictures, click HERE! Being an intern has lots of benefits! But it also has it's major down falls. like running to Harts all the time buying drinks for my boss with my money that doesn't even exist. Right now I am potty training her two year old girl... that's super fun! -not. I'm learning a lot with it all either way! Even if it has nothing to do with photography!
