A Picture a Day

Hello again! My, my, my it has been a while. It seems for the past year and half or so my posts have only been solely about music and a couple of cool stories my wife has done on KSL. A lot has happened over that time and rather than try to catch up, I've decided to just start from scratch again.... For starters, Shara is pregnant, which seemed like a perfect time to save up and purchase a semi-professional Digital SLR camera. We found a great deal on a Canon EOS Rebel XS with a bunch of different features including 2 lenses. I decided I need A TON of practice, and what better way to do that than to just start taking pictures and researching how to make them look cool/interesting/professional. Anyway, my friend Melanie Swanson does this "Picture a day" blog that I think is such a creative idea and a perfect way to capture every day moments that might otherwise go unnoticed. So I've decided to adopt the same philosophy. From here on out, I'm going to take at least 1 picture a day in hopes of increasing my photography skills, and also to eventually capture the moments our little baby will bring into our home. We are really excited and honestly I'm getting to the point where becoming a dad is all I'm thinking about during my days at work.

So, I bring to you another hobby that I hope to be somewhat good at, but mainly just want to copy and mimic some of the incredible photographers I have as friends that have inspired me to want to take photos myself. Please bear with me as I learn how to make my pictures the best they can be, and I would love any advice or tips you budding photographers have learned along the way. Enjoy!

Day 1. 10.10.2010

Sometimes I tackle a ton of laundry and run out of room to hang in our laundry room. Thus I need to find interesting places to air dry extra shirts that I don't like to put in the dryer. These are the majority of dress shirts I wear on a daily basis.

Yay! I'm excited to see your daily pictures and interested in your camera. I have been wanting to get a higher quality one for awhile. Let me know if you like it!

Sounds like a great idea. Tyler wasn't a big picture fan when we got married but now he likes taking tons of pictures, especially of Nathan. Congrats on the little one! You will love it!!

Yay for blogging! I wish I could take the credit for the idea, but I stole it after following a pair of bloggers back in 2007 who took a picture a day every morning. (It is now a book. see: )
Anyway I am sure you will do worlds better than me with my lame old point and shoot!
