One of the higlights of my Christmas was that my mom bought me a vintage film SLR camera and she gave me some of her dad's old film camera equipment which ended up being three 35mm film cameras and several lenses. Needless to say - I'm over the moon about it. I can not wait both to photograph the cameras themselves but also to use some of the film my mom gave me. I have been staring at my box of loot all day today, hoping I could get away while the light was good - but there were so many other things to do today and I've got nothing.
My favorite part about this time of year is looking ahead to the new year. I'm a big list maker and New Year's resolution maker. Of course a big part of that list is this blog and my photography classes. I'm working on putting together a couple e-books. One will be out January first and will be a companion to your new SLR camera (Download the first chapter here). I'm thinking that possibly a class on photo editing would be in order for January as well. I'm also going to be working on a lighthearted e-book on how to improve cell phone photography. I'm super-excited about it. You can get a sneak peak here. I'm really interested in what you - my faithful reader - would like to see.
