I'm a little disappointed that you've forgotten to invite me to your exclusive BlogHer party two years in a row.
I can't really blame you, though. I mean, even though I've had this blog for 2 1/2 years and my D60 for a year and a half, I don't really show off my photos, do I?
I don't really know why. I used to be so good about going through my pictures every week. Editing them, posting them, sharing them here on my blog.
But life is busy. There just isn't enough time. And so I've gotten out of the habit.
I haven't stopped taking pictures. But I have been favoring my Canon SD1000 (my little, fit-in-your-pocket point-n-shoot) over the D60.
I never really learned to use it properly. I can kinda fake it...I don't always shoot in auto mode.
But its a shame, really. I've been told I have a good eye for composition. If I could just get my technical skill, both when using the camera and then in PhotoShop, up to par, I might really have some work to be proud of.
So maybe by this time next year, you'll have sent me an invite to your fancy shmancy party.
And my little guy will learn to smile for the camera.

Really, this isn't about being invited to a party. I just thought the idea of presenting this as a letter was funny. Its more that taking pictures is important to me, and its something I really like to do. Since getting my Nikon for Christmas in 2008 I've been telling myself that I was going to learn how to properly use it, and more often than not, its sat in its case in my closet unused. Its about time I make good on that promise to myself! I may take a class or two, but I will definitely be posting more pictures.
