Welcome to Our BlogCheryl and I are excited that you stopped by to see what we've been up to. Both of us have had the photography bug germinating for many years and as we move into our retirement years, look forward to sharing the wonderful beauty that our dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has made.

Most of the time when a trip or journey begins you have some idea where it is headed, although we never know where it is going to end up. That’s exactly how I feel about this latest “adventure/journey” Cheryl and I are on. We’ve invested a lot of time and some money in getting better at taking pictures. The people listed below are a small list of those who have been helpful, instructional, encouraging and challenging.
- Peter West Carey
- Darrin Rowse
- Digital Photography School.
- Josh Wassung
- Zack and Jody at Gray Photography
- The Strobist
- Colby Brown
As time goes by I know I’ll keep adding to this list.
Our next great adventure is to photograph the wedding reception of my niece Sarah Stiles and her fiance Evan in Hawaii. I know tough duty. Josh, Cheryl’s son, is the one who lit the fire under us last Christmas by giving me his old Canon Rebel. After close to a year of trying to view the small screen on the back of the Rebel we bit the bullet and bought a new Canon 5D Mark II. Now that was one big step! I’ve been busy trying to learn how to properly use this great blessing from the Lord. Last night we froze on the back porch getting flash exposures to come out clear.
We would both like to travel and do the photography thing full time but until that is possible we continue to wait and look and learn. Sounds like a never ending process. When you think of it, that isn’t a bad thing. : )
