A break from the norm...

Well, I have been a crafting fool lately and I do have lots to share with you all but today I thought I would take a break from all that and work on my photography skills a bit. I am so loving my new Canon DSLR and even just pointing and shooting it takes better pictures than my other digital camera. But I really want to take AMAZING pictures so I am practicing whenever I get a chance and playing around with the settings and photographing different things. Here are a few of my favorite nature photos that I took:

This photo is my absolute favorite of the bunch. I have already printed it up in a 5x7 size to frame. I took this picture in my yard and let me tell you the flower/scenery really didn't look quite this pretty in person but with the close detail of the flower and blurring of the background I think it looks gorgeous in this photo.

I am looking to take a photography class in the near future so if anyone has taken a great one online I'd love to hear about it!

Wow, that first pic IS amazing! Vibrant! I'm a big fan of the blurry background. LOL. The others are awesome as well.

I took the basic photography class through Jessica Sprague and really enjoyed it and learned good things. They provide lots of materials to print and keep for reference too.
