I have always been fascinated with photography. As a kid, back when cameras had film, I learned the basics of photography through 4-H. While my projects often won blue ribbons at the county fair, that is the extent of my photography education.
Over the next 20 years — through college, kids, and career — I promised myself that “some day” I would get a nicer-than-point-and-click-camera and take some photography classes. While I recently made good on the camera part of that dream, I’m still not sure how I can fit in photography classes with four kids at home. So this blog, a 2012 resolution of sorts, will help me continue to work toward the other part of that dream by taking and blogging about one picture a day throughout 2012.
All of the photos on this blog (with the exception of the one borrowed from the Nikon USA web site for this first post) have been taken by me with my new Nikon Coolpix L120 unless otherwise specified. Yes, I know there are fancier cameras out there. I just don’t have one of them. Yet.
I hope that the sheer force of taking 365 photos in 2012 will help me hone my photography skills. I welcome tips and constructive criticism from more talented photographers than I am who stumble upon this site. If you see a photo you like, please feel free to link to the post on my blog or e-mail me at email@example.com. The photos posted here may be amateur, but they’re my work and shouldn’t be used without permission.
