I think i will have to work on catchier titles, but as this is my first post i will stick with the date for today. Because today was the day that i would participate in project 365. now a good blogger would immediately provide you with a link to websites about project 365, but i am a novice and havent got a freshly prepared website. In fact i am squeezing in this little bit of blogging very quickly before i go to work for my night duty.
So firstly project 365 is quite simply about taking a photo each day and creating a kind of photo journal of your year. It can be as arty or as mundane as you want. I am hoping for a bit of both. We will see. You might notice that i am 17 days late starting. That would be fairly normal for me. in fact i nearly didnt start. But it just seems like such a good idea.
Now secondly about us. I think we are fairly ordinary people. I am a midwife, my husband is also a midwife but is now working in emergency department. he is starting work on his masters this year so i think it might be me blogging while he studies. But we love taking photographs. I would like to say we love photography but that is an exaggeration because really we are rank beginners. We have beautiful cameras. He has a canon 400d and i have the canon 40d. (yep mine is bigger than his). We are starting a photography course in Feb so i am really hoping to improve my skills this year. I have a particular interest in photos of babies and pregnant/labouring women. If i could train for a new career (and i may have to as my back is a bit dodgy) it would be as a photographer. I work with cs3 and am constantly learning new things about my software... there is so much to learn! i am a passionate digital scrapbooker.
As we go.. i hope to put some links up to sites i visit and lots and lots of photos. Today is just a hello day. Please dont come here expecting too much. I am a novice blogger. So it is going to take me a while to get comfortable here and rearrange the furniture the way i would like it.
Just a little example of my work with some information about me. Now additionally i need to make sure that i give credit to Happy Scrap Girl over at Scrapmatters.com for her gorgeous Taylor kit which i used to make my blog header. it is one of my favorite kits!
