life is a journey not a destination
So.....I decided I needed a "real" camera to take better photos of my jewelry. Here are the things I learned along the way (so far):
1. It won't be cheap. Don't even try. Just do the research and buy the camera.
2. It will take some (significant) amount of time to get good pics. Point & shoot? Not so much.
3. Fstop? Aperture? Shutter speed? ISO? White balance? Exposure compensation? Yes. You have to learn all the things about the camera & how it works.
4. Tiny shiny things are really hard to photograph. Ok, I'll already knew this but I am learning it all over again
5. The number of people you ask about the quality of your new photos will equal the number of different opinions you will get about your photos.
7. Keep moving, keep shooting, keep adjusting

Lake Martin, Louisiana
One of our favorite places is Lake Martin, near Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Only about 45 minutes from our home, we especially enjoy canoeing the lake this time of year, when egrets and roseate spoonbills make their nests in the cypress trees in the lake.
The irises were in full bloom and we topped it all off with a big plate of hot crawfish! A perfect day! On a day like this, there is honestly inspiration everywhere I look!!
Irises in bloom - purple, yellow & copper iris! Do you want another look at a recent Louisiana "mini-vacation"? Go HERE to see!
