Learning your craft

In the last 2 1/2 years I've been perfecting my craft of photography.
It is what keeps me sane in this crazy world.

I can proudly and honestly say I'm not perfect and my skills still need some work, but my skills have grown substantially in the last year.

I'm blessed with a skill that will always be rewarding.
Not only can I successfully capture memories for other people, but of my own children.
I can now proudly display my works of art on the walls at my house, my in-laws house, and at my parents house.

There is nothing more special that being able to give one of a kind gifts.
My mother in-law LOVES photos. So I am constantly buying prints for my mother in-law.

So what have I done to really learn my craft?
I've read and researched every last thing I could possibly find.
I took 2 online workshops that are offered by Rachel Brenke.
I invested in a better camera and lenses.
And lastly I spent time with a mentor and had a hands on session.
I picked her brain about all things photography, business, etc.
I'm still reading and researching everything I possibly can about photography.

I must admit I'm proud of how my photography has improved.
My photos aren't just snapshots anymore. They're beautiful and striking images.
I wish I could post my personal images of my children on here to show you just how much my photography has improved. 
Maybe I'll be able to show you some improvements from my friends wedding photos to my step-sister in-laws wedding photos (she's getting married in October to one of my husband's Marines).

In the next 2 weeks I'm thinking about comparing lenses here on my blog.
But I'll have to rent a few lenses in order to compare them.
Which will be no problem. I just need to decide which lenses to rent.

If you want to see a review on a specific mm lens please let me know.
I'm leaning towards renting the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L  & the Canon 35mm f/1.4L & the Canon 35mm f/1.4L.
I may even rent the Canon 100mm f/2.8L (Macro) for the wedding so I can get great detail shots of their rings and such with my Canon T1i (yup I'm going to be rocking two cameras, I don't want to miss anything)! 

I'm partly looking to see which lens I like best for the upcoming wedding that we're going to be attending in October.
I may even buy one of these lenses in the near future.

Well I'm off to take care of the household chores!

Have a great day,
Tori D.
