I am an Ohio teacher who loves taking photographs! I started with a 35mm Canon camera that took amazing pictures... but the lure of digital was too much and I had to get one! I enjoyed my little Nikon Coolpix but it didn't produce those "wow" pictures I got with the Canon. So... after some "saving up", I got my first DSLR, a Nikon D40, and I LOVED it! My husband (after much hinting) purchased photoshop elements and an additional lens for me for Christmas and since then, I've been addicted to shooting photos, editing photos, sharing photos etc. ... you get the picture! Yes, even my students benefit from my photography obsession (first graders LOVE having their picture taken). Photography is my hobby and I love it!
Update... I am now shooting with a Nikon d7000 and using both the 50mm and 85mm lenses! I am LOVING my new camera and lenses!!
