Looking back, I wish I had taken that photo class while I was at the Maryland Institute of Art in the mid 60's. Instead of years of traveling, taking what amounted to "record shots", I might be able to look back at my photos with pride. But priorities change, I have more time, and I'm seeing things differently now...making photos instead of just taking them. I've slowed down too and gotten a bit shakier, so now I am forced to use my tripod whether I like it or not. I am a Canon Rebel user (I'm on my third) and it's just perfect for me. My husband and I have enjoyed this hobby together for years...starting out in the St Louis Camera Club, and for the last 15 years taking an active roll in the Cookeville Camera Club in Tennessee, and recently PSA. I am a firm believer in Camera Clubs. They are a wonderful way to learn about photography and to share your love of the craft with like minded people. Let me just thank PSA for giving its members the opportunity of sharing their work with this New Member Gallery. I have certainly enjoyed looking at the work of other PSA members and hope you enjoy mine.
