Tick Off Tuesday.


Thanks to Carrie for this carnival she calls Tick Off Tuesday. Join in on the fun.
--------------------

I love taking pictures. I love editing pictures. I'm not awesome but I am pretty good.

Nothing ticks me off more than for someone to say, "Your pictures are so good. What kind of camera do you have? I can't wait to get a camera like that so that I can take pictures like you."

Time out.

My camera isn't that great.

It is better than a point and shoot but it isn't awesome. {This is not my camera but one day it will be.}

Just in case you were wondering, the camera just takes the picture that I tell it to take. The camera doesn't tell me where to take the picture, how to take the picture, or what lens to use to take the picture.

That, my friends, is me.

That is my job.

I'm not a snob and I'm not being a bitch. My pictures are nowhere as great as others that I know. Anyway, if you want an awesome camera, buy an awesome camera. Learn how to take pictures and love what you do.

Next time we have a conversation, compliment me. Don't act like my pictures are only good because I have a DSLR.

This was taken with my little point and shoot.



Just as good as these, yes?

Yes, you are right! Hailey-- you are an amazing photographer! Just as soon as I can find a day that works, I'm going to let you use your God-given talents on my little Stokies! I won't even care if you take them all with your point-and-shoot because YOU rock with whatever you choose! :)

I hear ya girl!! The tool must have master! I always love your pics :)

That is an incredible photo. And I agree that the talent lies squarely in the hands of the person holding the camera - not in the camera.

You are very right...and I totally know it's you..because I can't get the shots I want and I don't have the eye for things like you do!

You are so right! It doesn't matter what camera you have...you have to know how to use it. Cliff has had really nice cameras and my pictures taken with them are awful because I have no idea what I am doing!!! Your pictures are great! I need to call you to take some of Reagan! =)
