Snapadoodledoo

I’ve always had an appreciation for Photography.  It’s been on my long list of aspiring talents for quite some time, but never ranked high enough to truly be given any attention.  But then…

An acquaintance of mine posted on Facespace that they were going to be moving cross-country (I guess it’s a big year for that in our circles?) and needed many many much moola. She was offloading quite a few things that she a) didn’t use very much, b) wouldn’t need post move, and/or c) had to get rid of to reduce distractions as she went back to school. Lucky for me, this included a nice, beginner level DSLR for only $300… AND she was throwing in a telephoto lens to go with it, as well as several beginner photography DVDs and two carrying cases. It was really a hard deal to pass up.

So I didn’t!

I bought the thing, and now just need to get the hang of it. I no longer have a ton of boxes to unpack, and since I have a working tv again, I don’t have a whole lot of excuses for not popping in those DVDs and exercising my shutter finger.

Since I’m ready to start planning things out for decorating around this plizace, it’s time to start snapping some pictures to share with you all as well. Hopefully then the context will help it all make sense, since Lord knows my brain never seems to.

I’m not looking to become a professional photographer, or anything, but I’d like to keep from sharing posts with blurry, oddly-lit pics. Also, I’d like to be able to frame and hang photos that I’ve taken myself, without it being so obvious.

So that’s that. Anyone have any tips or suggested tools to get the hang of this thing quickly? What’s the best way to learn to take crisp photos? Any experienced photographers out there that may have some pointers for me?

Shoot!    (heh… sorry. I’m a sucker for a good pun)
