Photography Par Excellence

My daughter-in-law is a photography-nut but I love it. I don't think there's a week that goes by that I don't get a message from her to view the photos of our incredibly photogenic grandkids.

Granted, she gets her photography gene honestly from her dad. Should any of my off-centered, blurry photos get his approval, I'm ecstatic. Needless to say, I've had few compliments so far.

Part of the blame, I think, has to do with my mom (sorry, mom). I can't take a photo (of a beautiful landscape, for instance) without hearing her tell me, "No photo is a good photo without a person in it."

Another part falls with the camera, I'm convinced. Maybe I should rely less on size and trust digital camera reviews more. I might even heed Best Buy's suggestion on the right camera for my particular purposes.

But when it really comes down to it, I am photographically handicapped and need some guidance from someone who knows. Oh well.

I know how you feel. I have three daughters who are good at it - 2 are so skilled that Sam's Club keeps saying they can't get their pix developed there because they were done by a "professional." LOL :) Fortunately one finally got a biz license and now Sam's likes her again :) It does make for GREAT pix of the grandkids, that's for sure.
