Since, this really is my only blog that I know how to run, I thought I might as well start here! For about 1 and half years, I have been taking night or Saturday photography classes up at SAIT and also online.   One more course to take, and I will have my photography certificate.  I don’t need  it, but I learn better when I have to practise, and because it gives me a sense of accomplishment to start something and say, that I have finished it! I have no intention to become the next and upcoming portrait photographer, although it may be really fun to get some studio lights, to practise with!   Each class that I am currently in, inspires me to buy something new! 

I started so I could learn how to use my DSLR camera, to improve my jewelry shots.    If it wasn’t for this business of “Precious Sadie’s” I would not have had the opportunity to earn some extra cash for lenses, and photography equipment, which also could be applied for  education credits and tax write offs!

I find when I have a camera in hand or within close reach, I do look at things differently.  My artistic eye is looking for composition, catch lights, back lights, backgrounds, shadows, etc.

As a challenge for myself I have entered the world of stock agencies. I have always loved the idea of advertizing! Stock pictures are used in advertisements, flyers, magazines, textbooks,  etc and it can give me a challenge to keep at it. 

I currently am with two agencies that have improved my photos, but I will have to add a lot more before I get noticed.  The need for stock pictures is constantly changing, and something that will push me to expand my creativity!  

So, starting today, I am going to try to post a picture a day, and the story behind it!


Please note, my photo resolution on the web, will be small on purpose!
