I was lucky to enough to get a really nice camera for my birthday this past May, and I really haven't had much time to really learn how to use it. It's not your typical point and shoot camera. It has a lot of buttons and settings and acronyms that I know nothing about. It frustrates me because most of the photos I take of the boys are with my iPhone. Now that is completely unacceptable. I mean Instagram is cool and all, but I wanted a nice camera for a reason. Therefore, over the next few months, I'm going to dedicate a few nights a week to really learn how to use this camera. And in a effort to hold myself accountable, I hereby declare Tuesdays "photog days". I'll post a photo or two that I've taken that week with my camera. I figure it will force me to actually use it. So here is my first photo: a holiday self-portrait, if you will.
