Good evening everyone-As many of you know AR is filled with smart, giving, selfless people that are willing to help you if you ask for it. I did that this week with 3 of Active Rain's finest and they responded with their time and expertise. For that I am most grateful and appreciative and wanted to go the extra mile and send them all a public as well as a private THANK YOU.
All three of these folks are exceptionally gifted when it comes to many things and one of them is photography. They showcase their gorgeous photos for all of us on Active Rain to admire and each of them has a real passion for it and it shows in all their photos. I love to take pics of anything except myself and with the garden and the birds it does give me changing photo ops. Trouble is while I have a passion for taking them I haven't been having the success all the time as I wanted. It has been very frustrating as I used to not have a problem.
So I have decided to buy myself a new and better camera but know very little about them. I bought my first digital about 5 yrs ago and for quite a while I could take a picture of anything I wanted with no problem but last year I started having problem with the clarity of the pics I take and it has been frustrating as I don't know what I am doing differently than I had done before.
So I called on 3 of Active Rain's finest photographers to pick their brain and ask their expert advice. I was given a wealth of knowledge on different cameras including not spending a lot of money unless I was rich, learn to become a master of whatever camera I chose. One other very valuable piece of advice I was given and would never thought of was it may very well need cleaning and that was causing some of my photos to turn out blurry. So now I have my homework and will be learning all I can learn before I purchase one.
So this post is my public THANK YOU to these VERY gifted, talented friends. It meant more to me than words can ever convey. God Bless each of you. These are the 3 friends. I am thankful to each of them.
