I'm 16 and I picked up a camera a little under a year ago. I joined flickr about the same time. I really love photography and even though I'm just started to learn the basics, I still enjoy it. :)
I really appreciate your comments and critique. I strive to do better, so feel free to speak your mind. However, I do ask that you refrain from being crude.
Thanks for stopping by and good luck shooting!! :)
**I get a lot of mail. So please don't feel slighted if I don't respond right away or if I do not add you as a contact. I like to keep my contact's list smaller rather than larger. So where I may like your work, I am very picky about who I add. Thank you for understanding **
This quote by Marianne Williamson has been a great inspiration to me and has had a great impacted on my photography. I thought i'd share. =o)
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
I've had a lot of people ask me what camera and lens I use etc.. so here it is for you all to see. :)
Canon Rebel XTi
Canon Portrait Lens 24-105mm
On occasion I'll use something other than that.. but those times are so few they're not even worth mentioning.... :)

"Sally is annoyingly stunning, annoyingly lovely, and annoyingly brilliant at photography. She's such an inspiration to so many - me included. If I had 1/100th of her talent, I'd be ecstatic.
You're fantastic, Sally, keep it up!"

"Sally is one of the very first friends I had on flickr..
She is a wonderful,fun loving,deep, kiddish, and amazing person to talk to and to be there for you and help you.. and thats all besides the talent she has and the potentials as she is young in age.. and she has all the time to lean more and produce more..
She excels in self portraits and she is her own model :)
I'm one of the people who await her photography and was never disappointed by anything she made.. and I'm glad to have her as a friend and .. Sally I wish you all the luck and success with everything you do because you totally deserve it..
Keep up and keep shooting.."

"This girl is awesome! I'm always amazed when I see new photos from her, particularly self-portraits. Even in the photos, she says, aren't very good you can see the natural talent. I love her poses and the moods and colors she puts in her shots... They always capture such a beautiful image.
You totally rock!! Can't wait to see more!"
September 24th, 2007
"Sally is an excellent photographer.... no matter what she says! =)
It's always fun to see what she'll come up with next. She has a definite God given talent for photography! She inspires me!"

Aaron Frost Photography says:
"Sally has a definate promise to be a great portrait photographer. Her self-portrait ideas are always exiting and exelent no matter how non-creative she may think they are. She was one of the friends that got me started on photography and is a great encouragement on flickr."
August 23rd, 2007
"After viewing many of Sally's photos, I am continually impressed at the new ideas she comes up with. Although modest and new to photography, I believe she was born with a real talent and an eye for good compositions. I always look forward to her new photos and look forward to seeing her talents grow. Well worth adding as one of your contacts, you won't be disappointed. All the best my friend, and keep up the great work!"

Allyn (allynedmonds.com) says:
"Sally is a very talented and special friend. Her self portraits are wonderful and I sign on to Flickr hoping that she has posted yet another portrait for us to admire. She's fairly new at photography, but with what she has shown so far, there's no doubt we'll be hearing a lot more about her.
Add her as a contact now so you don't miss anything that's coming from her in the future.
Keep up the good work my dear friend! =)"
