I'm definitely an amateur photographer, but I'm trying to become better at it. I've loved photography forever and have been annoying friends and family with my camera for decades!! :-D

In March of 2007 I bought my first dSLR - a Canon XTi and in July of 2008 I got a 40D. Eventually I would like to get a 5D mkIII, but for now that is out of reach.

Update 07/09/2009 - Trying to learn more about lighting and the more technical aspects of photography, but it's a struggle! I'm so glad to have a great group of friends here on flickr to support my attempts at these things!! <3

Update 10/30/2009 - Sooo I've had a dry spell in photography creativity and motivation. One of the things I've recently started doing is paring down the number of groups I belong to (was up to 650+). I feel like I need to simplify both my life and my flickr experience. Please don't take offense if I've removed myself from your group, it's nothing personal at all!

    "Michelle has to be one of the nicest and coolest photographers I know. She is not only laid back, but has one hell of an eye for good compositions. It is always fun to go shooting with Michelle, as we both learn so much from eachother. I haven't been doing this very long, but the one thing I've learned is that putting several minds together makes better images. I thank Michelle for being not only a great friend, but for being a great inspiration behind the camera!"

    "I love looking at Michelle's photostream. She is far from an amateur. She has a great eye for taking interesting, breathtaking photos. Her composition is always wonderful. All the photos she adds to flickr are practically Explore worthy. I may show her a tad of favoritism, since we both have the same car, and anyone that has a VW GTI is ok in my book. Regardless, keep up the great work and continue impressing us with your great work!!"
