Project One - Photography

One of the projects I wanted to pick up was photography.  Capturing better pictures of my daughter is motivating me to pick up this new hobby.  I was just using my cell phone since it was always close when I saw her doing something photo worthy.  The pictures from my previous iphone and my android aren't bad but I wanted something better.  My daughter is smack dab in the middle of toddler-hood and I didn't want to loose the chance to capture these moments while she's still young.  The fist thing I had to do was get a better camera.  Luckily, my BIL jumped in and saved us from spending a lot of money.  Fortunately, he is a photography buff and just upgraded.  So we got the hand me down.  It's actually a really nice camera.  I'm now the proud owner of a Canon EOS 350D.

Today, my sister and I brought the babies to Balboa Park at the playground there.  It's located near the Reuben H. Science Center.  There are two separate play areas  with the soft matting underneath.  It's surrounded by picnic tables and a large grass areas.  There are also a number of sand pits.  I haven't taken a photography class yet but I broke out my canon to just mess around.  I think I took over 120 pictures and I only found less then 5 shots that are pretty good.

Not too bad for my first time. I'm still looking for a good photography class that's still cost effective.  Anyone know one located in San Diego?

    I am interested in photography too..for the same reason to snap pics of my kids! I have a Canon Rebel XS DSLR and take a million pics, for thos few good ones too! A photography class/workshop would be so awesome..Im dying to go to the one Blue Lilly puts on (they are in Temecula and travel around giving a beginners workshop for around $165). I know that is pretty close to SD, so maybe they do them there more often (?). Here is the link to their workshop page -

    Good luck!
