Meet Tammy

I’d like to introduce you to a new contributing partner here at Sharing Closet Space. After much debate, B and I decided our family could use a new member. So, without further adieu, meet Tammy…

No, we did not get another puppy. Tammy is my brand-new Canon Rebel T3! Ever since photojournalism in high school, I’ve been drooling over the though of one day owning a digital SLR. However, being a broke high school/college student, that dream never became a reality… until TODAY! As a grown-up with a grown-up job, I finally found myself in the position where spending $$$ on a new toy didn’t seem totally irresponsible (just a little irresponsible). Plus, I went to Sam’s Club, where I got the body of the camera, 2 lenses, a camera bag, and a memory card all for the standard price of just the camera body.

So, here she is! Say good-bye to pictures of this quality…

T3 Camera became T-Cam which became Tam which became Tammy

And hello to pictures of this quality!

I’ve been playing all day, and having a blast.

I also bought a Groupon for a class at Freeland Photography in Lee’s Summit. I’ll be going June 8th to a 4-hour class, where I’ll learn about f-stops and shutter speeds, then go on a photo shoot with guidance from professional photographers. (The Groupon deal was awesome–$59 for what is usually a $450 class!!)
