The one with my favorite photo

I've taken lots of photos, and lots of them with a 35 mm. I don't expect alot of people younger than me to really remember what a 35 mm camera was, or even that it used film, but before I bought my Nikon D7000 I had 3 cameras. My first was an Olympus 35 mm. The zoom maybe had 40 mm on it. Impressive for being the middle school age that I was! Then the huge digital wave hit my generation. Even though my 35 mm still works great, I was able to talk my parents into getting me a digital camera for Christmas. Another Olympus. And that takes great photos and also still works! I love Olympus cameras. I received this and had it all through college. And I know what you're thinking, and you're completely right. I'm 25 now, and I just got a digital camera 8 years ago. Don't worry, I'm making up for lost time with more photos!

One foggy spring day in college my roommate and I decided to go to a place called Little Girl's Point in the UP of Michigan. While she walked her dog along a section of beach, I found a family of Canada geese and asked them to stand still for a minute so I could snap a photo or two of them. This is the result:

This photo is completely un-edited. I haven't re-touched it or anything. It was really that foggy that day. And it's one of my most treasured photos. I love it so much it's the face of my new business cards (that should be arriving in the mail tomorrow!)

And then a couple of years ago my then-boyfriend (now husband) purchased a smaller Olympus stylus point and shoot camera for me! All of my Olympus cameras have taken great photos for me, and I will never surrender them.

What is your most treasured photo? Is it of people? Animals? Landscapes? How often do you look at it?

The one at the beginning.

Well hello there!

I'm Katie Canfield! And I'm just starting my very own photography business! I have always loved taking photographs of nature and the outdoors and I love capturing people in their element!

I have recently purchased the Nikon D7000 camera and the Adobe Photoshop CS5 edition and look forward to experimenting with it, and giving you all tips for it! As well as putting on some fantastic finishing touches to photos I'll be uploading for you to check out!

Sit back, relax, and get ready for some fun photos! :)

See you soon!
