Photography Challenge.

I am a part of a forum where we have a photographers group - lovely group of women! They've had several challenges in the past, including the self portraits that I know I mentioned in here... that I never did. You know I am lazy, and I don't want to straighten my hair, pluck my eyebrows etc, unless of course I have to. So there was a new challenge to use our kit lens that came with our camera, or our most hated lens. I actually did the challenge. I know it's ok to be proud of me, because I am proud too ;).

I took a picture of a mushroom. A huge one! That is growing in our yard by our front door. Our front yard looks.... very over grown and ugly. It needs to be mowed ;). Anyways... here is my picture of the mushroom.

About Me

My name is Melissa Schilling. I am married to my wonderful husband Dane who I have been with for 10 years. We have toddler twin babies Drake and Kera. I started this blog in hopes to one day be a photographer. As for right now my husband and I are using photography as a hobby we can do together. We are starting the 365 day project August 1, 2009. I can't wait to start to learn more and more about my camera. I look forward to any feedback. I will be mostly focusing on people subjects, because that is what I am interested in. However there may be a few other types of photography in the mix.

Thanks for looking at my photo blog, please follow me if you are interested in seeing all of my work, and where this takes me in the future.
