My name is Amy - welcome to my page! I go by tons of nicknames, so call me what you'd like. I've been here almost 2 years now... previously made a lot of photomanipulation and pixels, but the book has closed and i'm at the end of the road as of now. don't know when i'll pick photomanip/pixeling back up, if ever, but just living life as it comes right now. (: I love talking and meeting new friends so don't ever hesitate to drop me a note!

things that make me smile -
northern lights, muddy pickup trucks, music, stars, clouds, tea, oreos, family & friends, baking, random singing, the ocean, and fishing with a good friend.

i also like food, food, and well, food. HEH HEH
hi guys!!!! :heart: :hug: i've missed everyone tons! you've all improved like leaps and bounds and when i logged on i nearly fell out of my chair! also -my goodness where has summer gone!!! been an amazing one for sure! i hope you're having great summers as well (: 

anyways i'm looking for some help in the camera/photography area. i've dabbled with photography for a while now, and am really becoming connected to it and would like to start taking it more seriously. i'd like to do my own senior pictures (my mom would be taking them) but i don't have like 5% knowledge concerning cameras and that. I'm also looking for a good camera that can take good macros and close ups of wildlife (such as birds.) There's a Canon Powershot S3IS lying around the house but i wasn't sure if I should go with that, a camera on the craigslist, or another? The one on the craigslist is a Canon Rebel EOS…
it's listed at $160. They also has a 300mm fixed focus lens for an extra $45. 

What would you personally do? If you'd go with neither of the above, what cameras do you recommend that are relatively inexpensive?  

+ also, any portrait tips/tutorials in general are greatly appreciated. (lighting, positioning, clothes, ideas, etc.) I've never done portraits so i'm in an entire new boat! Looking forward to this greatly though!  

thank you so so much everyone! i appreciate any related tidbit very much! also, if you have any fun senior picture stories feel free to add those to hehe! ♥
