Hi! I’m Debbi and I’m very glad you have decided to check out my PhotogBlog. The purpose of this blog is to post some of my most recent photos and keep a journal of my hobby, as I grow and learn.
I am a wife, mother, daughter, friend. I have a motivational weight loss ministry, am the author of No More Weighting – Thought for the Week (52 Weekly Devotions of Motivational Weight Loss Tips) and function as the Children’s Ministry Director of my church. I love the Lord, Jesus, and admittedly acknowledge that without Him, I am nothing! Recently, I’ve added Photographer to my repertoire and must admit, I’m having so much fun with this newfound hobby!
I have enjoyed taking pictures all of my life and have many boxes, photo albums and now, hard drives to prove it. But it had always been just quick snapshots of family or events with no artistic purpose. Not until recently has there been an interest in going beyond “snapping pictures” and into the art of photography. It runs in my family…both my mom and dad are WONDERFUL photographers and my grandmother was a semi-pro photographer in her day. I guess you could say that I’m following in their footsteps with this newfound interest. Those are big shoes to fill, but with God’s grace and help, I am taking the steps!
In September of 2009, my dad and mom blessed me with my first DSLR – a Canon Rebel T1i and a couple of lenses. Since that time I’ve had a wonderful time learning and playing with my new toy. I’ve found that I have been bit! Bit
by the shutter bug, that is, and I am really enjoying it.
So, as I continue to learn and play, I’ve decided to post my experiences on this site. Be patient with me and if you have any tips, constructive comments, etc. to share, I’m receptive of them.
These are a few of my first shots from the past few months of PhotoFrenzies. My best friend, or my husband and I do our best to go out every couple of weeks to practice. What a FUN hobby I’ve been blessed with and what FUN I have sharing it with my family and friends.
Let Your Light Shine,
