Wishful Thinking

I have nothing coming up anytime soon to warrant a wish list, but I'm okay with that. This is more of a wish thing anyway. I've been thinking for awhile how badly I'd like to get a nice camera. Mostly because I love nice pictures. And the creative bug in me just wants to be able to recreate stuff like that so badly!

Canon Digital Rebel XSI 12MP Digital SLR Camera
Canon Digital Rebel - one of many that is peaking my interest.
I've always used point-and-shoot Canon cameras in the past, and I love them. But I feel like they're only really good for a "take a picture of some girls at a party and load it onto facebook" instead of "take a picture that looks like art and that you want to show off." Yes I want to take photos that look like art.

Why would I ever consider doing this? Well I don't have kids (unless you count Ella) so that's not the answer. I guess I'd just love to be able to break out a camera and get a nice quality image. Plus, think about it. Every good blog out there has good pictures. People like good pictures and crappy ones just don't always win in the grand scheme of things.

I'd love to take a few photography classes at some local places here in town. I always love taking a class and learning a new thing - what a great way to expand your horizons. And I would love to take pictures for people for a little income on the side.  I can just see myself as a photographer!

So what do you think? Should I do it?

Umm yes. You should definitely be a photographer--it's so much less work than cake making :)
