Photographic Interests?

Anything! I enjoy cemetery and architectural photography but am interested in all types including portrait, landscape, macro, etc. I am especially interested in animal/pet photography as I attend, participate, assist and exhibit in American Kennel Club and United Kennel Club dog shows. I want to be able to capture these wonderful animals at their best; whether posed or candid. Of course I'm interested in ALL pets and other animals. I hope that maybe there is someone out there who can help me with this in particular. I currently assist specifically with the following breeds: Great Dane, Chinese Crested and Alaskan Klee Kai, but I LOVE them ALL! Yeah, I'm a sucker!

Photographic skill level (Beginner, Novice, Moderate, Advanced, Guru)


Gear that you use? Feel free to list the cameras, lenses and other accessories that you find to be indispensable.

I currently have a Canon EOS Rebel XSi 450D. I also have a Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 lens. (Whatever all that means! Yes I need help!)

What skills would you like to develop further? For example: Action, Portraiture, Macro, Photoshop.Lightroom/Post-Processing Skills, etc...

Action, Portraiture, Macro, and ESPECIALLY pet/animal photography. I'm open to all areas and really like unique and odd photo ideas. I unfortunately only have GIMP and Picasa 3 as editing software as I can't afford Photoshop at this time.

Do you have skills that you are willing to share with others to help them improver their photography? If so, what skills would you be willing to be a mentor for other members?

I'm not sure what I can offer anyone, but I definitely would share all that I know and how I do what I do!


Hello! I'm Tara and I live in the downtown Columbia area. I have been interested in photography for some time now and want to learn how to use my 35mm digital wonder correctly! Right now, I just do a lot of point and shoot in the auto mode.
