My new website!


My Website

Just in case you found yourself on my blog and would like to take a look at my website. http://www.oberg-photography.com

New Year- New Dreams- New Beginnings

A little history- Photography has long been a passion of mine... it just seemed to have gotten lost for a while. My husband suggested that I begin classes because he knew how much I loved photography. I had shown him all the old pictures from the days when I had the dark room. He knew how much I missed it. But SO much has changed since the days of enlargers and chemicals. So- early in 2009 I began taking photography classes and LOVING them.
I'm not sure how thrilled the rest of my family is about it now though. They have grown tired of being my models. Sorry! ;)
Things have sort of started rolling from there. People have liked the pictures I have taken and actually started paying for them!
I know I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn. I am constantly practicing and trying out new things that I have read about or seen.

Reason for the Blog-
I want to start a journal of my photographic journey. I want to watch and hopefully see myself grow as a photographer.

More pictures of the girls

I can't decide which of these looks better. I like the first one because it looks like it is the evening (it was.) And I like the way it looks with the light in the background. But I like the 2nd one because it shows Grace's face better. so I need opinions. Which do you like best?

The next one is straight out of the camera... no editing.

And here is Kaleigh!

Baby Scrapbooking and Photoshop in general

I have been working on Gracie's baby book, for ... I'm not sure how long now. But I keep getting getting side tracked. I am no expert in Photoshop so It takes me FOREVER to try and figure out how to do something. I will spend days trying to do 1 simple thing... forgetting about the project that I am working on to begin with. It has been a long time since I completed a page, so I thought I'd post it.

More pictures! These were taken in the Woodlands on Mother's Day. Michael didn't realize I was taking his picture (and wasn't too happy later when he found out.) I love the way they turned out... But then, I am biased on the subject too. = ) I love you Michael!

LOVING the photography class!

I just started my new photography class. I am SO LOVING it! We have learned about f-stops and shutter speed. My favorite is working with the depth of field.

SO much fun!

I started my photography class and I am loving it. We have learned about fstops and shutter speeds. I LOVE using the depth of field.

Photoshop projects

Here are a few of the pages that I have been working on for Gracie's baby book. I feel like I am slowing getting the hang of Photoshop, but my problem is the layout of the pages. I am artistically challenged... lol. Anyway.. here they are, please give me honest opinions, before I go spend $50. on a crappy baby book. = )

Changing Plans

I had been planning on going back to college this summer to work on my master's degree. I was really excited about it. Apparently though- James had some concerns about the financial aspect of us both working on our masters at the same time. I guess he was afraid to tell me, because I was so excited about it. So, this weekend he mustered up all his courage and broached the subject. He must have put a lot of thought into it because he had a counter offer all ready for me.

He knows that I have always wanted to get into photography and that I have been toying around with my photoshop a lot lately. SO- he suggested that we invest in a good SLR camera and I take some photography classes.
I am SO excited about this. I can't wait to get started!

I still plan to go back for my masters, but it can wait another year. = )

So... I have no idea what I am going to blog about... but I am going to give this a try. Maybe it will just be a good excuse to show off pictures of my kids. = ) And speaking of pictures of my kids...
