My first paid gig!

Sarah before the gameI have to share my excitement about recently getting hired as a second shooter for weddings. I can't wait to shoot with my new boss/ co-worker and learn as much as I can from her. Also for Easter/ graduation (I'm done with PT school YAY!), I got a ton of photography stuff. Here is what I got:
Lightroom
Lightroom for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby
5 in 1 reflector kit with stand
6 in 1 reflector kit from Westcott
The Adobe Photoshop CS3 book for digital photographers by Scott Kelby
The Moment it Clicks by Joe McNally
The Complete Guide to Photoshop's Most Powerful Feature: Layers by Matt Kloskowski
My next issues of Digital Scrapbooking
And Sean found another flash from Craig's list he's going to buy us

Bottom line...I have a crap ton of reading/ experimenting/ learning to do! I can't wait to put all this stuff to good use! As I finish books and use my new gear I'll post reviews. Perhaps reviews from a newbie will be helpful to other newbies rather than getting reviews from the greats. Just because they're so good they might forget what it was like struggling just to remember to take your lens cap off. hehehe

Yay! That's great news! I can't wait to see how it goes for ya.

And that's quite a haul in gear. Color me jealous. Here I was all excited because I got a new Lens Pen and Rocket Blower... =P

HAHAHAHA. I love our rocket blower. Maybe a little too much...Sean always tells me to stop playing with it :0)
