It's a picture taking kind of day...

Well, really every day in my world is a picture taking kind of day! But today is a beautiful early spring Saturday here in Boston and it is about time my baby (seen above) and me get outdoors! Ever since I got that beauty back in November I have been in love with it! And I have been waiting for the warmer weather to do more outside with it. Our surroundings are still not too pretty quite yet but it is OK. My finger is twitching with anticipation! And I really want to develop my skills. I have LOTS to learn about using a dSLR....LOTS. But I am ready. I want to take my photography to the next level. And I will be starting classes at my local Ritz Camera soon, too. I have always loved taking pictures, and I have gotten to the point where I do really well with my point and shoot. I get compliments on my photos all the time, and people assume I am already using a dSLR and Photoshopping my photos. I don't even have Photoshop! I hardly ever use the editing functions in iPhoto! I just really want to take things up a notch. Any hints or tips to share???
