About Marsha

I have loved photography for over 30 years. My first “real” camera as an adult was a Minolta XG7 and I thought I was in heaven! Fifteen years later, I bought my first autofocus Canon and then digital came on the scene. My first digital camera was a $500 3mp Kodak and, again, I thought I was in heaven. Then came my Canon EOS 10D and now my Canon EOS 50D.  I’m still in heaven. Now I couple my love of photography with my love of multimedia and graphic design (i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash and Premiere).  I am a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals and have attended the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s Forensic Digital Imaging Training.

Evolution of my Passion

  1. I can’t wait to get a digital camera. Much later I plan to get a DSLR camera. I’m using a cell phone and the picture quality just cannot compare to an actual good camera. Can’t wait!

    • I have a Canon EOS 50D which is the second Canon EOS that I’ve bought, my first was a 10D. I still use both of them depending on what I’m doing (like riding on the back of our motorcycle, that means take my old one). The cost for these digital SLRs have definitely come down, I paid $1500 for the body alone when the 10D came out about ten years ago, but less than that for the whole kit (lens included) when I bought the 50D. The quality of the cameras on phones (except for my cheap phone’s camera) has gone up so much though that it looks like it works well for what you do. Your pictures look good.

  2. So Marsha, you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers, sometimes known as The Spikey’s…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…

    • Just goes to show you how small the world actually is. My grandmother lived in Overland for many, many years. Did you go to Northwest Plaza Mall? It was the “in” thing back in the 70s.

      • Oh my gosh yes – Northwest Plaza Mall was definitely the place to go. I worked in the contracts department for McDonnell Douglas and on Saturday we always ate chocolate chip pancakes at Perkins on the Rock Road. 🙂

  3. My first digital was a kodak too.. a 3.2 mp.. it took some of the best photos. I still have it in the cupboard. Couldn’t bring myself to part with it.. Now I’ve upgraded to a Nikon D610 but will always have a soft spot for my Kodak 🙂
