Last fall I had an awakening ...stop walking around with your phone taking pictures like you are an all star photographer and DO THE REAL THING! An ok from my husband to buy my own Christmas present led to the purchase of a Nikon D3400 DSLR bundle with camera body, 2 lenses, camera bag, tripod, and much much more. We were both excited when the box arrived. He was so excited he drove the unopened box to my job and at lunch when I got in the car he plopped this gigantic box on my lap. "Open it! Open it!!" was easier said than done being crammed in the passenger seat of a Toyota Corolla with a humongous box on your lap. That night I couldn't wait to get home and roam around snapping pics. That all came to a screeching halt when I realized I had no idea how to use the thing. So many functions, options, settings. Pretty sure I started crying and felt like maybe iPhone photography wasn't such a stupid thing after all. A ton of Pinterest research on using a DSLR camera and the cameras owners manual quickly developed me into a novice auto setting photographer. More research uncovered that DSLR photography and AUTO=NO GO!!!! Pretty much teaching myself by reading blogs and just using the camera constantly I have graduated to manual mode and have captured some pretty amazing shots. Once the ins and outs of my camera were discovered and the editing software was no longer a foreign language to me I was ready to take the plunge into the world of Photography Business Ownership! Figuring out a name was quite difficult. I probably wasted the equivalent of 2 to 3 notebooks of paper scribbling ideas combing photography terms with my first name, last name, and combinations of both. Then out of nowhere it came to me...Sandsational Photography!!! Early July 2017 Sandsational Photography became official!!!! A registered business with the state of New Jersey, that you can now utilize for all your photo needs. My next venture is acquiring studio space or transforming one of the 3 spare bedrooms I have into a home studio. I am so exciting to begin this amazing adventure in my life.
