My name is Valerie. I'm a self-taught amateur photographer and I write photography articles on Hubpages. I also sell stock photos. I shoot with a basic entry-level Canon 1100D DSLR and the kit lenses that came with it, one is a 18-55mm wide angle IS zoom and the other is a 55-250mm IS zoom. It's not much but it's good enough to learn on and produces much better results than a plain old point-and-shoot digital camera.
This is my blog where I post photos I have taken to challenge myself as a photographer by taking up the the various suggestions I have made in my most successful photography article, 'Ideas for Photography'.
