An interest of mine for some time, I shot photos everywhere we went with my husband’s $99 point and shoot Fujifilm camera. It started dying after more than 10,000 photos and about 100 videos.
I prayed for a real camera. (Real = DSLR)
In 2011 I entered a Global Art Show/Contest, on a whim, with three of those 10,000 photos.
…and won Best of Show!
The prize money, combined with birthday money, purchased my first DSLR starter bundle: a Canon Rebel T3i with two lenses.
My photographs help facilitate our call to missions. You can find my growing portfolio at http://ikhadinger.artistwebsites.com.
