Hi! My name is Tonja (pronounced Tonya). I am from Kansas and I am a stay at home mom of 2 girls ages 2yrs and 2mos. Over the last year I have been learning about photography through trial and error mostly, however, I have also learned about the basics of aperture, ISO, and shutter speed by reading blogs, newsletters, books, etc. in an attempt to learn how to best utilize my camera and lenses as well as natural light. I enjoy portrait photography, both indoors and outdoors, boudoir photography, and macro photography mainly of nature. I will be taking a couple courses on how to identify light sources and how to best utilize those sources as well as a course on studio lighting in the next couple months and am excited to try the things I learn. I look forward to learning new things as well as perfecting some that I have already learned through the use of the site. Here is one of my favorite shots from my most recent boudoir photo shoot that I did for a close friend of mine.
