About Me

My name is Christy VanderWall and I am a child of God, wife to Paul and mom to Regan and Sage. Prior to having children, I spent 10 years in the engineering and database development fields. During that time, my husband and I also acted as general contractors and spent countless hours building three houses.

In 2007, I bought my first DSLR and also discovered digital scrapbooking. In my arsenal then were a Nikon D50 and Photoshop Elements 2.0. Since then, I have added a Nikon D90, PSE 6.0 and Photoshop CS3 to my tool bag. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning everything I can about both photography and photoshop. One of my favorite things about these subjects is that no matter how much you learn, there is always a new challenge to tackle!

Through this blog, I plan to share some of the things I have learned about Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom and photography. I also expect to be challenged and stretched by you, the readers. My hope is that it will be a source of learning and inspiration for each of us.

I have many ideas about where this journey may take me, so I hope you stick around for a while, as I slowly and prayerfully take each step forward.
