As I mentioned in the previous post, the art world and I have been pretty much at opposite ends of the spectrum. Then I have my daughter take up the interest, which in turn, makes me take up the interest.
And then about 2 years ago I get this great Cannon digital camera, and about that same time I get introduced to the world of blogging, where there is just an insane amount of info and examples of great photography.
I'm like a camera nut now. I take it almost everywhere. If I see something that has the slightest chance of being an interesting picture, I shoot that baby. The problem is this.
Let's say my camera can perform 40 different functions. For the first year, I would use 2.
1) Turn it on.
2) Take a picture.
After checking out all these different sites with crazy good photography, a year later I got the camera manual out and started reading. WOW! It can do that? And that?
I love checking out great pictures now. I think its because I appreciate now, how good these photographers really are.
Of the numerous photo blog sites that are out there, this is the one I go to everyday. Check out the post for Tues, Nov 17th, and tell me just how cool is that photo she has there. The photo in the Nov 15th post is beautiful and the 13th, well, you get the idea.
