Photography is my Passion
I've been putting this post off for a few days now. I'm not really sure why. I wanted to get this posted January 1st, but I didn't want to flood your reading list with cliches or a list of silly resolutions I know I'll never keep.
I'm not really a new year's resolution kind of gal. So, it took some time to think about what to write. I really want to start the year off great. A great post. A great title. And great pictures.
But sadly, this post is far from greatness....the inspiration to write is more like smoldering coals instead of a raging fire (sad day - which it has been quite gloomy round these parts; cold weather, rainy, cloudy - perfect definition of sad & depressing).
This may just be a rambling post, so if you want to stop reading now I won't blame you. You won't hurt my feelings.
However, my passion for photography is burning bright like the sun!! :) Hello, Mr. Sun!
After hearing people rave about this project back in December, I decided to try it myself. I started Project 365 on January 1st, and I am having so much fun with this while perfecting my amateur picture taking skills. **See new page above with each picture I've taken!
Professional photography has always been a dream of mine, but there's still SO much I need to learn about this great art before I go pro: there's lighting, balance, symmetry, pattern, texture, tone, depth of field, lines and much more!
Believe it or not, my first camera was a pink Concord 110. My mom spent $3 on it at a silent auction. That was three dollars well spent. :) Thanks Mom!
I have quite a few photography sites that I go to frequently that I like, admire, and learn from. They are a constant source of motivation.
We'll keep each other accountable throughout the year. What do you say?!
