Nathan woke up from his nap and much to his surprise (yeah right) I greeted him with my camera. I have been wanting to take some pictures of him in his crib before he totally outgrows it! I am trying to figure out when and where the lighting is the best in my house.
Just practicing my photography and trying to get better – taking tons and tons of photos lately – figuring out what works and what doesn’t – what I like and what I don’t like. It is a lot of work but I really love it.
I have always had a love for photography – have always been into it. I remember asking for a camera when I was really young and being the photographer for our family.
I remember that my grandpa had an old slr and I was fascinated with it. He had boxes and boxes of slides at his house from all of their trips and I remember wanting to look at them every time we went over there. I can remember viewing those slides down in their basement on an old slide projector – picture after picture after picture.
So, needless to say, I have this desire to be better and to improve my photography skills. I have always been a perfectionist and have always felt like I need to do things above and beyond – to not just be good, but great. I am learning each and every day. I know I have a long way to go and that it is a process that can only come with time. It is so rewarding though! I love loading a bunch of photos onto my computer and going through each of them, looking for that “one” that speaks to me.
I am going to be posting my photos more – trying to build up a portfolio, and just trying to capture more great photos. Constructive criticism, tips, etc. are always greatly appreciated. I love feedback and I love to hear from you!
