I started my love of photography at an early age with a Polaroid camera. I had various point and shoot cameras as well. But the elusive SLR camera looked too complicated to ever get the hang of it. All those numbers and buttons and markings. What did they all do?
In 2002, I purchased my first SLR Camera Canon Rebel) and the fun began. I learned about F-stops (aperture), shutter speeds, and ISO/ASA (film speed). I learned to take my SLR off the auto modes and to shoot manually. I noted my camera settings in a notebook and reviewed my prints and learned how to make adjustments and get the correct exposure. I switched from Canon to Nikon and shot film for two years. In 2004, I got my first DSLR and bring able to instantly review my images was a game changer. I could on the fly make adjustments and be creative.
Photography has allowed me to travel, to witness events that I never imagined and to develop my creative eye. Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share images with you.
