I still remember the first picture that I ever took on a digital camera. It was my freshman year, the first time my mother ever owned a digital camera, and I was lying on the trampoline looking up into the sky. As I lay there a wisp of cloud moved behind this beautiful oak we had next to our house and it looked as if the tree was alight with a white flame. It was fantastic. The sky was so blue, and this fire-cloud was the only cloud in the sky. I wish that I could find this picture but I believe it was lost when my mom's computer got a nasty virus. But ever since then I've greatly enjoyed taking photography, mostly nature and architecture. I'm horrible at photographing people, I don't know why. No, I take that back... I have a hard time photographing anything that isn't stationary.
It's something that I really enjoy, it's very relaxing. I've never taken any classes for photography, have never thought of it becoming a career path, just a hobby... and if I became the next Ansel Adams on the way, well then so be it. Just kidding. I actually don't even own my own camera yet, I'm hoping to save up my allowance to get the Canon EOS Rebel T3i. -drools-. But why spend $600+ dollars on something that I don't intend to reap a benefit from, minus some perty pictures to grace our desktop. As you can see I'm locked into this circular thinking. Lol. So for now my mom has graciously allowed me to borrow her Nikon to take pictures here and there. So long as when ever there is a family gathering, I take lots of pictures for her.
But, alas, I have picked up many different hobbies over the years and my husband, my dear beloved husband, just wishes that I'd stick to one and make something out of it. He tells me all the time that I could if I put my mind to it and he'd be willing to support me financially on it but not if I'm not going to give it a half-assed effort. When it comes to wanting this Canon I have a choice; don't get it and continue with allowing this to just be a hobby; or get it with the promise that I'll make something out of it. After all, you don't buy a Ferrari to drive it 15 under the speed limit on the highway right? ...Ahem...those of you in your mid-life crisis. Do NOT buy sports cars and drive them like Oldsmobiles. Just don't.
But I digress. I've decided to start publicizing my photos a little more, just to see the kind of feedback I get about them; room where I can make improvements, etc. I mostly do macros, and like I said, architecture and stuff, sometimes statues. So I'll post some of the pictures on this and then I'll link you lovelies to my Deviantart where you can browse through my gallery. You should also stop by @Kris0logy
