I’ve been thinking about this, what I’m doing with a blog and now a website? Good questions, I think. So, I thought I would try to summarize it since I sort of started fresh by moving from Google’s Blogger to my own website (with WordPress).
First things first, I love photography! And I think I know enough to share a few things that might be useful to others. Hopefully I’ll be able to do it in a way that makes sense. Now that doesn’t mean I won’t completely stay away from technical terms, but I’ll try to keep it to a minimum, and explain it in a way that won’t have you wanting to leave.
If you’ve taken time to look through some of my previous posts, you’ll see that I like to take images that may have looked like they were destined for the trash can, and work them into something you’ll want to show off. What that means is that I’ll show you my dirty laundry, and how to clean it up. One of the things that you learn as a photographer (at least as a serious photographer) is to only show your best work. I’m going to break that little unwritten rule to help you!
Another thing you’ll notice is that I love the outdoors and nature photography. The great thing about photography is there are so many different things to take pictures of and so many ways to go about it. While I love photographing nature, I also enjoy taking pictures of my family, and also things with motors that go fast and make a lot of noise! All of these things will be included in an on-going basis, including the good and not so good. Even if a photo can’t be tweaked into a usable snapshot, there may be something that can be learned from it.
I’m going to close this post with an image I made about 8 years ago using a Sony Cybershot DSC F707. I wrote a little about this camera in my last post. This shot is from an early morning photo session at one of my favorite places, Mono Lake’s South Tufa.
