|Intro:||When I bought my computer it came with a camera and a printer. I never would have dreamed that that little camera would draw me back into an old hobby--photography! I am and will remain a good amateur and I'm frankly amazed at the results that I get with such a limited little, inexpensive camera, especially when I see the "stacks" of expensive equipment and cameras that many member own and use.|
My strength is intuition and a good eye. I want to continue to learn technically, yet I sort of "space out" with f-stops, etc. Like most things artistic, including my work as a classical singer, I learn mostly by doing and it seems there's plenty to do in learning how to use various types of photoshop programs, which is mostly fun, though I do get frustrated at times.
I'm very open to learning and suggestions and would prefer constructive suggestions to gushing praise, though none of us mind a little of that at times.
I decided to let go of points. If I like your photos I usually write a little more than many people, usually from an aesthetic point of view.
Re receiving technical support, I will either ask for clarification if I don't understand or space out and tell you, if I don't understand. Please don't be offended by that, as I said earlier, I'm not that technical a photographer.
What moves me about photography is how a person shows their vision or what they see and to me that isn't always a question of technique. If you've gotten this far, congratulations! Hope I haven't bored you. Happy shootin'!
This is me . . . for now, i.e., subject to change and learning.
