More photography! This will have to be it for a while; I need to get back to art. April 12th art show deadline looming, tick tock! It won't be easy to put the camera down. I just bought a new 40mm lens to replace the 55mm lens that wore out some time ago and has been sitting in drawer.
Confession, I hardly know anything about the workings of a camera. F stops, I Google them, think I understand what it's all about, then forget everything a day later. My camera is a second hand Canon 20D from 2005, a dinosaur. I shoot with a $100 prime lens. It has no zoom but does auto focus. I primarily use Windows Photo Gallery for photo editing. You don't need high end cameras or much photo editing knowledge to enjoy photography.
I believe photography is mostly about the person holding the camera. Your photos are a reflection of you, so don't try to be like anyone else. Now, have a little fun and pick up a camera today.
My best tips: Photograph in natural light. Photo editing, use the crop feature often!
The book I made of our family vacation turned out great. ( made online, Mpix)
I also ordered two photos from Nations Photo Lab.
These two photos were printed on alligator board and metallic paper.
A great day is always a day when you create something!
