My early years (long ago) were Black & White, spending time in the darkroom, learning the basics of shooting, developing & printing with a little help from my friends.
Went digital about around 2005 with a D70. Went out shooting & experimenting. Joined a local camera club a year later & started improving with feedback from a critique group.
Major frustrations are lighting & printing. Reading is slow, so plan to take courses to fix this issue. “Show me” usually works best for me.
Ultimate goal – produce that one masterpiece. Then I’ll go about making a second one.
In the meantime, I’ve taken up this 365 Challenge – take a picture a day and post it. A personal challenge inspired by a couple of folks at my camera club, it’s designed to get me out and shooting.
