Through My Lens, You’ll Become a Part of History

February 2, 2010


I’ve always considered myself an amateur photographer. Good enough that people comment favorably on my pics but with no formal training, everything I shoot is based on instinct. To be honest I have no clue how my Nikon camera works. I’ve learned to experiment with the settings until I’m satisfied with the desired effect. I’ve been in a darkroom exactly five times, having developed some film and watching friends develop others. To say that I’m curious about using my lens as an instrument is an understatement. This is an interest that I’ve had for a very long time.

Sooo… I’ve finally signed up for an actual photography class which starts pretty soon!  I’m prepared to be all over the city with various cameras in tow figuring out the mechanics of shutter speeds, etc. Knowing me, the whole thing might go in one ear and out the other and I’ll be using instinct once again.

Naturally, I’ve been inspired by pretty pictures of cameras and girls with cameras. These are some that are in constant rotation right now.
