Photography is my new baby. I’m just fumbling my way through this the same way that I did with each of my children – equal parts research and closing my eyes and jumping. I’m genuinely hoping to see some real strides in my skill level over time, which is why I am beginning this blog now. I can tell you that, as of today, I am an amateur in the truest sense of the word. I am overwhelmed by the enormity of information that there is to digest and understand. Lighting, metering, aperture, lenses, post processing … Photoshop alone might take me 3 years to figure out.
I am also excited. It will be a long time before I can afford to supplement my meagre set up with some new and vital gear. It will possibly be years before I’ve learned to focus sharply in quickly changing situations. But I’m going to have fun trying.
