I have been interested in photography since I was in high school, but was not fortunate enough to take photography classes then. That hasn't kept me from working hard with my photo compositions. In 2000 to 2001, I borrowed my friend's SLR Film and went to the motocross tracks. I made friends with the riders and they shared constructive criticism, They were in fact my photography teachers. I would apply their feedback to my next roll of shots. I have received many compliments in the years since with my point and shoot, and feel that it is high time that I graduate to the SLR. I have always dreamed of learning to shoot the SLR.
As an avid viewer of Art Wolf Travels to the edge, I try to implement some of the tips he shares in his shows. Nature, city scapes, motocross, and light houses are my favorites. I am looking forward to getting some great shots of small aircraft practicing touch and go.
I plan to purchase my first SLR camera in the next few weeks. I have been reading the books on photography trying to learn the lingo, but it seems like it is all way over my head - technically. My best learning style is to have hands on learning/teaching. Books can't answer questions like "What did I do wrong there?" I was talking with a coworker about this and she recommended your site to me. I, in turn have recommended your site to another coworker and to my niece, who both already own their cameras and are in the same learning situation as I am in.
Hello, my name is T. Okay, it's not really, but that is what I prefer to go by. I have worked in the semiconductor industry for over 11 years.
I have enjoyed everyone I have met. The ladies have been so willing to share their knowledge I truly feel welcome and amung friends.
