I have been into photograpy for about seventeen years. I have taken a few community classes and one college course using film photograpy. I have always had a pretty nice camera, but until recently I generally used only the auto options. As a mother I enjoy capturing my family, but they are not always as patient as I would like. Recently I have gone to more of the nature aspect and have found that I really enjoy taking pictures where I can capture the beauty in the simple things around me. I have a pretty busy schedule and don't have as much time to devote to my hobbies, but I am finding the more I bring my camera on the go with me, the more I see varring oppurtunities to capture images that I would have missed.
Although I am pretty self critical, I think if I were honestly judging my photography skills based on eye and creative skill, I'd imagine I fall into the average or advvanced catagory. I am sure there are aspects of photograpy that I would be concidered more of a novice, but I do have a basic knowledge of composition, lighting and skills that produce a good photograph. However, working with programs that edit or inhance digital photograpy I would be concidered a novice.
Noice, all the way! I have played around a little, but by no means do I know what I am doing or am anywhere near comfortable in how to organize my photos for easier access.
I am new to PS and Lr. I have a passion for photograpy. I'm a "hands-on" type of learner. Although I have access to tools to improve my work, I'm new to editing digital photograpy. I enjoy creative work of others & would love to improve my skills.
