To further my interest in photography and get out more to do it. Also to learn and to teach.
Amature, only because I don't this for money. I want it to be fun and money gets in the way.
To help those new to photography learn and practice the basic. To learn from others to further my own creative vision.
20+ years Film, 35mm, 120mm and 4x5. Digital SLR and P/S.
Animals of all kinds, landscapes particularly gardens, some macro, some architecture, love churches, the occasional still life and people when I have to.
A truly great group of people with more to learn from. Experience abounds in this group.
Your words from the class Saturday stay with me in learning. I took a picture at Bush Park last Sunday and came home and cropped it to make it the way I wanted. It reminded me of your comment to know what you wanted from the picture. So now I'm going to pay more attention to what I see and what I want to see & use the right lens also to help zoom in on things when I need to. Thank you for all the information that is still coming to me.
Thank you for the class today. This concept has been explained to me so many times, and is seems to be difficult for me to grasp, but after the class today, I do believe I am beginning to understand it better. I'm embrassing your concept of full manual for awhile and I did go out in my yard today and worked on different settings and it was fun and I could see the results and further understand the relationship between aperture, shutter speed & ISO. I will keep practicing.
Jim, what was the name of that reflection program you talked about at the meeting?
Jim, I want to thank you again for the kind words! =)
Hi Jim - got your message about the Eastern Oregon reminders. Really looking forward to this trip! See you in the morning.
Hi Jim, Members have mentioned a good book about Exposure that is in our library. I looked and could not locate it. Maybe we could connect at wed. meeting and talk about which book they are talking about.Thanks, Janeen
