I check out Shutter Sisters each morning for a little photographic inspiration. One photo is selected each day from their flikr pool to be the highlighted "daily click". Today it was one of mine with the above shot, titled Dusk. I can't tell you how fantastic it makes me feel to be recognized for this new love of mine, taking pictures! I've always loved photography, but am completely self-taught and wing it most of the time. In the past, most of my photos revolved around children, but I've been branching out to nature and stills. Whenever a great shot happens, I tend to think it's just luck. My confidence is growing, as more people are enjoying what my little camera and I are producing. Blogging has motivated me to use my camera every day... so many bloggable moments and I don't want to miss out on capturing things to share visually. My introduction to flikr (thanks to great friend, Pat!) has been the most exciting part of my new hobby. How fun to share how you see your world, with others...from all over the world. I had this huge and out-dated clunker of a digital camera up until two months ago...then I bought a new one (sony cyber-shot 7.2) with prize money from the Sew Green Contest, and it's become one of my best friends! Here are a few of my favorite shots in the last week:
I'd love to hear about your relationship with your camera and what role photography plays in your life.
