This is my first time partcipating in "Foto Friday" hosted by The Household6 Diva. And the entry requirement was a 'sooc' photograph. So here is my entry; completely untouched by photoshop...
|Hard Rock Cafe in Chicago, IL|
I became interested in photography because I wanted to learn to take better (and fewer..ha!) pictures for my scrapbook pages. I wanted the things I captured to hold greater meaning than just a bunch of random snapshots.
I began to take my smaller (less fancy) beginner camera off of it's automatic settings and play/fiddle with all the options. And I found that taking pictures became a whole lot more fun! I could 'create' and use the camera as a tool, rather than be a slave to it. And I started to see some results! Now my appetite for photography has grown (and continues to do so). I'm inspired to learn new techniques in any way I can.
That's why I started participating in this challenge. Not only to learn from others, but to give place and purpose to practice! Who knows how good I'll ever become...but here's to having a blast trying!!!
taken a back seat
to my picture-taking.
Maybe I should just
invest in good ole fashioned
photo albums and frames.
Yeah, I just may do that.
