Growing up as a military brat. I moved a lot . As I told my granddaughter one time when she was unhappy about moving. Think of it as an adventure, new friends,new things to see, new home, and new opportunities.As a young child I did not understand this myself. However, as I look back on my adventures I realize the greatness of seeing new places, things and people. I was given a camera at a young age and started my journey into photography.
The rolling of film strips, the pulling of Polaroid’s, the turning dials of the film camera, the developing, and waiting! Then in the late 80s my first Minolta 35mm film camera and lens...Zoom, wide, ect.developing on cds or floppy disk. The computer,the programs to edit...WOW.I started to see things in a different way. These were amazing photos. I thought.
For Christmas 2003, my hubby bought me my first digital camera a Kodak point and shoot because my Minolta broke. I still have it somewhere. It was my friend for many years. Therefore, with my first digital camera I could see the progress that the world of photography had made.
In 2007 I started selling my photos (which were very BAD) on stock sites’ the rejection. Now I learn from them. Then my Canon 400D Lens and more lens. It broke and now I am blessed with a Canon 50D.It amazes me everyday. As an amateur photographer I see things different than most, the beauty in everything.I Joined DT in 2008 but became active in 2009.Now I chose to be exclusive here at DT.It works for me. Less stress! Hope this was not to long. Happy shooting everyone
