My Photography Story

I have owned a camera since my teenage years. I got my first part-time job at 13 years old and took my first paycheck to a pawn shop and bought a Canon AE-1 (this was 33 years ago). Since then, I have had a camera in my hands. I took it to school, concerts, everywhere I went. Sadly, I don't have any of those photos any more.As an adult, I dabbled in photography. Travel and vacation photos, food, flowers, etc... All in 35mm and had a hard drive filled with scans of the negatives. That died too.... continue reading

Petphotography

As a foster mom for streetkittens, I just couldn't resist those cute little faces and ran behind those little basterds with my camera ALL THE TIME. That's where it all started...I have always been into photography since I was little, but it was never more than some buildings and family portraits. Untill I started taking care of streetcats. As a foster mom, you know those lovely animals will leave some day to go to there forever home. I had to have something to hold on to, to keep the memory of... continue reading

Two Weeks Later

It's been almost two weeks since I made my first upload and I have 14 approved photos. With an approval rating of 100%! Which in some ways is fantastic, but in other ways it will make that first rejection much more powerful. I am very particular about the quality of my work, which I think translates into that statistic.I have only uploaded about half the number of photos that I intended to in this time. But they have all been the ones I am most proud of out of each session and hopefully that will... continue reading

In the Beginning

I have been taking photos for years. Many photos. Anytime there is a camera in my hand I am taking photos. Anytime there is not a camera in my hand I am composing scenes in my head and wishing I had a camera in my hands.All the while people have been complementing me on my photography. On my raw, unedited work. Images that are screaming at me to refine, to make perfect.But I never did anything with it. I let the photos sit on hard drives to be lost in the sands of time. To be hidden in a box... continue reading

Concept Of Carrying A Camera Everywhere You Go

I heard this from Jay Maisel centuries ago. And I'm trying to do it even its a hustle - since I carry my camera in a shoulder bag and advantage of living in a small town, no one approached to say "you can't take photos here!"... They mostly like to think that I'm a journalist. I've even took shots inside of grocery stores.  But I feel that a range finder type of camera would be much better choice than a big heavy dSLR.  On the other hand snapshots of course doesn't cut it. I'm... continue reading
