So what has brought me to this point in life where I am in my early 40’s and just starting the second part of my life as a photographer? Maybe because I have always been around a camera in one way or another. Whether it was watching my mom take pictures of us as kids, sitting around in the living room looking at her pictures in the slide projector tell stories on the wall. Maybe it is because 2020 has motivated me to do something different like many of you. When 2020 started we all thought “New year, New Us” and then 2020 slowly pulled back the curtain and in an long , slow and evil laugh showed us what it had in store for all of us. It has been a year like none of us have ever seen in modern history. But we are all doing what we can to survive and get through it. It has been different for each and every one of us but we all share the same goal of coming out of this better!
What’s the plan here
Amongst these pages I plan to share with you my journey as a photographer, my “skill” as a writer, and my life as a human being. I encourage you to follow along with me, sharing your own experiences, feelings, ideas, or whatever you are thinking at the moment. We can all learn from each other in one way or another. This whole experience is about helping one another with the knowledge that we have and maybe we just haven’t shared it yet. Maybe we were scared to share it because someone else knew more then you. Well just in case you weren’t sure, someone knew more then them too! ‘The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing.’ –Voltaire
Let’s get going
What are we going to do? We will explore photography topics that may seem mundane or boring to some, but everyone has to start out somewhere. So whether the topic is ISO or aperture all the way up to some advanced techniques like Golden Ratio and taking a picture of the elusive moon and stars. Lets talk about how we started and why, who inspired us. My goal is to inspire someone start on their own journey, and then they will inspire people to start on some new journey too.
If my words inspire you, or maybe it’s my images that inspire you. Whatever it is stick around, participate, have fun and buckle up because here we go!
