I have a basic Kodak easyshare point and shoot camera as I am just starting out with photography. I have always pretty much just taken pictures of the kids, but am branching out now, and trying different types of shots. I find myself driving down the road and thinking, “that would make a good picture” I recently took a digital photography class, and loved every minute of it.
I have made a change recently in my life to stop working at a dead end job that only paid minumum wage(even after 8 yrs of employment) and to really do some soul searching on what it is I want to do in this life. I am contemplating photography as a carreer, but am taking it slow, to see if its truly what I want to do. I have a big passion for creating, whether its photos, writing, scrapbooking, or editing photos.
I have always enjoyed writing. I dont write creative stories, just poetry.It has helped me through the pain of losing my son and my Grampa, and helps to get out the things that try to remain locked inside me. I find it very theraputic, because I am the kind of person that tends to hold things in, instead of stating how I feel. It is something I am working on changing about myself, but writing poems will always bring me comfort in knowing that they are mine, and I will never judge myself like I think others judge me.
Please look through my photos and let me know what you think…critisizm is welcome, as I am just a beginner in the photography field, and I hope you will read some of my poems, and maybe be able to relate to them.
