Photography is in my blood. My Grandfather even engineered some of the enormous machines that Kodak used to coat their film, and I work less than 100 yards from the third floor lab that started Eastman Kodak.
I have been taking pictures since that same grandfather gave me a Kodak 110 and promised to pay for my processing.
But somewhere along the line of growing up I sort of lost track of the artistry of photography. I got caught in in the snap shot trap and didn’t take the time to really explore the world through my camera. Slowly over the last few years that has changed.
It started as me just wanting to take interesting picture to serve as computer desktop images, but that simple act relight the candle of inspiration and I am now enjoying a renaissance of my photographic skills.
Man that sounds corny…. :)
Anyway, I have been further inspired by photo sharing sites as a place to share my photography as well as a place to learn and be inspired by others work. My photographic home on the net is Zooomr.
