at macrophotography. So I found a cheap nifty way to do macrophotography without dropping some serious moola on a new lens. It’s not the easiest set up though and I really need to get a tripod (I have one but someone lost the camera mount plate to it). It’s hard to get any decent shots holding my camera. But here’s a couple I did manage to get.
Photography has been my passion for a few years now. I started off with just a little point and shoot and then moved up to a DSLR. I am still learning. Actually I think that photography is one of those things where there’s always something new to learn. However, I’ve learned that photography is not just about pointing a camera and taking pictures. Anyone can do that. It’s about having a vision of what you want to capture. I constantly take pictures with my mind. Then if I have a chance, I get my camera and try to capture what I saw in my head. It’s a lot harder than it sounds.
Recently I’ve let my competitiveness get the best of me though. I kinda gave up on photography because so many people around here have opened up photography businesses so I thought “What’s the use?” I doubt I’ll open up a business but I have got to stop letting that get in the way of doing something I love and that I feel I’m good at. I’m looking at upgrading my camera and getting a new lens. I am supposed to be doing some senior pics for Jake’s girlfriend sometime soon. I am sure we’ll have a lot of fun and his gf is very photogenic so it’ll make my job easier LOL.
If I ever do open up a photography business, I’m beginning to think that I need to open up shop in a bigger county/town. There are just way too many photographers around here in this little area. I honestly think that most people get started with photography because they think it’ll be easy money. It’s not. It’s a lot of work. It’s not just about taking the pictures (which can take at least a couple of hours), it’s also about editing them to make them look the way you want them to. That can take several hours to accomplish. But I love it though and no matter how many photographers continue cropping up around here, I’m still going to stick with it…
So apparently my site got hacked along with several others. I am not sure if it was on my end or not. I always update wordpress so I’m not sure. I do have a partial back up but nothing extremely recent.
Hopefully I can get everything sorted out soon.
