It’s not the camera that makes it worth it. It’s the people that help me along the way that that actually enjoy putting up with my NooBee-ness. To think that someone could love a camera so much that they would be willing to take a moment out of their busy day to help me learn to spread that same love is simply priceless.
I haven’t learned to take great photos, and believe me when I say that my photos are really “beautiful on the inside,” LMAO!! Ok, well they are sort of like the weird chick that know’s she’ll be hot at some point in her life, even if only to the blind. In a nutshell, I should be able to take pictures in braille. –Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
Ok, but seriously folks. I’m simply amazed at the number of people that TRULY love photography. Sure, there’s always going to be a love/hate relationship between Nikonians and Canon Jockeys, but they they still have one thing in common: a camera. I reckon it doesn’t matter whether you skip or hop down a street, as long as you make it down the street.
I’ve met some amazing people (not in person) along the way that have made my camera adventures worth it. I’ve written more about ‘Kayne’ than I’m have about my husband but it’s all for good reason. Expect to read about ‘Tony’ once I figure out why in the heck anyone would want paint a photograph as beautifully as he has a way of doing. I’m hoping to meet more chicks along the way. It would be nice to know that I’m not the only girl who believes in matching a camera bag with her shoes (just because i want to be a photographer, doesn’t mean i can’t be cute in the process).
A couple of days ago, I registered for one of Scott Kelby’s PhotoWalks. There’s one being held in my town. I’m looking forward to it, and happen to be scared as heck at the same time. I just figured out Aperture Priority. I don’t think I’m quite ready to hang out with people that actually know how to change camera batteries.
