I always liked being the photographer at the family or at friends get togethers, but never considered taking them at a professional status. I decided about a couple of months ago to take a photography class, because my father had purchased a digital camera for me, and I had no idea on how to use it! I'm still finding neet tricks everyday..and learning how to use programs that go along with a digital..(such as photoshop). I love the feeling of the camera in my hands, it's such a powerful one..to tell a story from your point of view, with literally a view. I also love to write, so I often create a story based on what I shot, great inspiration for writers block. Right now I'm just enjoying the learning experiance, I hope to one day be able to be a great photographer.
