I am extremely happy to be on this site. I just received my first camera, this Christmas. It is a Canon A75. So, I am just starting my journey, in the realm of photography. I am currently in Belize, serving in our mission parish in Benque Viejo del Carmen. That being said, I have only the camera that my Grandfather sent me. I don't have lights, tripods, or anything like that. I am working with my hands and the capabilities of the camera only. Hopefully, I'll be able to obtain a laptop sometime in the future. When that happens, I hope to be able to do some of the cropping and things that people have done with their photos. I am more than willing to hear critiques and receive advice. I am just starting and need all the help that I can get. Please, feel free to help me out. Hopefully, I might even make some good friends from this experience as well. For any questions, feel free to contact me.
P.S. I think that I would like to just add an adendum to my profile description. I hope I spelled adendum correctly. Oh well...Here goes:
- I currently do not have Photoshop
- Even if I did have Photoshop, I believe in using it minimally.
- My shots are never posed. I prefer to catch the moment.
- I have had my camera for just a month with no prior experience, using a camera.
My Camera: Canon Powershot A75, 3.2 MegaPixels, Photos taken in .jpg format as RAW format is not supported.
My Friend's Camera: (I use this one as well) Canon Powershot G5, 5 MegaPixels, photos will now be taken in RAW format, then converted for fc in photoshop once I get it...now that I know what RAW is and is used for... :-) Thank you for the help Ingo!
Thank you...I wanted to post this, so that folks know where these shots are coming from. Sometimes it is hard to catch or frame everything perfectly, when everyone is on the move and the moment is fleeting...but I'm trying hard. Thank you all for your comments.
