Thanks lovely ladies for your sweet comments on my last post, some of you asked if I took classes for photography or a natural talent, I never had any formal training, my dad used to be a photographer, so I got my first camera when I was 3 years old (110 film camera), which I loved playing with! And got my first film SLR camera at 18. I would take pictures with my dad when I was younger, go on scenic trips and whatnot. I just have an eye for things and try to rush and capture it before it's gone. Candid shots are the best, and my favorite is Black & White because it's classic and timeless.
I started itching to shoot again when I was in high school so after I graduated I took a Photography class in college, but it only dealt with slides and Black & Whites. Then I stopped for awhile to go in front of the camera, as I then was modeling at the time, and thought i'd make good use of my time and started asking the photographers a thing or two, about settings, angles, and lighting.
I then took everything I knew and started to play with different subjects, locations, and lighting. And everything just developed from there. I want to keep shooting because I love it, I just hardly have time to, but hopefully soon I can grab my camera and just shoot somewhere all day. The one thing I hate about photography is how expensive the equipment is, the lenses especially, lordy!
So I got a new 'do yesterday, my friend dyed my hair a medium brown (looks dark in photos), he then cut some hair off to take off some weight and styled it, and I loved it!
Me and hubbo putting his phone stylus in his mouth...weirdo!
