Hi everyone! This is the photography account for !
After a lot of internal debate and a lot
of nervousness, I've decided to make an alternate account just for my photography, since I'd prefer to leave just art (my paintings and jewelry) in my main account.About me (and my photography):
I am very
much an amateur and while I do hope that my photo skills improve over time, I have no grand dreams of becoming a professional or anywhere near that level. That's what I hope my art is for...
Before now I had a digital point-and-shoot, and while it is a lovely camera (and I still use it quite a lot), it is showing its age and does not have a good reach for wildlife photos. So now that I have a DSLR I am fumbling my way along (my first camera when I was a teenager was a film SLR... you know, the kind that you had to develop! XD) and while I prefer to control aperture, shutter speed and ISO manually, I am constantly making goofy mistakes and generally just playing around and not making very good photos. That said, I DO enjoy sharing my intense love and enthusiasm for nature and so here I am, posting up photos that nearly anyone else with a camera could do a better job of taking! XD
So please bear with me in my flailing and clumsy learning of my camera, and my explosive love for the natural world!
Subject matter you can expect:
-Environments (especially things like moss)
I should mention that my photos are NOT stock photos, and in fact since I paint, too, I'd like to respectfully request that they not be used for direct reference... since I may well be using them for the same thing.
Thank you for understanding!
In closing: I will not be +faving things, or +watching people with this account; this account is pretty much just for uploading and sharing. You can view ALL my favorites, if you so desire, on my main account.
