The past few days have been fun. They’ve been filled with a lot of curiosity and eagerness to learn something new. I feel like photography might be a hobby I’ll be pursuing heavily.
I find it fun… because it gives me something to do. More than just fun, it’s a series of what happens if I alter the settings to obtain a more seasoned take of the photo. On the past few days I’ve been working with two people that have been helping me get up to speed with a lot of things photography except composition.
For now I’m just having a blast with learning more about ISO/Exposure Time/Aperture. These three elements are fairly important at least to me when it comes to all things lighting and if I don’t learn it I don’t think it would’ve made much sense buying a Nikon camera.
I feel like the greatest challenge so far is actually having a good composition in the photo. Everything in place and working in harmony. I don’t think I will be able to master that anytime soon but as time passes, maybe.
Either way… it’s a hobby. One I hope that stays a hobby. I think I’ve found something I can become quite passionate about. It’s really a break from all things programming. I don’t think you know how much photography means to me as a new hobby. Perhaps I’ve been burnt out to the ground with programming and need a break from it.
Nonetheless, it’s fun and keeps me busy.
Wrapping this up. Feel free to check out my Flickr and follow me.
