I wanted to learn a bit more about photography that what I knew. I have been picking up some tidbits of information here and there off of the internet and have been developing my skills slowly. I have just found some great websites, like Foden Photography, that I have been able to use for inspiration. Just looking through the different galleries of photographers that I have found has taught me about taking pictures at different angles and at different distances. I had never really tried to do anything like that. I would simply just point and shoot and hope that I caught the image the way that I wanted to.
I have spent hours online looking at other photographers’ pictures to see what else I have been missing when taking photos. I have found some beautiful photography in the process and it is really making me even more interested in improving my skills. I try to spend at least an hour each day looking at other photographers’ work and at taking at least fifty pictures.
Once I have the pictures taken, I upload them to my computer and try to study them. I also have some photo editing software that I use to play around with the pictures. It is one of my dreams that I will one day get the chance to go to school for photography so I can begin shooting weddings, family portraits and even scenic pictures that I just cannot seem to get right at this point.
One day, I want to have my own studio filled with professional equipment that I know how to use, but for now, I will be happy if I can just take some photos and have them turn out the way that I picture them in my head before I press the shutter button.
As I am currently underemployed I am considering what I can do to earn a bit of cash on the side. My best friend was looking for wedding photographers in birmingham and it gave me the idea that perhaps I could try something like that. Of course I was thinking more about less formal events like birthday parties for little kids. At least that is where I am thinking. I do not have all of the camera gear you would need to do a proper job of a wedding. For one thing you would need both still photography and video as well. I suspect that most people would want you to have a high definition video camera as well.
Last year, I started taking photos with a new camera that my husband had bought me. He said that I needed to take up a hobby to fill my time since my kids were all in school. It seemed to be a great idea and I had no idea that I would fall in love with it the way that I have. I have accumulated quite the collection of photos that I have taken.
I was online looking for ways to transform my photos into wall art that I could use around my house and maybe even sell at the different arts and craft fairs in the area. I had enough pictures in frames and wanted to find creative ways to display the photos that I have done in the past year. I have so many favorites that I wanted to learn a way to incorporate many pictures into one piece of wall art.
Fortunately, there is no shortage of creative ideas for things that you can do with photos. I found this one site that inspired me to create some things that I could have never thought of on my own.
