- Finally getting my act together!
- January 1st, 2012
Okay, I'm finally getting this thing into gear! I've been taking a lot of photographs and doing a lot of experiments; in my personal opinion, I improve a bit with each shoot, so I'm really eager to keep going and already have some more lined up for the next few weeks. I'm definitely still a beginner, but I've put a lot of effort into the images I've taken so far. I think I'll start posting on communities to see if I can touch base with other photographers.
Just a run down about me for anyone who may stumble upon this journal:
* I have a Canon EOS 7D, and I am struggling to teach myself how to use it. It's a very complex camera, and it was a tough choice for a first DSLR, but I researched for a long time and decided I was up for the challenge.
* I'm serious about wanting to be the best I can be, so I'm constantly looking for good tutorials or explanations based on someone else's work or my own. So far I haven't had any completely solid critique on my photographs, and I would love to get some feedback from someone much more experienced that can help me to improve as a photographer. Nothing vague, harsh, or mean! Just honest, clear examples of what could be changed for the better. So far, the constructive criticism I've received has been contradicting and subjective.
* I'm just starting out with this particular journal, though I'm not new to LJ. I'd like to make some friends so that I have people to chatter with about these interests that none of my other friends really have. If you do anything with video and use After Effects, that would be a huge plus, as I'm also trying to tackle that program.
So yeah, feel free to add me if you're interested in photography. If you don't have photography listed as an interest, though, or aren't a part of any related communities, please leave me a comment telling me why you want to add me. Otherwise, I'll assume you're a spammer or a troll.
Happy New Year to those who are starting over now! Time for some fresh starts and new beginnings.
