THE FIRST THING IN STARTING OUT IN PHOTOGRAPHY STARTS OUT WITH ONE QUESTION. What do I want to photograph?
The answer to that question leads you in determining what equipment to
purchase, what to zero in on learning, what to practice, etc.
I love flowers. That has led me into photography competition, some awards and a constant trying to do more and more in photography.
The nice thing about digital cameras is that you can "practice" a lot without spending a lot. And you don't have to wait till the photos are processed. You can take the photos and put the images in your computer right away without leaving your home/studio.
STORY BEHIND THIS PHOTO:
I had a friend that wanted some flowers photographed. I went to her house, but it was too windy to photograph outside. She had some flowers inside. Her daughter watched me as I gathered up 1 flower and placed it against the black counter top stove.
Much later I did a special effects with this image and it received the highest score in a local photography competition.
TODAY'S PROJECT - Zero in on what you want to photograph.
TOMORROW - I'll post the competition version of this photo and explain briefly how it was done.
