Armed with a stack of library books I am determined to learn how to use Photoshop. Figuring out how to use layers and the meaning of the terminology feels at times like a mammoth task. There is just so much to learn! Made a small breakthrough this week when I finally figured out how to ‘select’ sections of an image – now some fun play can really begin.
I love photography. At the outset of this year I made it a goal to improve my photographic skills. Sure enough, shortly after setting that goal my digital SLR slowly started to die. It’s shutter mechanism is gasping for breath and barely functioning – just as my interest in photography is starting to grow again. The quote for repair is quite expensive so now I need to make the decision if perhaps it would be better to just buy a new camera armed with the latest technologies that my budget will afford. This leads to another question– should I stick with Olympus (I’d only need a new body) or sell the lenses that I have and change brand, perhaps to Canon. What do you think?
My new blog is part of my creative pursuit to practice practice practice photography. I’m hoping that practice will make
perfect me a better photographer. To date it has been a very eclectic collection of photos. The aim is to shoot and post a photograph every day. The only rule that I have set myself is that the photo should be from the day it is posted. It has been a good rule as it pushes me to look for photographic opportunities daily. There have been a few uninspired days, but I guess that is all part of the learning process.
