Welcome to my first blog post and Thank you for joining me on my photography journey.
I was a given a trip to Paris by my company in 2013. I decided that I wanted to take as much photos as possible to remember the trip. Paris has always been a place I have wanted to visit.
On the morning of the my departure I went off and bought what they call a Bridge camera. Which is something between a compact camera and bigger DSLR. I had no idea how to use it properly but I at least able to take photos to remember the trip. Paris was amazing and I loved every minute.
After I returned the photography bug bit me and and I decided I had to learn how to take better photos. The learning curve was very steep. Taking good photos is not as easy at it seems.
Soon after that I joined a local photography club. It has been a great way to improve my photography. We have monthly themes and we get judges in to judge our photos and from which we have monthly winners.
I remember the first year or so when my photos came up to be judged my heart started to pound and I sometimes felt I could just run out the room. Then you had to listen to the judge crit your photo that you thought was so awesome. Only to learn how much you could have improved it. That is all part of the learning curve and I'm great full all the judges input.
That year one of my photos was voted club photograph of the year. I was totally stunned and I couldn't believe it. From then I never looked back and I have grown from strength to strength.
In part two I will cover the rest of my journey. Thanks for reading this far.
