|Simple beauty is often the best.|
|Hello, my name is Joe. Photography is my passion and my hobby. I choose not to pursue a career in photography because I don’t feel I’m ready for that yet. But I feel that I have learned a great deal in the last six years, so I believe there’s no reason why I can’t help others while I improve my own skills.|
I received my first digital camera back in 2004. Since then, I’ve learned a lot about photography and the art behind it. The hobby really picked up in 2008 when I bought my first camera with manual settings and a 1 gig memory card.
I shot a measly 16,000 images in the first four years, but within that time I learned the basics of photography. Later, I decided that I was ready for a DSLR camera. So I did the research and bought a camera that would turn my world upside down, a Canon Rebel XSi. It’s been a great tool for learning some of the more technical aspects of photography; like image composition, lighting and framing.
I may not be the most tactful person at giving advice, but I’d hate for anyone to drown in this sea of art. It’s impossible for anyone to teach six years worth of experience in just a single comment or note. So if piece needs a little bit of help, I offer my advice.
So basically what I’m saying is; I’m proud of my deviations, but I will never say I’m a professional. This is my hobby and I will continue to improve myself as long as the passion is there. When someone offers some constructive criticism, I try my best to take it in like anyone else. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s why I love the deviantArt community and support that comes with being involved.
Thank you for visiting my page. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer.
