I guess I should really start by saying Bonjour, Hyvää Päivää, 你好, Привет and finally Hello :D
I’ve been taking photos for as long as I remember, whether it be ruining a roll of my dads best 35mm to borrowing tiny little compacts for memorable snaps. For over a year now I’ve had my own digital SLR and I’ve had so many experiences already! When I first bought it I was pestering my friends all the time with my lens in their face but after a few months I wanted to go deeper into the photographic world and soon immersed myself in mountains upon moutains of technical specs and numbers totally forgetting about taking photographs at this point!
Soon after I managed to rope myself a job in a night club (I hesitate to mention which club :P) which I learned quite a bit from. It could’ve been the exposure to other photographers or even just getting stuck in and producing relatively good shots of drunk people. One thing I learned, of many, was how to dodge spilled drinks on a dancefloor :D
And that takes me up to more recently where I’ve been home more and rather than shooting drunks I get to take photos of my family and particularly my neices. It has come to the point where the oldest will see me and immediately shout “Cheese” giving me her best smile (of course my camera still in its bag and another good moment missed :P). Other than that I’ve tried setting up some model shoots with close friends and they’ve come out far greater than I could imagine and I compliment my friends for putting up with me :D
I think thats enough rambling for now… Let me know if I should ramble some more?
