I've always been a photo maniac. I cannot get through the day without either looking at photos, on flickr.com & other websites, and taking my own. I'm definitely NOT a photo expert...but i'm really trying to expand my skills and finally learn how to use my eyes and use the little ability I do have & turn it into something bigger. [In the fall I started training as a photographer at Jc Penney's Portrait Studio, but didn't get to work there very long because of the economy... BUT! I had an interview with a local photographer this week. I am possibly going to assist her, shooting at weddings starting in the Spring!]
I am finally taking another basic photo class. [Which is perfecto since I've been longing to learn more about photography and i'm majoring in media studies.] I think it will be really challenging for me and at least point me in the right direction, creatively.
I just bought my first digital SLR, a Canon Rebel XSi, in November and i finally have the opportunity to use it. Our first photography assignment was just about basic composition, using the same subject, location, and idea to transform each image into a completely different photo. So, I thought i'd share some of the photos I used for this project since you've heard me mention it! Nothing special... I kept it super simple since my skills aren't divine times nine yet.
