taking photos

Of the many things I love about photography, one of the best is that I'm never finished learning. I can look at any picture and decide there's room for improvement. I should have situated the subject in a different area, I didn't find my light correctly, more aperture, less aperture, different lens, faster shutter speed, blah, blah, blah.

I also have a bucket list of things to photograph, of course, when they're on the list they have to have the first I'm-not-sure-what-I'm-doing session in order to move to the OK-I'm-slightly-more-comfortable session(s).

I'm not sure that I'll ever be comfortable telling people what to do, but I'm working on it. (-:
  • sorrow, tears, ugly-crying 
    • it's difficult to pull out a camera in the midst of this, but I want to
    • landscapes
      • Grand Canyon
      • Pacific Northwest
      • Northern California
      • beautiful places I don't even know exist
      • nudes
        • specifically women 
        • documenting stories to go with the pictures
        • focused on bodies and shapes
      • carnivals
      • a big, set-up, family, shoot thing
        • I don't exactly know what this means, but I know it involves more than walking around and taking candids
      • wedding
      • birth
      The list will grow. Things will change. I'll be inspired by something new and different. 

      That excites me too.

      I love photography, be still my heart.
