Photography is a creative outlet for me as I am sure it is for most if not all of us. I am not trying to become a professional photographer, but I wouldn't mind the opportunity if that door opens for me. To me it is about going out and having fun, and taking pictures of what I want to photograph.
I am new to photography, but I have always enjoyed having a camera in my hands ever since I could remember. At 24 years old that same enjoyment comes back to me now, sometimes I think I get even more enjoyment than I did back then. I remember always playing with my friends polaroid Joy Cams and having so much fun just shooting and seeing what came out. I am happy to see that love and passion of shooting still resides in me. Even after not having my very own camera till I was 21 years old when I got my Minolta Maxxum 7000 from my grandpa. At 24 I am finally learning how to use it as far as shutter speed and f-stops are concerned. There is always more to learn and I can honestly say that in my whole life this is one thing that I am actually eager to learn about and accomplish to the best of my ability. I have had many hobbies come and go such as playing the bass guitar. I could shred with the best of them, but nothing compared to photography now days. Maybe this hobby will come and go like the rest of them, but for now I am living in the moment and enjoying shooting. I think that is what photography is for me, living in the moment and capturing just a small part of it to take with you.
