So, it seems I've taken to this photography hobby. After 14 months of continuous shooting, I've decided it's time to start learning more, connecting to other photographers, and broadening my horizons. Although, I am aware that I need to be careful not to overwhelm myself right out of it. Baby steps, I love baby steps! This month, I baby stepped into a workshop at a local camera shop and then, a couple of nights ago I attended a Meetup of local photographers - the topic of which was "macros" for which I have a great affinity.
So, good. Great! Moving along. The Meetup was, in particular, an incredible experience. I was on cloud nine the whole ride home. I even stopped to take a photo or two on the way home, just for fun and fooling around. And, then, in the driveway, as I gathered my bags, my camera came out of its and was launched into midair.
Down it came with a crash.
And, that was that.
So, now we are investigating how to go about replacing it. I may even step up to a DSLR.
In the meantime, I'm borrowing Paul's Canon Powershot.
Yesterday was the first day I fooled with it - getting to know it. I was also fooling with some of the tips and tricks I was shown at the Macro Meetup, specifically depth of field.
I expect to find that my broken camera opened a door to a new chapter
in this hobby of mine.
