Well it’s no surprise I’m completely obsessed with my new camera. It’s amazing. And add in the fun of playing with photoshop?! Heaven! Who knew it could be so fun?
Zach gave it to me when he picked me up on Saturday and I haven’t put it down since. I don’t exactly know what I’m doing yet so I’m practicing on everything and anything. I took about 15 pictures in a row of my Starbucks Frappuccino and don’t even get me started on how many pictures I have of Nolan. Straight Momarazzi over here.
Aperture, shutter speed, ISO…so much to learn! I took a basic photography class in high school but as we all know, that was a long time ago, so I don’t remember much. I plan on watching plenty of tutorials and asking a lot of questions so that I can take the best pictures possible. As of now, it’s just a hobby but I feel like I’m passionate enough about it for it to possibly turn into something more in the future.
I don’t know what it is about pictures that I love so much. Maybe it’s the fact that the people in the picture can change but the picture will always be the same. Or that when I look at a picture, I’m instantly taken back to that time in my life and remember the good or bad times that were. Maybe it’s the beautiful architecture, scenery, or sunlight. All I know is that I find photography a true art form and this camera is just another reason to take pictures everyday.
I’ve had numerous people tell me that I take more pictures of Nolan than necessary or that I’ve had more professional photo shoots for him than anyone they know. Well, when they have a child and see how fast they grow and change, they will understand. I can’t even believe he is six months old and how much personality he has. He has favorite foods, toys, and TV shows. He knows when he needs to sleep and he knows when he wants to be held. He’s a little person now and I refuse to miss a single moment of his childhood.
Here’s to making memories and having someone (me) behind the camera to capture them all 🙂
