I have always loved cameras. When I was a kid though, I couldn’t have one. When I got to adulthood, I had a series of inexpensive cameras and have a lot of fun photos to show for it. But none of them have much value except to me and the other people in them. It didn’t occur to me to take photos of anything except good times.
Flash forward to the digital era. Now, no more pain in the ass developing film! I was on cloud nine. I got a little Canon one-shot and had the time of my life with it. That it took passable video as well used to blow my mind. In 2004, I used a Panasonic video cam and the one-shot to create a music video. But eventually even those went the way of the dinosaur. I was thrilled when I got my first smartphone (android) and it took amazing video.
But it’s only recently, within the last couple of years, where I’ve decided to get serious about photography. So I took a documentary film course and a photography course at UMass while working on my degree (I went back to college after a 30 year hiatus). And I’m pretty insatiable with it. So, I took down my web design site, since I’m not doing that any more, and put up a photography and video site, which I plan to develop and grow. I have no idea what direction it will take but it’s on! More later as things develop.
