Once upon a time there was a photographer (let's call him Ron). Ron paid way too much for his first (2.1 megapixel!!!) digital camera, and followed that up by paying way too much for a Nikon digital SLR that had fewer megapixels (but much longer battery life!) than his current cellphone. And just as photography began to become too easy, Ron remembered the days of film, with it's scratched negatives, light leaks and print spotting. And it seemed like a hundred steps backward would be necessary in order to take one step forward...
The idea behind this blog is to
vent my frustrations take a bit of a sideways look at the whole ongoing motivation and process behind getting some images that I actually like. You just need to experiment and make mistakes to get any better, and if you are a photographer maybe this blog will help us figure out why we are fantastically passionate about something that has, let's face it, a really low success rate. I don't want to show you how to take brilliant photos, because I'm honestly not sure I'm able to do that. What I can show you though is how to take photos that you like, and that is much more important.
In the event that I don't screw up the chemicals or accidentally uninstall my scanner, I'll also share some photos from time to time. And if you want to make sure I know that this is the
worst best blog that you have ever read, please go ahead and throw something into the comment box.
