Observe my photography skills



You know, when I decided to start writing about music again I had no intention of doing anything other than writing. When I discovered that photography would be part of the deal it was just kind of...OK. Not something I've ever made any effort to learn how to do, but it can't be that hard, right?

Many months later I'm here to tell you, it's a lot harder than it looks. Half of what I get ends up being out of focus (discovery - it's actually much harder to shoot in digital than with a traditional camera), it's a lot more complicated when you can't use flash, and I really need a better camera. However, like most things, if you keep it at you do eventually improve.


Lately I've been getting a few shots that I actually, gasp, kind of like! A most unexpected development. Now if I can just figure out how to pull that off more consistently...




These shots are of Dir en grey at the Regency Center in San Francisco, if anyone's wondering.

I am just now getting the hang of it, but ohhh, I *loves* my digital camera! But if you saw my bike race photos, you know I have a lot to learn. I love being able to take photos from the car, though!


(((PS: It was great to see you again, dear Cassandra.)))

What are you shooting with? I currently have a Canon Rebel XTi but am looking to move up.

Those are great shots! They give you a sense of being there. I haven't gotten beyond point and click myself.
