I've never really been in tune with the 'touchy, feely' side of expressing myself, or, to my detriment, of listening to the experiences of others. So I caught myself by surprise, when I realised that some of the articles and books I've been reading recently, have inspired me, not from the 'daring tales' of the action of the story, but more about the personal journey that an individual has taken.
I don't claim any special skill or background, or even achievement that merits this blog being a 'must read', but I hope that some will find little nuggets to appreciate on their own journey.
My initial articles concentrate on my discovery of photographic passion. Typically this is through stages of various hardware acquisition. Later I will discuss some of the tips, tricks & techniques that help me, along with a few of the traps where I've messed up.
One area that I have found sadly lacking, is the number of articles to help one move from Intermediate to Mastery of photography. Is this where it all becomes a 'trade secret', are we too ashamed of our 'keeper rate', or just too busy or not aware of the subtle nuances that make a better photographer?
My next series of articles will be about some of the lenses I own, and have owned, and on a purely biased basis, what I recommend, if your budget and shooting interest align with mine.
