I’m a photographer

I am learning to say that I am a photographer.  I went through a similar phase when I started running.  All you have to do is do a thing, and you are a doer of that thing.  It doesn’t matter if you’re any good at it.  You are still DOING it.  Therefore, I am a photographer.  I am not trying to start a business, just to be able to take great shots of E.  I purchased an entry level DSLR camera a couple of months ago and have slowly been learning how to use it.  Early on I refused to use the automatic modes so manual it has been.  I am looking forward to watching the progression of my skills on this blog.  I recently purchased Canon’s nifty 50 lens and can now get much better shots of Emmet.  Now if I could only get him to slow down/stay still for a few seconds.  He is always on the move!

  1. You’ve got some wonderful shots of your adorable little guy. You’re learning quickly!

    Also, I so identify with this. It was a huge step for ne to call myself a writer when I first started writing seriously almost ten years ago. When I was given my first DSLR and started taking photos, I hesitated to call myself a photographer. I think it’s so easy to get caught up with the (very American) idea that if you don’t make money doing it then it’s not legit. Now I claim it loud and proud!

    (BTW we met at the AP meeting this week – I was there with my husband and son, and Isaw your URL on your profile. Hello!)
