Today, is a turning point!

Easter Sunday with family and friends, always a good way to start a day. A friend, which I don’t often see told me today she was amazed at my talent as a photographer. My recent images of India was the subject of her comments. She told me she looks forward to any of my post that contain a photo. She noted that I catch the essence of my subject. I have never thought of myself as an artist, just someone that enjoys taking photos. I read everything I can get my hands on that discusses ways to improve your photography. There are times when I think I read to much and don’t spend enough time taking photos. I now look at everything to see the light and composition as if I was going to take a photo. I now have gotten into the habit of looking at everything from right to left, you would be amazed at how much detail you will see when you do that. I think today is a turning point, less time researching “how to” and more time “doing”. Tomorrow I am going to shoot that water wheel mill that I have driven by dozens of time.

I once saw a thread in Fred Miranda that debated the issue if someone is a hobbyist or a professional. One individual stated that he was an “enthusiast” rather than hobbyist. He noted that an enthusiast takes it more serious that a hobbyist. I guess I can say I’m an enthusiast photographer, I take it very seriously. I have often said I will travel anywhere to take a photo. I won First Place in the Landscape category in the first Photography Contest that I entered and I had a image published in an Alaskan publication for tourist. I have traveled to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Ecuador, Amazon basin, India, New Zealand and Australia for photo opportunities. I have been asked many times if I intend to sell my images. I would not want to rob the pleasure and joy out of photography by turning it into a job. This is not to say I would not sell my picture, but I do not want to turn it into a 9-5 job.
