Camera Clicks – Photo Challenge: Squares & Circles

Went on a walk with my son on some wooded property that belongs to his wife’s family. We don’t get to hangout much, so to say this was special is an understatement. We both love nature and quiet…

Here is a couple of the photos I took on our walk.

And because I love B & W

Camera Clicks – Article by Peter Delaney

As you can tell, I really enjoy Phorography. I am very new at this. My favorite photographer of all time is Ansel Adams. I have bought a few instructional books tied to his work, but I just haven’t gotten to really read them yet. I spend time reading articles and watching videos on all things related to photography. Here is a link to an article i just read and found very Interresting:

I really dont spend any time editing as i read about alot of people doing this. Right now, i am a total purest. Why spend so much time looking and taking a picture that moves you then spend hours or even days editing? I just don’t get it, anyone want to help me out on this one?

I think about Ansel Adams taking pictures with real film, not a digital instant gratification set up, but the art of developing film was the real talent. By using a digital camera, my thoughts are, you should spend time following that voice that says “Omg thats a great picture or oh that touches my soul” then go home and see what you’ve got, not spend hours tweaking the picture.

What I’ve learned so far is, it is really hard to click that button to really capture what your heart sees. But i keep clicking…how about you?
