There are so many aspects of “taking pictures” to consider, and for many people it’s just a matter of capturing a moment, and honestly, most of my photos are still the “moment capturing” variety, but lately I’ve been trying to be more conscious of the shots I take, and how (and if) I post-process them.
I’ve noticed that I seem to be writing a bit less, and taking pictures a bit more. You’d think the photos would take less time, but I don’t think that’s the case. I do think that consuming photos happens much faster, as I can keep up with my friends on Flickr, but I’m weeks (or months) behind on most of my blog subscriptions.
I’m also starting to feel the limitations of a cheap digital camera. Even when I get what I think is a good shot, it seems to lack the tonal range it needs to really make the images burst.
Anyway, I’d like to get a better camera at some point, and really start to see what I can do with it. I shot film in the olden days, and really liked it, so it would be nice to have a camera with a bit more control over the input.
Oh yeah, you can see my photos on Flickr, if you care…
