I’m becoming more and more interested in photography. In part, I blame Flickr. (Though I also blame Cory at Z2, from whom I’ve been learning bits and pieces about the process.)
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…
