A Photograph captures a moment in time, to view for eternity
And may I return the compliment.
You do realise that this face will now be forever associated with yours so when I think of Vicki this is the image – ha!
Very funny, Julie.
There is a (very old) photo of me on my ‘About’ page taken about 20 years ago. I have a more up to date photo somewhere (sitting on my old desktop computer, I think – if, and when, it ever gets repaired with a new hard drive).
In the meantime, you’re welcome to associate the above photo with little ol’ me. It’s a little more flattering than my real photo – no grey hairs – LOL.
Same to you Victoria. All the best for 2013!
Happy and blessed New Year, Vicki! Nice Mandrill?
Hope 2013 brings you more opportunities to do some Photography.
You too Vicki!
Sending Lots of Love Victoria ~ May 2013 be filled with tons of LOVE and JOY for you! I may actually need to start learning about some technical photography this year (new camera DSLR Canon Rebel 3i for the holidays/bd) ~
Once Shoulder and neck settles – will be writing you for lessons ~ Much Love ~Robyn
Hope the shoulder and neck settles soon – may I suggest Rule no 1 (for us chronic pain sufferers) – don’t wear your DSLR on your neck strap, the weight, while not a prob for normal healthy people, causes bad neck and spine pain within minutes of putting it around my neck, especially in the lumbar spine where I had my surgery. Because I have Fibromyalgia and feel pain over every part of my body (nerve messages from the brain are awry), as well as spinal pain from severe disc disease and Scheuermann’s disease, it took me a while to work out the best solution.
I bought a wrist strap within a week, but actually carry my camera in my hand most of my walk now that I’m used to the weight (or in the shoulder bag placed diagonally over my body to spread the load).
Work out what suits you best for your level & area of pain – everyone’s different.
Rule no 2 – don’t worry too much about the technical aspects at first, just practise, practise & more practise at taking photos and get used to the weight of the DSLR and keeping your hand still. I didn’t use full Auto for more than a week or two. I’d used Auto on my little point & shoot camera for many months and didn’t find it necessary on the DSLR. I swapped over to the Creative Auto settings pretty quickly when I bought the DSLR and I think I used Aperture Priority (AV) mainly for the first few months.
Don’t know whether it’s my short-sightedness, but initially, my photos were never quite the same as what I saw through the viewfinder with the DSLR (as compared to the little Point & Shoot).
Drop me an email if you have any questions (especially if it relates to holding the DSLR with our chronic pain problem – healthy people can’t quite comprehend the difficulties we face trying to do certain things with constant pain).
