A little while ago, I finally took a small step towards something I've actually been thinking about for a year or more. For all those months, I've tossed around the idea of getting more serious about photography. Not as a job, by any means - just as a more regular hobby. In practical terms this meant I wanted to start taking more pictures, but it also meant finding a way to work with better equipment. My little digital point-and-shoot is nice and all, but I wanted something better.
Enter Baleeted, photography expert and dear friend of mine. He talked to me quite a bit about ways to start experimenting with light, angles, focus, and frames. Some good pictures came out of that talk, in my opinion. More importantly, however, he agreed to loan me one of his older cameras to play around with for a while. That made me very happy, and I was excited to begin.
Unfortunately, the concept of "free time" is not so familiar to me these days, so it took me a long time to even begin practicing. But once I did, I was really loving it. My college campus is absolutely beautiful, so I took advantage of the fabulous weather this weekend to go for a walk with Tali and K., and we snapped lots of photos and generally had a great time.
Here are some of my favorite Rodin sculpture pics:
So, what do you think? Could photography be my new artistic endeavor?
