EXPLORED

 

I have been taking photographs as a hobby for about 18 months now. I have been registered with flickr for just about a year.

 

In that time I have been amazed at what tips, tricks and inspiration I have picked up from other photogaphers on flickr.

 

I am passionate about the quest for a photograph - looking at things differently, trying to compose a great photo from something ordinary; or capturing an unique moment. This gives me a great kick.

 

When I upload these shots on to my laptop, I have a real buzz when I see what I have captured. Some are not as good as I expected, some are atrocious, but a few are a real treat.

 

I then really enjoy using Photoshop to crop, enhance, adjust my photo to please my eye. Some people see this as cheating, but I don't see the difference in doing this as opposed to the manipulation that can occur when you develop your own film. Anyway, I really enjoy this creative part of my process.

 

When I upload to flickr and someone sees it and comments on it, it makes my day.

I do all this to please me, but when it pleases someone else as well - that is the icing on the cake.

 

Photography is like a drug to me; but I don't want to kick the habit.
