My passion for photography started early. I remember a time when all I wanted for Christmas was a Le Clic 110 camera – hot pink to go with my hot pink high tops, of course! I loved filling it with film, taking photos, and putting it in the envelope to send off to be developed. Then, you waited a week to pick it up. My how times have changed! When it came back, you never knew what you were going to get. I was young and inexperienced – I have a lot of pictures of my fingertips.
In middle school, we developed photos in art class. When I was in high school, I was a photographer for the yearbook. The dark room was a sanctuary. You started with blank white paper and created an image. My image. It was an amazing feeling.
My passion for photography grew when I was admiring the inspired photography captured and posted on Pinterest and by other bloggers. I was always amazed at what they could do with light. I’m still in the beginning learning stages with photography, but I can only see my interest growing in the coming years.
For my blog pictures, I use the Canon EOS Rebel T3. I love that thing. It has been on many an adventure with me – like a visit to the Grand Canyon –and captured some of the best times of my life. That’s what photography is to me – capturing memories. My favorite quote about photography is:
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Sussman
If I were to upgrade, I would definitely choose another Canon camera. The Canon EOS Rebel T5i would definitely be on my wish list!! Umm…. Hint. Hint. Anyone. #HintingSeason
