Hi everyone, my name is David Brennan and I'm hoping to use Photoblog to record a 365 project, hoping as I've tried, and failed, twice. I found Photoblog while reading an article from @girafferacing
Photography started, for me at least, at a young age. When I was about 5 or 6 years old I can remember being mesmerised by the magic being performed by my Grandad when he shone a bright light at a blank piece of paper and then, for some strange reason I couldn't understand, proceeded to soak it in water. I can still remember being amazed when after a few seconds, not only did the paper not collapse into a pile of mush, a picture started to magically appear.
It would be almost another 20 years before I took my interest far enough to learn how to do this trick myself. By then I had been taking snaps for about 10 years using a compact camera, always sending the film away to be developed. I decided to get myself a "proper" camera and taught myself the basics with some success (and a lot of failures). The first SLR I bought was a Pentax ME super. A City and Guilds photography course soon followed. Over time I upgraded my camera and lenses to the current Canon digital equipment I am currently using.
I live in Newcastle upon Tyne, I'm an experienced photographer and am currently expanding my knowledge by taking a photography degree which will be finished in 2017. I enjoy creating images that tell a story and since starting my degree have found a love of photographing people.
