Beginning the Journey

On my first photo Journey back in February not long after I got my camera I took many pictures and I deleted almost as many as I found this is just one part of the learning process, It pained me to actually delete them knowing that I worked so hard to find that just right shot but after staring at 15 or 20. Shots of the same subject over and over that I was not really losing anything but actually gaining the ability to pick a good shot out of a large amount of pictures. With that being said here are just a few of my beginning shots.

I did exactly the same thing when I started shooting and to be honest there are still occasions that I do a double or triple shot of the same thing because it just didn't feel right the first, second time. This is the only way to learn.  I really like #1, the texture and colors of the building really stand out. Nicely done grinning

Thank you, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. I did these back in February and I think I'm even worse now lol, but I am learning to use my camera more so hopefully in time I won't have to delete so many smile

Keep at it - I delete about 1/3 to 1/2 that I take because I have such a hard time seeing the shot (bifocals suck) until I get it on my computer. That's the beauty of digital - the film is free!

Ahhh yes the pictures always look so much better on a bigger screen but it also makes the flaws stand out so much more.
