I've always enjoyed art, so I used to draw and paint. Getting older, it seemed I had less time with the hustle and bustle of daily life to enjoy my pastimes. So it was then that I decided to try my hand at photography. Started off with film but in a short time, purchased my first digital which was a 1.2M pixel Kodak camera. Amazing how this technology has advanced!!
No longer was it necessary to carry roles of film and the expense that came along with it. This is one of the great advantages of digital. But more-so, photography was an advantage for me because it took less time to snap a scene than to draw it. This is how art and photography became what it is for me today.
To put in composition, the scene/subject was no longer something I had to spend countless hours drawing as the scene would change... It is a true gift to be able to see and envision something before it is photographed. To me the trick is the art that comes in replicating what I envisioned...
