When did you become hooked with photography?
*Let me know if this is the right group for this kind of thing, new to Fstoppers posting*
This picture inspired me to create an Fstoppers account and become part of the photography community.
Art has always been something I love, the emotion it evokes and the story it tells never fails to amaze me.
As I'm sure we all do, I remember the first time I picked up a camera. With no understanding of the settings to use or how to compose a shot, I ran outside, took a picture of the closest thing to me, which happened to be a blade of grass (we have all done it), anxious to see the result, I looked at the result on the tiny little LCD screen. The result... Black.
After looking blankly at the screen for a few moments, triple checking to make sure I had actually turned it on, I realised I hadn't taken the lens cap off...
How many reading this are thinking back to when they did this, even after years of using a camera?
Truth is even after that slightly embarrassing moment, Photography had me hooked.
Photography captures a moment in time that is otherwise lost or distorted by the human brain.
This photo was taken on 23/06/2019, and it was the moment I realised all I want to do is take photos.
