Hello everyone. I'm not really sure what to say in this post. I like cookies! And photography. The latter being the reason I am here (I haven't found the cookie enthusiast forum yet). I am a self-taught part-time portrait photographer with a love of still-life and macro photography on the side. My method of learning centred around getting out and shooting *everything*, then presenting the results for critique. The key was learning from the critiques. Lately I have stopped giving my stuff up for this kind of feedback, and honestly I think my work has suffered..... so here I am! I'm looking forward to learning and sharing with other like-minded people.
