Hello all! I am new here but Id call myself an amateur photographer. Im from Vancouver Island, BC. Beautiful here..... I found your forum whilst searching for information about photography. I have been taking pictures with an old Canon Ftb manual film 35mm camera. I started about 10 years ago playing around with this old camera, one of a few remaining items from my fathers estate. I starting seeing things on how they would look as a picture. I have become hooked, and just snapped off hundreds of photos at my own expense in film developing costs. Many kept, many thrown away. Over the last few years, I have been asked to do weddings...done 4 so far, and other paid jobs are starting to come my way. I have played around with B & W and learned my camera well. Ive dabbled in filters, and learned compostional rules. In sept., I combined my love for photography with my school schedule and am taking some art and Photograpgy classes along with my B. Sc. in Geology. Photography class has been wonderful... Im learning about exposure, print development and lighting techniques. Its nice to have a class, and get some real instruction. I am going to attach some examples over the years of my work, please critque!!! If you guys are nice maybe you could help inspire or give me ideas for upcoming projects I may post about. Im always wanting to learn about this fabulous art medium !!!
