I'm just curious what made people really want to get into it. I've always been into photography. Since I was about 12. I bought my first camera when I got my first job at 15, and since then I've loved taking pictures.. But what really got me into photography was when I went to a photographer to get pictures of my son taken. I didn't feel at the time that I had a nice enough camera, nor the ability to take professional like pictures..Until I saw her work..And got screwed over! This woman charged me $100 dollars for an hour shoot..Ok..She took about 200 pictures. I was so excited to see the pictures! I paid her, got the cd, and when I went home to look, boy was I MAD! She gave me 15 pictures..Out of the 200+ that she took. Mainly all she did was change the color to black and white, or sepia. She put a vignette around several and pretty much called it quits. Now when I see her work, there is so much wrong with what she does! High contrast, overexposed pictures is all I see. I feel so bad for the people that actually go through her! But thanks to her, I decided to do all my own pictures of my son, and others. So...What drove you to do photography?
