I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone elses motivation for doing photography is.. I think it gives different thingst o different people. So.. Why did you get involved in Photography? What do you enjoy about it/what is your motivation? I got involved in Photography when my daughter was born in May of 2003. Like any new parent I went camera crazy and have more than 1000 pictures of her from just the first year! :shock: I have alwaya admired good photography, especially photography of people/children, and I am a perfectionist, so eventually I wanted to take GOOD pictures of her, not the snapshot type. I started reading about photography and looking at photoblogs, and it made me want to try. I got a Fuji in October, and have been snapping shots like mad ever since. I think what I like about photography the most is the "hunt". Going out and trying to capture the perfect shot, and then the moment you load the pictures up.. its like opening Christmas presents, you're all excited to see what you caught. I have always wanted to paint and/draw, but I just dont have the skill, to me photography is another way of expressing myself visually.
