Photographers get enjoyment from many aspects of their profession or hobby. It can come from the satisfaction of capturing a beautiful sunrise or sunset, a nice scenery shot, macro shot. There is satisfaction in just taking a picture and enjoying it yourself. I enjoy that satisfaction but I get even more from the people aspects of photography and I would like to address that aspect of my photography in a few short articles.
I plan to start broad then narrow the articles down to recognize a few individuals who have been very helpful to me in pursuing my photography interests. If you are following my blog I think you know who you are so be forewarned as I will be focusing on you, not in front of the camera but in my blog. Some have been helpful with their encouraging feedback, some from a teaching and a technical perspective, while others have contributed by spending time in front of my camera.
I have spoken with several folks lately who take photographs but they don’t use any of the on line opportunities to share them. I believe they are missing out on a very rewarding aspect of photography. Here are a couple of examples:
I frequently take pictures of the sunrise and when I have time I will post them on my Facebook page. From the comments received, I know at least some of my Facebook friends appreciate the shots as I frequently will receive “likes” or “comments” from across Canada and the USA and other parts of the world. It is nice to know others enjoy the sunrises and even nicer when they take time to comment.
