A while ago I bought myself my first DSLR camera. Up until now I have used digital point-and-shoot cameras. My first attempts with the DSLR were utterly hit and miss. One photo would work and the next would be completely out of focus. My close-up shots were generally better than the distance shots I was taking and I’m slowly getting better at these.
I’m beginning to get more shots that are actually in focus –
and I’m starting to think I might eventually be able to take the kind of close up shots I want –
My distance shots with the new camera work ok and the focus is nice and crisp but, more often than not, I’m finding the photos themselves are uninteresting.
I find them much more interesting when I play around with them on the computer –
Maybe that’s because what I’m focusing on in my life is changing a great deal at present and I want to create images that somehow reflect that. Things that used to seem really important no longer matter so much to me. A lot of old ways of thinking and being are falling away but, as yet, I’m not entirely clear as to just what replaces them. While I feel a lot lighter and clearer than I have for a very long time I’m a bit hazy as to the details of just what the future holds.
