Back when dinosaurs roamed, I had a 35mm SLR and some dark room equipment in the cellar of the house I lived in at the time. I gave up the darkroom (spiders, stinky chemicals, too many Hitchcock movies) but continued to take photos until my camera gave up the ghost. At that time, digital photography had just hit the consumer market so I went that route with a series of point and clicks. The smart phones hit and it was all too easy! Since I retired and moved to North Carolina I decided to try my hand with a better DSLR and decided to join the photo club and took Tom McCabe’s digital photography class offered through Craven Community College Adult Enrichment Program.
I bought my Canon Rebel a couple of months ago and have slowly been getting up to speed. I’ve been on some club photo shoots and dipping my toes into Photoshop Elements 15. At times I manage to stay afloat and at others I feel like I’m going down for the third time. Nevertheless, I persist.
I like shooting my pets, landscape, flowers, old buildings, furniture, cars, and the like. Here are a few of my first attempts.
