Making More Time to Take Photographs

I receive Photoshop User Magazine, and love looking at all of the newest-and-best camera equipment available. I think “if only” I had a camera like “that,” I would be taking amazing photos all of the time.  But the truth is, I just need to learn the capabilities of my own camera more than I do.  It’s not the camera, necessarily, that takes great pictures; it’s the camera operator. Oh, sure, a good camera is definitely a help… but knowing how to use your camera and taking the time to practice, practice, practice is a big step in the right direction.

I seem to think I don’t have the time to spend practicing with my camera. But this article, 6 Tips on How to Make More Time for Photography, has convinced me I’m going about this the wrong way.  I’ve been looking at photography-learning-time as “sand” rather than a “pebble.”  (When you read the article, that will make sense.)

When I walk into my office, I have a cabinet on the right.  I wish I didn’t use it as a “catch-all” for things I need to do… but I do.  You see my camera is right there on top of it all…truth be told, it might even have a little dust on it.

    I agree! I can’t blame PS for my lack of blending ability. I just need to learn more about theprogram, and remember what I learn!

    This is so true! BY the way, I just love the sign on the wall in this picture!

      Thanks, Carla. When I was just starting to design, I bought that sign as an encouragement to me on my days of frustration. 😉
