Hello, all photography enthusiasts! I do hope you are having a wonderful day! Today I want to help you follow your dreams. What is it going to take to become a photographer? Here are a few things:

  • Knowledge
  • Initiative
  • Drive
  • Creativity

Over the next few weeks, I will be addressing what it will take to become a photographer. Not the business side… yet. Simply what it takes to create AMAZING photos. Notice how I listed Knowledge first. Knowledge is powerful. You need to know many things to be a photographer. Like…

  1. How to work the camera.
  2. The difference between lenses.
  3. How to use light and shadow.
  4. How to compose a photograph.
  5. How to pose subjects.

And so much more. So, I declare hump day as Workshop Wednesday! Next week we will be discussing light and shadow! This subject will go over a few posts, so don’t forget to check back every Wednesday!

    • Aww! Thanks, Ashley! You can try Pulaski County Park which has lots of trees and is on the lake. There is also a small garden area by the public library. Bear Wallow Farm is good, too! Thanks so much for your comment! Photography is so much fun! Keep shooting!
