I am not a photographer...as I am sure you well know. But I wish to bits I could take a decent picture. My sister is a whiz, again, as you well know. We were talking the other day about a blog or facebook post or something, where someone said they liked taking an 'okay' picture & making it fabulous. Now, while I appreciate that photoshop talent, I just don't have the time, energy or desire. My sister quickly pointed out, that that thought was backwards. You know, instead you should, take a great picture & then you just have a simple & quick edit.
duh. Why didn't I think of that?
Now I just need to learn how to take a decent picture. I've watched my sister enough that I feel like I have at least an inkling of what to do. I get where the light needs to come from. Which way people need to be facing. I pay attention to what I am framing. You know, I have a few tricks up my sleeve. But still, as I am sure you have noticed my pictures all around suck.
Another problem, while we are on the topic, I'm lazy. I don't want to learn another program. I don't want to lug a big camera. I just want a fabulous picture at the snap of my fingers. Is that too much to ask?
apparently it is.
And so. Here it is. I am putting it out there. My goal this month? Learn to take & edit a decent picture for pete's sake.
It can't possibly be rocket science. If you aren't a designer, then you are a photographer. I'm already 50% there & happen to know a pretty awesome photographer.
Time to buckle down & shoot.
Wish me luck.
