Everyone that knows me since my son Jaden was born in 2005 , has been bombarded by countless photographs on a weekly basis. Our family and friends are always happy to get them since Jaden is a bonafide miracle. Jaden three months premature a ‘micro premmie’ and he weighed 1 pound 14 ounces at birth. This was my sole motivation to capture every single defining moment, whether small or grand in his life. Now four and a half years old, he is a normal, happy, healthy boy.
My love for photography grew as I took photos but I had no patience to learn how to properly use a camera. You know all the boring technical stuff like DOF (depth of field) or Bokeh, aperture, and all the seemingly complicated terminologies but much needed knowledge in order to take that perfect photograph.
Once this blog was created I noticed what stood out with most successful blogs were the beautiful photography that accompanied the posts. My lovely cousin Kirstin and her wonderful hubby Tom who live in London has taken me on as their ” well viral student”. Via face-book they have already helped me pick out the perfect super fast lens and give me hints on my photograph’s online.
My loving hubby aka The Epicurean Man has been a bit annoyed about becoming one of my guinea pigs, but he really has no choice. My favourite subject to test on is my son aka The Karate Boy who we think is becoming a DIVO and poses way too much now. I have created a little monster in him.
I am only still at the very early stages with my photographing capabilities but I hope through this blog that if anything you get, it will be just a laugh on this journey I am taking with my camera- which is a Canon EOS Xti as well as an Olympus Pen. I also welcome any advice and love opinions from my fellow reader’s in cyber space.
