I am just going to admit it. For a long time, I’ve have had a bit of a grudge against digital photography. It’s like there was some inner voice in my head yelling, “YOU! YOU are the reason I can’t find film locally! YOU are the reason I can’t shoot chrome! YOU ruined photography for me!” I had only been using my digital camera for snapshot type stuff.
The reality is though, that there’s nothing I can do about it. Where I was previously just working with light, I’m now having to work with “settings” and various programs, slowly, grudgingly, learning the details of the camera machine.
I’ve had some people nudging me to start taking photos again. To give it some real effort. And then that nudge became a shove. Oh, I don’t know… it has been so long. I think the hamster that ran the wheel behind the creative part of my brain, long since passed away and turned to dust. *kick* Okay, okay, I’m on it!
As for the bear, well… at some point during every shoot, it’s an absolute necessity to screw around. If you would like to follow my photos, done with my replacement hamster in training, I did create a secondary blog here on wordpress.com just for that purpose. My digital creative blog can be found here. More photos, fewer words.
