I love taking photos and want to be able to take good photos more often. My desire to improve has driven me to search for learning opportunities. I have looked into some online photography courses, but haven't found something that fit my needs that was within my budget. Knowing other opportunities had to be available, I searched the local library and found some great books on digital photography.
I try to incorporate what I read into my next photo shoot, so I can practice the technique or idea. I have learned a lot about lighting, focus and composition. I am really excited to be learning more about photography and look forward to continuing on my journey. I can't wait to see all the photos to come!
I like old barns, something about them makes me feel at ease. I think it may be that the old barns remind me of my early years when my parents farmed. I spent many a day tromping in and out of our barn playing with the calves, piglets and my ponies. Those memories are something I will treasure forever.
A few old barns...
This barn was restored a few years ago when it was moved. It doesn't have the old weathered look that the others do, but I like it.
