When I started on this journey, I had know idea it would lead here. Blogging was not a thought, honestly writing was not my forte and teaching was really not on the radar.
My only thought was to put one foot in front of the other to find peace and someday happiness. My process of grief and my past has lead me to the images I create. I studied no one when I started on this journey. I wanted to find my own way. I wanted to be different and while I do see others that photograph similarly to me, I don't find anyone that is exactly the same. I've worked hard to get here...I have put more hours in practicing than you would believe. I have taken hundreds of thousands of images and deleted a whole bunch of them.
I learn by doing. When I teach, I teach the same way. I want you to do it, I want you to go through the process so you understand why you are doing it. I don't tell my students where to focus or what to see. I ask them what they see. I ask them what they are drawn to when they look at their subject. I want the same for you, no matter if you are reading my blog or taking my class.
So as I go through the process of deciding what to share with you week after week, I'm always asking myself...what would I want to know. What can I share with you to give you what you need to start capturing better flower images. Which leads to my question to you this week. What do you want to know? Leave me a comment, this is your chance to ask me a question. I will select one question a week to blog about. It will come with images, settings and the answer to your question, at least I hope it will answer your question. I guess I can't really commit to that 100% until I know what the question is. :)
I hope I've given you something to think about. I hope you will come up with a question or two I can blog about. If you could comment as early as possible it will allow me time to put together a blog I hope you will feel worthy of your time.
Have a good week and stay healthy....Sally
