I am 38 years old. I live in Southeastern Massachusetts and have been dabbling in photography since the seventh grade. I gave up on this hobby when everything started going digital. After all, this would mean that I would never again be drawn in by the smell of a dark room.
After a few years of protest, my husband surprised me with a digital camera for Christmas. I won't say that I haven't been "using" it ( I do get asked to "bring my camera" to most family gatherings to capture the moments) but, I really haven't ventured past the "auto" setting.
One of my New Year resolutions was to document my life each day through photography. I noticed that my Co-worker was posting pictures from 365 project on Facebook so I decided to check it out........since, I have never been more than 10 feet from one of my cameras! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for inspiring me to truly delve back into the world of photography. I am having so much fun!
Update! I have just completed my first complete year here on 365... I have also turned 39, but I digress. This project has well exceeded my expectations. It seemed to re-ignite my passion for photography, challenged me in so many unexpected ways, provided a document show-casing my life this last year.
Being a member of the 365 community has introduced me to so many wonderful and supportive people that I appreciate more that you know.
During the course of this past year I have also taken 2 photography classes which have expanded my knowledge of my (dinosaur) DSLR.
I find that now I am never without one of my two cameras perched and ready to capture snippets of my life.
I can't wait to see what 2012 brings!
