It has to start somewhere I suppose, but it did not make sense to post something recent. Figured I would start from the beginning. It started with this beast of a camera here in all its glory, back in the early 2000s, and yes that is a pop up flash, thats how kick ass it was.
As you can see, there aren't many controls to the camera itself, but it was something. My dad somehow was able to teach me the basics of camera, aperture and shutter and all that jazz. But that was about it, not much I can do with that knowledge so I moved on.
It was until years later when I had my hands on my uncle's D300, for me to realize how much technology has changed, and how photography improved because of it. Taking a photo has never been easier, and I was hooked.
Later that year during christmas I got my first camera, the Rebel XSi (450D), excited as I was I ripped it out of the box and took it out for a walk around my hometown.
Form this brilliant gallery you can obviously tell that I am naturally talented in photography, obviously. As I was going through these images for the first time, I couldn't believe how terrible they are. I have learned from then on - the camera does not take good photos, the photographer does.
