My relationship with my Cannon

I love photography, always have always will. I think that even before I took any photography classes I was always on family vacations trying to take pictures of the environment around me. I’m very much the type of person who wants to save the moment and I feel by taking pictures I can look back at them and try to reflect on where I was, how I felt, and what was going on in my life at the time. Because of this I also have a lot of pictures on my phone and I always have an extremely difficult time deleting old picture or parting ways with pictures because I guess I feel like if I delete the picture, I am also deleting the memory.

I used to look though photo albums my family kept and would try to imagine the time in which they were taken. Even if I wasn’t in them, I’ve always found them important in some way.

In high school I took 3 photography classes and began with a class that taught me all about film photography. I took photos on a film camera, developed my own film and practically lived int the dark room that year. My second year of photography class was all digital photography which was something I was more used to, that year I lived in a world of Photoshop, dodging and burning and adding layers upon layers to all my artwork. At this point I was just having fun and getting used to digital photography on my laptop instead of just on my phone. My last year of classes I took and AP Photography course which required me to submit a portfolio for grading at the end of the year. I actually submitted my artwork to a scholastic competition and won a silver medal as well 🙂

BUT all of my work was printed and I don’t have digital copies to upload to this post 🙁

Concluding, I’ve had quite the experience with photography but since I have been out of high school for a while now, I find myself needing to re-improve my Photoshop skills. For this It just takes some practice to get my feet back under me.

One thought on “My relationship with my Cannon”

  1. That’s super cool that you learned to develop film! I’ve always read about it and heard about it from friends and it sounds so cool-even though it’s a long process. That’s amazing 😀 I’ve always thought that developing in a dark room gives it a richer feel, though I’ve never made any myself (just seen my friends’ works).
