Have you ever wanted to try something just to see if you are any good at it? Well, that's the way I feel about photography. Everybody and their cousin thinks they can take pictures and that they should be a professional photographer. Not true. (In my opinion.) Just because you bought an expensive camera doesn't make you a photographer. Not everyone has the "eye" for it.
When I was in school, I majored in Art. I even had a scholarship to go to an art school in Columbus Oh. I turned it down. In my (stupid) opinion, I didn't think you could make money by doing anything with art. Plus, when I went to the school to look around, everybody was dressed all in black and had a "I hate the world" look to them. I was not like that. I liked color! I liked the world! hehehehe. So, I turned down the scholarship.
One thing that I wished that I'd taken though, was photography. Yes, I can draw, and I can paint, and I'm not to bad at sculpting, but I've never REALLY tried photography. Sure I've pointed and clicked, but I've never REALLY tried to take a picture. So here is my first try.
So until next time,

P.s. If anyone has any good sites to learn photography for idiots, I would appreciate the info. :)
