I told myself that when I finally purchased a new camera I would take the time and make the effort to learn how to use it properly. Well, I have been happy snapping away with a D SLR for just over a year now, I have read many books, watched tutorials/DVDs, taken courses and shot nearly 40,000 pictures to date.
During that time I have learned an incredible amount about making good pictures by taking a ton of bad ones! But most important I have had a great time snapping all those photographs and it has been an amazing learning experience.
Recently I wanted to have some sort of mechanism to share my experiences and document my successes and failures in an effort to grow my skills. I figured a weblog was the best conduit for my needs.
And so it begins...
PS Why the ridiculous name? - "Four Chickens and a Camera". It's simply because every other catchy, cool name I could think of was taken so I went with a nonsensical one instead. :-)
