I received a wonderful gift recently – a DSLR camera. For the past few days I have been out and about – snapping images; experimenting with different camera settings; trying to figure out what constitutes the right ‘light’; maneuvering for angle and composition – all the while noticing details around me that I may not have paid attention to otherwise. Photographs have always inspired me and now more so, as I am slowly understanding the amount of effort, concentration and skill required to take a ‘wow’ photograph. More importantly though, I have gained a new appreciation for the quality of patience. As I have found out, not much can be achieved whilst rushing around with Learner Plates.
Enjoy Part Four of the series.
