Because Hipstamatic Does Not a Photographer Make

I purchased this lovely DSLR camera a while back in hopes of learning how to capture beautiful pictorial stories. As a pupating shutterbug, mastering all the technical aspects of digital photography seems like an extremely daunting challenge. Luckily, I have a bunch of talented, camera-savvy friends who have offered to bestow knowledge upon me and help me understand the process. Once I get a grasp on the basics, I can start exploring the imagination, art, and science behind remarkable photography.

So far, I’ve learned that exceptional photography does not require fancy cameras and equipment. What’s truly vital is the honesty and courage to share the world through your eyes. I am curious to see what will unfold as I develop to my potential, and can’t wait to share my creative endeavors with you!

This is awesome! And what you said is so right - it's not about the camera or fancy equipment it's about showing people how you see the world. Are there any darkrooms around? Developing your own work is one of the best feelings in the world; we shall look into it - maybe a lunch break play-date! :)

This made me think of my buddy Christian. He had no clue about anything to do with photography, and now he's fucking amazing. Take a look at some of his stuff; it's all pretty awesome. http://www.flickr.com/photos/24071628@N05/

Photography requires an innate ability -- an eye. With what you've shown thus far, I'd say you have it. Now you need the technique and facilities to take you to the next level. This DSLR points you in the right direction. Keep truckin'.
