I am not the world’s best photographer. I can take a picture just fine, but when I took Basic Photo in college I got a C on almost all my assignments and it didn’t look promising. I figured I’d be alright though, I’d get a job where I wouldn’t have to take pictures, they’d have a photographer, I’d just do the reporting.
At a community paper, you take your own pictures. I had to in Owenton and I take some from time to time at the OE. At first I didn’t know the specifics, I took pictures and tried my best and the best shots were pure luck.
So, recently I started asking more questions about settings and what the camera should be set at for different shots. And it helped, I think. I’m getting better at this whole photography thing, over the past few months I have taken some pictures that are MUCH better than what I was taking when I first started. There’s a lot – I’m not being conceited, I’m just proud of myself. 🙂 So here are a few of my favorites that I have taken for the newspaper. More will come later.
