It's been a wonderful opportunity to be introduced to Better Photo.com's web site. Although I'm not formally trained, just viewing the galleries and instructive comments has been a great learning tool. The art of photography has taught me to look at everything in a totally new perspective. Your small camera that fits in your pocket or purse becomes a companion, just in case you might see something or someone that needs to be photographed. It becomes a passion and an addiction to capture that moment as only you see it. A heartfelt thanks to all the members, who graciously encouraged me with there comments.. The favorites are a bonus & inspiration. something you might have seen in one of the favorites may remind you to look for a particular format or composition. They are a shared joy, compelling and insightful to become a better photographer.
