I've been taking photos for about 5 years and I really love it. My favorite thing is details - macrophotography, isolating a piece of landscape, part of a person's face, etc. I have my own translation business, a profession about which I am passionate! Evenings and weekends, though, I like to take photos as much as I can. My goal is to become a more creative, daring photographer. I want to learn to "look" at my subject before photographing it. I've learned to be patient through the years and to "let go" the bad photos. And now, instead of feeling discouraged with my lesser photos, I learn from them, I search for information on line to always improve. There is much to learn! I love my new 7D, I find it user friendly and comfortable to hold. I'm anxious (but patient) to learn to more.
