Setting sail on this journey to photography feels like a heartwarming reunion with an old friend – my Canon camera, a cherished gift from my filmmaking father over a decade ago. Life's whirlwind of raising my delicious daughters, Sahana and Dylana, had me trading lenses for lullabies. But now, as I step into my “study era”, a newfound passion for product photography ignites my creativity. Through the lens, I'm not only capturing textures and details; I'm encapsulating memories and stories, a skill I feel was more passed down to me than learned. The classroom has become a haven of inspiration, where peers and I, amplify each other's artistic strengths. Amidst the camaraderie, my styling flair has found its home, intertwining with the talents of those around me. And the teachers – luminaries of expertise and encouragement – sprinkle each lesson with a dash of optimism, turning each click of the shutter into a whisper of possibility.
A lovely friend shared Pinterest with me recently. I don't quite know how to navigate around it, or what its all about, but I do know that I now have the easiest way to catch images that inspire me everyday. I gather that its like instagram or twitter where you can share and re-pin posts - I just havent gotten that far yet. When you sign up you download a Pin It tab to your nav bar, so when I'm surfing my favourite blogs, I can capture the images that most inspire me to one page - something like this: You can follow my pin board , sign up and start your own. I have found it very useful, and hopefully soon I'll get the gist of how it actually works
