I will happily tell anyone that I ONLY use my digital SLR on automatic. Actually, strike that, I use my digital SLR on auto, without the flash, because it makes me feel a little fancier and I am NOTHING if not a show pony. I can happily snap away, pretending all the while that I have a “good eye” and take better shots than the average Tania, Diane or Harriet.
Except that I don’t.
Today I attended Tim’s first ever Nursery Workshop. It was a one off chance for novice’s like myself to learn something from a true talent. He is someone special, and as much as he could give us advice, teach us steps and technical aspects, no one can teach that eye. That connection. The pure love and talent that the man has. I was honoured to be a part of it and what I learnt today is the start of a real love and appreciation for photography and F stops that I know will be with me for all my days.
I am starting from the very beginning. I have no idea. I have a whole lot more of an idea tonight, than I did this morning, but it’s just the very start. I can’t wait to really get going on this. And I hope you don’t mind the gazillion snaps imma share with you along the way.
And Tim and Kesh? Thank you. So much.
This is us. The first students. And yes, Tim did take this one. You can tell can’t you?
