So while we were in Natchez, Mississippi, I grabbed Tom’s camera and played photographer for a while. I had been toying with the idea of taking up photography for sometime and wanted to see what it was like being on the other side of the lens.
It is a lot harder then it looks.
My college sweetheart was a photographer whose name was also Tom. Apparently today, he is on the Dallas Morning News photography staff and his work has earned him a Pulitzer Prize amongst manyother awards. I obviously didn’t marry that Tom but later met a different photographer by the name of Tom and married him. It is clear that I have a type that I am attracted. Tom’s who carry cameras. I have spent my entire adult life around photography and can compose a shot as good as any one but I can’t shoot the picture. I don’t know the mechanics of a camera.
So this week while in Natchez, I picked up Tom’s camera and took my first photo. I would love your honest feedback. How did I do? Let me know on our Facebook page
