the Journey

   Photo by Stephen Elliot

I consider this photo to be a real turning point in my photography skills. (I can only say that because I’m posting it a year and a half after it was taken). It was the first sunrise shoot I ever did. Honestly there is nothing particularly fancy about it. I just got down as low as I could and fired a couple frames. The camera did all the work, but as soon as I saw it I knew I had a winner. For the first time I felt like I had a photograph that was truly “mine” –an expression of myself as an artist, not just a hobbyist any more.

And so it is with this photo that I start my photo blog…
