About this site
This site is about seeing.
I’ve been taking pictures, like most of us, since I was a little kid with a variety of cameras on vacation, when out with friends, etc. I’ve never been what I would consider “serious” about it until the fall of 2009 or so, when I purchased my first “real” camera – a Canon G10.
It wasn’t long till I discovered that while the G10 was flat out awesome for taking pics of things that don’t move, it’s not so hot for anything that moves, like dogs, people doing something other than portrait type pictures, and damn sure wasn’t fast enough to keep up with taking pictures of shooters and their trade.
A few months later, I broke down and bought a Canon Rebel XS. And loved it! But soon discovered that this wonderful little camera, which is probably more than enough camera for 95% of the population, wasn’t going to work for me.
For you see, I pretty much destroy everything I touch and I knew that the Rebel’s body would not put up to the abuse that I would heap upon it during camping trips and thrown in and out of range bags at the shooting range.
I eventually moved up to a set of two – one 7D that I usually use with a 70-200 and my latest camera – a 5DMkIII that usually sports a 17-40 lens…. I still have a G camera, but I’ve moved on to the G12 and I recently picked up a little point and shoot that is shock proof and waterproof that I take with me on moto rides.
This blog is a work in progress, as is my skill at seeing.
Come along for the ride, it’ll be fun!
