Let the games begin…

Hi, my name is Brian and I am an amateur photographer.

(from the ether: “Hi, Brian…”)

I have a secret. That is that I don’t really know what I’m doing behind a camera. But I love taking pictures. Really, REALLY love taking pictures. I have 39,000 image files to prove it. But only recently have I married my geek side with my photographer side, and started to learn about why my photos do what they do–and what I can do to make them better.

Difference between me and a lot of other budding photographers? I don’t want to do this for a living–or even for a significant paycheck. If someone wants to buy an image for commercial use I’ll struggle with that decision, and ultimately I will most likely decline…since that’s the domain of so many pros out there trying to make it in a tough business (and who likely work a lot harder than I ever will at it). But if you want a print to hang on your wall, we can probably barter!

So here’s to the beginning of a long run of sharing and writing about pictures. Come back often and check it out!

About Brian Angelo

I am an amateur photographer with no designs on going "pro." I just want to learn, and I suspect there are a lot of others who have the same aspirations. So I'm here to share what I've learned, and some of my favorite shots AND favorite mistakes. Learn along with me!
