I’m about to do what every blogger has done before me by introducing a “photo of the week” post to our Outdoor Artwork category here at KayakDave.com. This summer, I’ve endeavored to take my outdoor photography to the next level. This adventure started with the sale of my whitewater kayak (sad, I know) in order to secure the funds for my new Canon Rebel T2i DSLR camera and an assortment of lenses to complement my old, waterproof point-and-shoot camera.
I found myself armed with a serious camera and some sort of artistic intuition which powered me to find some good shots. However, I was completely ignorant to the intricacies and technicalities of photography as a science and art and this was clearly holding me back. These shortcomings inspired me to take a class in digital photography with Graham Custard at the Plymouth Center for the Arts. Graham got me up to speed on the basics and introduced me to some great area photographers for further mentorship. I’m certain that I’ll never look at the outdoor world in the same light again!
Henceforth, every Wednesday I’ll post a photo of something that caught my eye during my outdoor ramblings. I look forward to sharing this adventure with you and welcome constructive criticism and any outdoor photos that you would like to showcase.
