I bought my first camera, a second hand Nikon D60, about 7 years ago. Since then I’ve taken several thousand photos in a lot of different environments. Unfortunately, I haven’t had any motivation to pick up the camera and get out and shoot for the past couple of years. That is, until recently. I am finally settling down after moving across the country and its time to jump back into things.
I’ve been going through old photos and have decided to do a sort of recap of my photography and where it has taken me.
It all starts here, I took this photo on a group photo shoot set up by some people on the local car forum. This was about a month after buying my first camera and I met a handful of really helpful people, a few of which I am still good friends with.
From there, I took every opportunity I could to shoot my friends cars. the photos were bad.
and even worse.
But I kept on shooting, taking advice from others, and getting better. I met a lot of really cool people and really cool cars.
Some friends faded.
Others became lifelong friends.
I found lots of excuses to travel to Sebring and meet new people.
I got the chance to work with a few blogs
And even had a feature in S3 Magazine.
Looking back on all these good times and good people, I cant really say why I lost interest. After thinking back on these times, and dusting off the camera for a trip to Final Bout 2, I think I have found the passion I lost for photography and will get back into the swing of things.
