What?

For a long time I’ve been craving for a digital SLR camera – and finally, one week ago, the angel of camera death took my precious Canon PowerShot S60 from me thus leaving no choice – DSLR it had to be.

I’ve always loved my canon cameras – from my first – the Canon PowerShot A20 (a 2.1 MP wonder – bulky as hell, but with four neat AA batteries), the second, a Canon PowerShot S50 (oh sweet jesus – this one was great – but unfortunately it got stolen) and finally the Canon PowerShot S60 (paid for with insurance money, faster, wider lens – great camera). Of course the only natural next step was a Canon – and because it had to be a DSLR, my budget was tight and I’m a first time DSLR user, the entry level camera Canon EOS 400D (Digital Rebel XTi) was an almost obvious choice.

Again, my budget was tight – so I went with the kit deal – including a 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens and bought a EF 50mm f/1.8 on the side (and of course a 2 GB fast CF card). This should be an adequate starting point for me – upgrades will come in time.

This site will be my diary, an insight into my development as an amateur photographer.

Why?

Visual art has always fascinated and motivated me greatly, whether it being digital graphics design, painting, installations or photography – I have indeed thrown, and will continue to throw, myself at a couple of those approaches.

This photoblog will act as a motivator for developing my skills as a photographer. In an attempt to post new photos each day this site, and its audience, will exist as an unwritten contract between me and my goal; a goal not well defined – but with the purpose of training and exploration of my creative being.

Hopefully, in time, this photoblog will be a testimony to my progress from a newborn inexperienced photo enthusiast to a somewhat skilled amateur photographer.
