Here’s a pic my mom took of me on one of our first photography hikes:
On December 26, 2015, we went out shooting at Cherry Creek State Park to test it out. I looked across the lake and saw a bald eagle on the other side. I pointed and tried to find it, but couldn’t, I was just too unsteady, plus the camera didn’t have a viewfinder, so I was trying to find my subject using the LCD only. We came across a perching red-tailed hawk, and I tried to take a few photos as it flew off. But, the frames per second rate was also not fast enough to capture it, so I could not photograph many birds in flight. (Which is what I REALLY wanted to do, and it quickly became my favorite.)
Here’s me trying to use my point and shoot:
My first day out with the new gear:
Here’s one of my early shots of Harold, the red-tailed hawk.
So, that’s how I got started! Now, are you ready to see some of my favorite shots??
I like to take photos at high shutter speeds just in case something excitedly random happens all of a sudden!
