Saint Floridan Day

Hey, this time I decided to share few images that I took some time ago on Saint Floridan day during firefighters parade. Nothing too fancy. I was using Canon 60D and nifty fifty lens. Here are few images:

I noticed that other photographers were using telephoto zoom lenses. Guess these kind of lenses are the best choice for this kind event. Also after seeing photos I realized that I’m far from being a professional photographer. Composition of shots are really bad. Why would I take shots that look like that?

I don’t expect that every shot I take is going to be perfect, but then in one hundred pics there are  three or four that I like it’s not hard to get what is wrong. Still it was fun, running next to marching firefighters, catching breath, sweating through my shirt, getting to “that best spot” or taking image from “that best angle” was really good experience. There are some shots that I really like and I learned few things as well. If I could I would do it any day again.

Why anybody would be interested?

I asked myself a question today. Why this blog should be interesting to read? Or why my images should be interesting to look at? There are thousands if not tens of thousands bloggers, digital artists, photographers and models. Bigger part of them makes their content or works public and their blogs, digital works or photos are better than mine. So why in the world anyone will be interested in my stuff? I guess people shouldn’t be. I don’t even consider myself to be a true professional. Everything I do that I have mentioned above I do it for fun. I just enjoy it and it lets me grow as a person. Looking back two years I didn’t know how to create such digital manipulations nor had any idea what is shutter speed and now I know. Not only I improved my skills doing what I like, but I have grown as a person as well. I look at these things differently or from a different perspective. So this is my answer why anyone would be interested in what I do. All of it, it’s not only for you it’s for me as well. I want to learn more, be better at what I do and if I can give to others some knowledge or even help them to “grow” themselves using blogging, digital art, photography and modeling as a catalyst, that’s worthy reason for me.
