The first step... the first post...

I signed into Blogger over two months ago, and literally sat in front of the laptop for 20 minutes trying to figure out what I should blog about...   Honestly, I'm still not sure, so this is all a living breathing work in progress, or a blog in progress.

Today, I had to opportunity to meet up with some wonderful and talented photographers and accompany them on a midday impromptu photo shoot in Calgary's beltline.  Thanks to Elaine, for modeling for us.

Right away, I look at some of the pictures that I took and I say to myself "Hey, some of these are pretty good!!!"  Then I look at some of the pictures of the other photographers, who were at the same shoot, and I think "Hey, heir photos are amazing, artistic, gritty, real... professional... Why don't mine look that good?!?"

I guess for now, this blog will be a place to express my journey of learning the rules of photography, and at some point, finding the courage to thow them out the window and figure out what want to say through the lens.
Here are "Chekov's Angels", the other photographers from today, with how they saw today's shoot through their own lenses.
