Armchair Photography is all about the lessons of a girl with a camera and a propensity toward self study. It’s a veritable collection of trial and error, success and disappointment. My tips and advice are born from hands on experience, research and an honest evaluation of results. What follows is an account of my position on the learning curve to producing stunning photographs.
Armchair Photography means taking pleasure in the self study of photography. The point is not to get too serious while learning to reproduce the world around me through a photographic story. Your advice and stories are always welcomed and appreciated. I started this blog as a diary of sorts, but also as a source of inspiration for those of us who feel like their lives are a series of often missed photographic opportunities.
