Hi, all. I’m not a photographer, and I certainly hope I’m not a fauxtographer — strictly a hobby snapper who is slowly and surely learning what the little P&S she bought at a garage sale for $20 (and editing software) can do. I’ve joined this site because most of the submissions make me feel better about my own amateur efforts, and because I hope to pick up some tips here and there. Hope you’ll let me stick around!
I probably fall into faux nor pro – though maybe not now – I ended up creating a photography page on FB (cringe) so the middle school football team kids and parents can tag each other, etc., without having a ton more friends on my FB feed. My FB is already so big that I lose track of people sometimes that are important to me.
(and I’m more worried y’all will consider me faux than suddenly listing myself as “pro” – I don’t have the chops yet for people to call me pro, though a few really successful photographers are actually kind of mentoring me and being very encouraging, much to my surprise!)
