Photography is one of those hobbies that I say I do but really have no idea about. So basically, just like every other hipster with an iPhone, I too have succumbed to the taking of kinda pretty pictures and then filtering them through instagram, etc and calling myself a 'photographer'. I do actually have a pretty decent Nikon D80 that I also use (-plea of credibility-).
My uncle gave me the old D80 a couple years ago when he upgraded to a new camera. I've read the manual, although it's incredibly confusing to a beginner, and learned about focal points and the different lens capabilities. It was all very math-y, which is fine by me.
I supposed more than anything, I like taking pictures of light. Especially fall light. It ranges so much since Alberta is relatively far north; from pale white in the morning to syrup golden in the evenings.
Really though, photography is about the pictures. So see them above!
