Recently, one of the younger photo enthusiasts in the Guyana Photographers FB group, uploaded a photo and mentioned that she was “Adding to the clothes-clips shot collection”, and it carried me back several years to one of my earlier photos (back when almost everything was a family snapshot). It was one of the earliest photos that Nikhil thought has some artistic merit, or as Naseem might say “artsy”.
For me, photography was “I shoot what I like”, but as the years went by it became more about trying to shoot what I like “a little better”, pay more attention to composition, to the elements in the photo and to the way I process and present the photograph.
So here is the photo from 2007, back when I had started shooting the Canon PowerShot S3 IS, although it is not an SLR, it gave me more control than a compact point and shoot (although at the time it didn’t seem to matter that much to me, it was just fun)

So this post has me thinking to go back to some of my older photos and see what used to make me happy in my photography. There is so much more thought that goes into our photography now that I can’t help feel that looking back will bring some pleasure 🙂
Dude, going back every once in a while is worth it, not only do you see what you’ve accomplished in the time, but you actually find a few photos that were overlooked… 🙂
