Patent art is quite popular these days… and, honestly, I love them all! After ooh-ing and aww-ing at some of the vintage patent prints I’ve seen around the web, I thought it was time to make a few of my own. So, this vintage camera patent art was born!
Since I started blogging, I’ve had to teach myself a lot of new skills. Things I never thought I would learn either. One large part of blogging is photography.
I remember taking a photography class in high school, but that was when digital cameras didn’t exist. We even processed our film in a dark room. I loved that class, but saw it as a fun learning experience — nothing more, nothing less. Sometimes I do miss using film, call me crazy. Anybody else miss that?
Eventually I got a point and shoot camera, nothing fancy. It was for capturing family adventures, the dogs, etc. I did use it in the beginning of my blogging adventures (don’t look back at 2012, gulp). However, then came the DSLR (a Canon Rebel). A whole new world of photography — and so much to learn.
Learning how to use that camera was a struggle, but I finally started to understand a few things and even upgraded my camera to Canon 6D. I’m always learning new things about lighting, settings, lenses and more.
I say all that to drive home the point that being self taught gives me a greater appreciation for the camera and photography. The moments that are captured from travel to recipes to our home, they all tell a story. They capture moments.
The best thing about a picture is that it never changes,
even when the people in it do.” -Andy Warhol

I’ll leave you with this quote by Mark Denman: “God creates the beauty. My camera and I are a witness.” Isn’t that awesome? I love it!
