About The Amateur Photographer

There are multiple definitions of the word amateur.  When it comes to photography, I am, by several of these definitions, an amateur.  It’s something that I genuinely enjoy doing, but I am neither paid for it, nor am I particularly skilled.  I realize that I have much work to do in both taking and editing photographs.  More skilled photographers and photo editors could likely do much better with the same subjects and photos, respectively.  However, I also realize that the only way to improve my skill in photography is to go out and shoot.

‘The Amateur Photographer’ will be a regular segment on this blog.  Each entry will feature photographs taken in different places.  I will also give my personal observations, ideas, interpretations, and reflections on many of the photographs posted.

In addition to getting out with my camera, receiving feedback, positive or negative, is a way to learn and improve.  Thus, I genuinely welcome feedback and comments.  Thank you.  I hope you enjoy each edition of ‘The Amateur Photographer’.
