Hi Everybody


, , , , ,

Note: The following post was originally written on my Blogger blog which was called “Annablog Goes Digital.” Since that time, I have moved that blog, and most of its contents, to my current domain, and the blog will be continued here at Anna Vera’s Photos.

Hi there everybody, my name is Anna. This is my first blog and it will be about photography because I’m a photography student.

Now, my photos are not the “wow-oh-my-god-amazing-how-did-she-do-that” type (unless, of course, you’re my mother, in which case everything falls under that catagory). But I will share some of my photos with you and maybe as time goes by we will see if I get any better. First I will tell you a little bit about my photographic history.

The first photograph I every took was very analogue. Why? Well, I think I was about 7, so it would have been 1982 or so, and in those days, we had film. Just film! No digital. Yep, I’m old, I remember when we only had film…

Anyway, my hands moved in a circle while I took the picture and I got this incredible swirling special-effect. Natural talent! These days, we would use a Radial Blur effect in Photoshop to create such a result! But when I was a kid, I didn’t need it.

And then – even when I was a teenager, I was still very analogue. I traveled around Europe and Asia with a little point-and-shoot camera – and I was very unelectronic. I didn’t even take indoor photos, because I didn’t want to bother with batteries for the flash. I also used to avoid taking pictures because I didn’t want to look like a tourist.

Of course, years later and having taken a stronger interest in photography, I just kick myself every time I think of that red Chinese sun rising up above the valley while I stood idly on a mountain top, taking no photos because I didn’t want to look like a tourist!

But those photos I did take, were definitely film, and there were few of them. I was saving film! (We STILL didn’t have digital cameras when I was a teenager – we didn’t even have email! I had to use telegraphs! See? I’m old.)

Times have changed, and I no longer shoot analogue photographs – well, not since I got a digital camera, that is. I guess it’s all for the best, because film costs money. Sometimes I take 400 photos in order to get one good shot – oh, oops, maybe I shouldn’t have told you that.

But anyway, since I went digital I definitely get a lot more practice. And hence the name of my blog! (My dad always told puns when I was growing up, I can’t help myself! I inherited it, it’s not my fault. He even called it “popcorn”… Do you get that?)

Now I have some photos to post here, but unfortunately blogger is not allowing me to do so at the moment. Maybe photo upload services are under maintainence… I will try again later…

So there’s my first entry into my first weblog. I hope I did okay. I will try to make time to come back and add more photos as time goes on…

Love, Anna
