June 7, 2010 / A Surviving Father

Amateur Photographer

An important aspect of being a father is maintaining and cultivating personal interests, and I mean beyond watching ESPN.  Since my job is very time intensive, activities that take me away from the family are frowned upon.  I therefore decided to delve into photography.  This hobby has had several benefits:

  1. I get to buy stuff!  Let’s face it, guys like to spend money, especially on gadgets.
  2. Family time.  I mainly take pictures of the kids.
  3. We save money.  Yes, the camera is an investment with a high upfront cost, but it is essentially the cost of three sessions with a professional photographer.

Future posts will explore the camera, composition, and post-processing.  Just remember that I am an amateur, so hopefully the photos will improve over time.
