Someone once ask me, “In your opinion what is the best translation of the Bible?” My answer was, “The one you will read every day.”
Cameras are like that too, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, DSLR, Point and Shoot, whatever. The best one for you is the one you will get out and use.
My experience began in 1958 when I purchased a Polaroid camera. Being able to see the photo I just took blew me away. I wore out several of the cameras and the pictures faded away pretty fast too. Then on to a Pentax Spotmatic 35mm, I still enjoy putting a roll of slide film in it and going out to take pictures. But enough reminiscing and on to the point I want to make.
That point is this, you don’t have to be a world traveler to take Masterpiece Photos, Start in your own backyard, your own city, your own county then your own state. Purchase a digital camera and shoot, shoot, shoot. Take several shots of the subject at hand, keep the good and erase bad and the ugly. That would make a good movie title wouldn’t it?
I have discovered that all the beauty spots in the world have already been photographed at least a million times. I go to California and take a bunch of pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge and guess what they all look like someone else beat me to that angle or lighting.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go and do it, but if you want your own style and have a tight budget go local.

I need to set a goal to keep me motivated, for the past several months Ruth and I have been working on all the covered bridges in
So what are you waiting for? Keep that camera with you all the time.
