7 children? You have a lot of kids to take pictures of ;)

Thats the reason you chose photography? :P

I went away from home for the first time when I headed off to college and my parents gave me a camera so I could send them shots of all the new things I was seeing.

I know this answer has been said... but it chosed me.
My first camera was a simple panasonic P&S when I was 7. But as a child I was only snapping pictures around the house. No biggie. Fast forward to several years later, after my husband and I were together we got our first digital P&S. We both used it. It wasn't until we traveled across the US for our honeymoon is when I realized how much I love photography. Most of the time I was using the camera and my husband used the videocamera. But he did get his turn on the camera itself. We were on the road for 2 months. :) When we came home, we bought our first DSLR Nikon D50. Before too long, my husband had to get his own, because I can't share. lol I remember searching online and learning photography. I came to realize what rule of thirds are, bokeh etc.. I looked back to the honeymoon pictures, stuff I shot before our honeymoon and my rule of thirds was good. There wasn't many subjects that was straight dead in the frame. I also remember chatting in a AOL message board. Bokeh was mention. At the time I didn't know what it was, so I posted a picture I took and asked if this was bokeh. As it turn out, it was. So I've been shooting the "correct" way for a long time, but never realized the terms. I just shoot what I think looks good.

I also enjoy taking pictures. It calms me. Especially of mother nature. landscapes, wildlife, flowers, macros. My husband says I'm like a kid in a candy store, when I see something I really want to photograph.

Pretty much my case. Actually I was born into it. Grandfather was a shutterbug and I got that gene. I have several photophiles in the family and one videographer. I started when I was 9 when my grandpa gave me one of his old 120 box cameras, I was doomed ever since.


I didn't find out until about a year before my grandfather died that he was a photographer when he was in the Navy. He continue the craft after the Navy, but not as his profession. He had so many cameras. I was able to touch a brownie and a couple other cameras, that I can not remember the names of.

I think what also helps for me, I grew up living in the country. (not farm country, but we had some land) I enjoy the outdoors. I can spend hours outside on a beautiful day.

Oh yea, and it's a much better high than some drug induced false reality.
