Hello!
My name is Amy and this is my page!
Although my work is quite low standard, I am willing to give things a go! My friends aren't into photography much so they find it funny how I whizz my phone or camera out every now and then to take a photo of such small things. Of course they are used to taking photos on holidays and other special events, so they don't really see things the way I do!
My dad introduced me to photography. All the big fancy cameras! I always wanted to have a go! I asked one day if I could give his big canon a go and surprisingly he handed it over! As I'm not the sort of person who asks about things and would much prefer to find things out for myself, I sat there fiddling around with it for a while pressing all the buttons! I ended up taking many random pictures that were all deleted but they were all focused. I fell in love with photography after that!
I then joined an after school club. This encouraged me however the teacher running it really didn't like me and only liked me for the photos I took, so I was knocked back a lot as she really wasn't very nice to me about my work. However, joining this club really showed me the path to follow. I then found this website and I am gradually improving (I hope)! I look back at my first few photos on here and think about how I thought they were good at the time hehe! (I think that means I'm improving and seeing things differently!)

Hehe
I just realised how long this was!
It isn't often I get to talk about this stuff! None of my friends really get how I see images in almost everything! But they are still amazing people to have!
I am thankful to those who are showing me the way and helping me out, as my work still has quite a bit of room for improvement!Wink
Thank You!

    Thank you!
    Your advise was very helpful!
    Hehe, I saw two of my friends having a laugh and I just thought it was a nice little picture to take
    It wasn't planned at all! I just thought it was a great moment to catch!
    I used a free app called camera360. I love this app, it has loads of effects that can make any picture look good, but for this image i just added a few tiny tiny details and then made it even better with your help!
