I’ve wanted to get behind the lens for a while, but was still surprised by how much I am enjoying it. That is, once I got over the initial amazed bewilderment that something with lots of buttons can give you.
Now that The Camera and I are better acquainted, I’m really enjoying looking at life through the four corners of a rectangle. It’s a far more palpable and instinctual form of documentation than sticking a recorder in someone’s face. You do get in the weirdest positions and can look rather creepy at times (telephoto stalker lens, anyone?) but that’s its own kind of fun.
You can never be quite sure what your style will be when trying something new, but it’s so great discovering that. I still have a whole lot to learn, but love that I get to round off my studies and time here in Grahamstown this way.
