My Passion by Suzanne Hunter
02nd February 2017
In case you're wondering why I'm standing here with all this gear

Photography is my passion, I've loved it for many a year.


At the ripe old age of 49, I enrolled and started college

To get more out of my Nikon and to increase my f-stop knowledge.


Who knew there was so much to it - it's not just point and click,

There are f-stops, ISOs and apertures - now things that make me tick.


I'm halfway through my HNC and it's one helluva learning curve,

But I'm glad I've taken this chance, to improve the thing that I love.


So I'm focusing on the positives - taking time to stop and see

And if I get a crap negative, I'll try 'til I get the look for me.


We've just started our Graded Unit - at least 10 photos on a theme,

I'm doing my best and to pass my HNC would be a dream.

Suzanne.
Because life is like a camera - here's what you should do -

Focus on what's important, capture the times that are good for you.


Develop from the negatives, put faith in what you've got

And if things simply don't work out ......... take another shot.
