Amaretta Ames is my alias. I am using an alias because I don’t want to leave evidence of my ample photography mishaps connected to my real name. I am a amateur camera owner who is striving to learn photography and take good photos.
I’ve owned a Canon EOS Rebel T-3 since November 2011 and still have trouble finding my way around the settings.
I also own two Canon point-and-shoots (SX110 and Powershot A95) and was content to go on taking snapshots with them for years.
Then I got it into my head that I wanted to take “photographs,” and good ones, instead of snapshots. So I bought the T-3 and life has never been the same. Classes followed. More equipment. Software. Photo meetups. Reading. Viewing.
I have caught the photography bug. Seriously.
However, I’m not close to being a “photographer.”
But I’d like to be a photographer. Eventually.
