Chicken
Cmon Alex , (your shots crap on mine!)
Im sure you have a family fav or one you have done that is pivotal to You or your views in life

Ill post my year 8 self portrait at the end of the week with all its cracks and home made woolen jumper feel to it.

Just the sort of stuff that got you alienated in early high school ? :)

PS. It was the one tech study you could do that involved thinking outside the square at the time,

and it gave you more training than boxing ! :) :) :)

If I could find it, I would put up the (cough) photo essay I did at the local A&P show (agricultural and postural) for my Boy Scouts photography badge.

Taken with a Diana camera. (I was soo retro back then)

It was shot on Adox film which was a cracker of the era.

I did a couple of weeks of photography in year twelve and promptly left school for the theatre! My first camera was a couple of years back, when I got my 1100D.

Nothing that's a family fave, nobody else here likes the stuff that I love! I don't do people at all, not even family, well, I will get them in frame if they get in the way of me capturing a scene or thing.

Nothing that's been printed (deliberately by me) or published and nothing I would ever write about in a CV for sure.

This image below, is the first one that I had printed for me as a gift of a small picture book from the family, with the best images from my first year of captures. That actually moved me to seeing an image in print come to life and to see the play of light for the first time.

It was taken handheld and just using available light, with the lowly old 1100D, quite early on a Winters morning in the backyard. It was my "eureka" moment for playing with light and has been to blame for my continued vigour and bombardment of you all with my endless imagery...

Is that what you were after, Eden?

I never did photography at school like the rest of you guys but I do go way back I wouldn't have a clue what my first shot was but the first shot I have had published well that was only a few weeks ago but I am not sure the readers section of the Advertiser counts lol.

Wow, that's my favorite portrait shot I've seen of yours.

There is something cozy about it that gives me the warm fuzzies.

That is better than I could have wished for Alex and makes that Dandy Lion capture quite a special shot with the story behind it accentuating my interest in it.

Bombard away mate!

I can see why that one would be a game changer for you.
