Aim and Fire Friday

Aim and Fire Friday posts are designed specifically for the amateur photographer who wants to learn to take better photographs but doesn’t have fancy equipment. All of the photos in the Aim and Fire Friday posts are taken with a Nikon Coolpix E995 unless otherwise noted.

What do you do when you get to have the most darling little girl spend time with you? You take pictures!

Regardless of how inadequate you feel your camera is to do the moment justice, I would encourage you to go for it anyways! A lot (if not most) of what makes a good photographer isn’t the camera but the talent. A professional photographer can take a photo with a basic camera that would outshine any amateur with fancy equipment.

The ability to tell a story is one of a photographer’s greatest skills. For some it is more natural, for others it takes practice, but for both it is essential. Your pictures needs to tell your audience about the person not just what they look like. They need to give your audience a taste of who your subject is not just how they appear.

As a photographer it is important that you know the feeling you want to evoke and the story you want to tell.

So, back to our original question, “What do you do when you get to have the most darling little girl spend time with you?” You take pictures! You take them with whatever camera you have and you tell your story seen by your viewer through her huge brown eyes and sweet personality expressed in her little face.
