I am mostly a musician (classical piano). I've done some photography in the past, but found that it was too difficult to get good shots.
I always had ideas of what I wanted to create, but I rarely ever found the perfect scenes. Out of the thousands of street photos I've shot, I have one I think is great; and a couple more that I feel are acceptable.
Now there is photo manipulation. I use GIMP, which is an open-source program similar to PhotoShop. I am just now getting into it, learning how to use the many tools it has. With GIMP, my own photos, and stock that I can include, I expect to be able to finally put together images that are clear (more or less) in my brain, but were having trouble being born.
I'm a student. Right now I don't know much of anything. That's OK. Everyone starts out not knowing how to do it. Some day I hope I'll be good at this. But for sure, I'm going to have fun.
If you find fault with my work, I would GREATLY APPRECIATE it if you could point out my mistakes. Even better would be telling me where I can go to learn more about them.
