About

My name is Mindy and as you have already surmised by now this is my 365 Day Photo Project that was inspired by several friends and my love of photography. I have enjoyed taking photos for almost as long as I can remember. They are the scrapbook to my life and the keeper of my memories. Unfortunately my friends were forced to be the subject of my obsession until 2006 when my sister and I started going to a lot of concerts together and I realized that photography was more than just a hobby, it was my passion.

I found myself standing for hours with my camera posed and ready to go just waiting and then eventually anticipating special moments on stage. It wasn’t about taking as many photos as I could, it was about waiting for that one shot that I knew would happen and in those moments I was more patient than I had ever been in my life. If you know me you know that is saying a lot.

Since then my passion and sometimes obsession for taking photos has began to take on a life of its own and add to that my discovery of Photoshop, and well you can see where this is going. I am hooked for lack of a better term. I see photos every where I go and while concert photography would be my dream job I love taking photos of still life and finding a different way to look at the world. When someone says to me “I never would have thought something like that could be beautiful” that is the greatest compliment I can think of to get and hopefully this project will help me to develop into the photographer I want to become.

I will take this opportunity to get acquainted with my camera and get to know who I am as a photographer. I look forward to your comments and even your criticism because that is the only way I will get better.  I have no doubt that I will come out on the other side of this quite different than when I started and I thank all of you for coming along for the ride.
