WRITTEN WORDS -

MY ENTRANCE TO PHOTOGRAPHING


©Randi Måhl



A PHOTO

IS A PIECE OF A MAGIC MOMENT


As a little, little girl I was fascinated of the magic ability to catch a piece of moment and put it onto a piece of paper...by just using a camera.

A camera - became my highest wish. My father told me, that I first had to learn reading a camera manual and learn writing the camera settings for each and every shot in a small note book, before I could wish a camera.

Of cause I learned to read and write very quickly and my wish came through.

But the consequence was that I couldn´t understand why I needed to start going to school. I already had a job and an "income" by selling photos of the older girl´s boyfriends.


It´s no secret, that I´m still obsessed with my camera and the written words.

  5. The proverbial "they" say that a picture paints a thousand words. Have to say though that I like it best when images (including those taken by a camera) are paired together with some words -- like in this entry. :)

  11. Fint inlägg!
    Här har det inte snöat så mycket i natt, bara blåst, men nu snöar det, ut kommer vi just nu, men jag misstänker att det är kört längre fram i dag. Känns jobbigt efter förra vintern, men vackert är det..

  18. You have the art and skill of a tru photographer.

    Until now, I still have not read completely the camera's manual.

  19. I wish I'd kept that level of information when I was younger, it would have made me a much better photographer. Now it's all done by our digital cameras! Thanks for sharing this story.

  24. Loved this post. I know exactly what you mean. I suspect my picture quality would improve dramatically if I actually read the manual once and awhile. LOL

    Have a super weekend.
