The journey begins…

My name is James and I take terrible pictures.¬†Aside from cell phones, I’ve never owned anything other than a disposable camera.

My goal is to get a photo published.

Along the way I plan on learning the basics of photography, finding a camera, learning what I don’t know, and taking a lot of photos.

Why the lofty goal? Why not settle for better profile pictures and photo albums? The specificity of the challenge will focus my attention; the difficulty will force me to delve deeper into the details and work harder. This blog is the accountability. If I don’t finish, the blog will sit incomplete forever.

Join me as I learn to photograph the world!
