I'm not sure how I found the Chic Critique Forum. It's a pretty cool place for me to creep and gawk at the photography of professionals while learning how to use some of their techniques. Lately I have been referring to myself as a "Momographer" a word I picked up on the internet- and I'd have to say it sums me up nicely. Basically it's a mom who, you know, bought a fancy camera when the baby was born and now feels like a seasoned natural. Wellllll my head is on straight and I'm aware that I'm not anything but a paparazzi for my kids. Someday maybe I will take a class or further my interest but for now I'm relying on my creative eye and passion. Those should count for something no?
Which brings me to Chic Critique. I found them on pinterest and then on facebook. I saw a contest called Photography Idol and thought hey, why not? So I'm entering a photo. Here it is:
The one on the right is mine and the other is her good friend Bode. His mom and I (along with my 2 week old strapped to my chest) snuck onto this field, crossing the highway and getting approached by the police just to snap this photo! It was fun, exhilarating and memorable. Trains, kids, the vintage feel- what's better than that?
Go check out Chic Critique and take a look at the other photos- they are fabulous, but what do I know, I'm just a Momographer ;)
