Last year, I snapped about 15,000 digital photographs with my Canon S70. A little more than half are posted on my Flickr acccount. I have always wanted to learn how to really use my camera and in good faith on every long distance trip, I pack the manual. Yet...something about the manual really turns me off. I'm more of an experiemental hands-on kind of learner. I need to poke and prod. And yet, a year and a half into clicking away, I'm still not very S70-educated.
Not too long ago, I stumbled across the awesome photo know-how site, Photojojo. I signed up for their self-proclaimed "damn fine photo newsletter" and they delivered as promised. Photojojo writes with a very simple to comprehend and can-do attitude. I am actually learning from their newsletter and feel less intimidated by my camera. I totally heart them.
On Friday I received a nice surprise in my inbox. Photojojo had profiled my side art experiment, the FakeFunk Jump Project. They're saying, jumping is a great way to capture more natural smiles. And of course, I totally agree!
