Behind the Moment: Photographer Stories | Angie's 365

Tuesday, October 07, 2014



As part of Catch the Moment 365 we are featuring participants of the project monthly. Angie of Angie's Angle has been participating in the project since it started at the beginning of the year. I’m so happy to share her photography story with you today. Be sure to comment and show her some love today!



When and how did you discover and fall in love with photography?

I've been in love with photography for as long as I can remember. I remember growing up being in love with looking at the photo albums around the house, no matter how many times I looked through them I was always taken back and would find something new in them. 

I have to say as an adult though, my true love of photography bloomed full force when we buy a Nikon D500 for us. I was so excited to get amazing photos to always treasure and looked forward to learning the camera and all its features. Now though several years later and I still haven't even touched the advance features on the camera.
I think one of the most amazing places to go and take a million photos is an old castle somewhere. Even the old houses we walk by in our neighborhood I tell my husband I so want to see the inside of that house and that house. I have a thing with being inside an old house with its history and quirks. So many stories to be told and have been told. 
It doesn't have to be an exact place, just somewhere old and amazing.



If you could take a photo walk anywhere in the world where would you go and who would you bring with you?

So many places come to mind, but the person always by my side is my husband.



Who/What are your favorite photography subjects?

While I love taking pictures of people, my thing seems to be flowers. I love taking pictures of flowers and tend to think I do a pretty good job at capturing them. I especially get excited when I catch some kind of bug in the flower and they pop out in the photo.

Is there anything you hope to accomplish in regards to photography in the next year?

Beginning Catch the Moment 365 this past year one of my goals was to learn my manual mode more and while I have played with it some I don't think I have actually learned a thing. I need to find a way to actually learn and start using that manual feature and really advance myself. I'd also like to get myself a macro lens to take even more amazing flower pictures.




A little more from Angie about her 365 experience: 


Starting this Catch the Moment 365 journey got me excited.  I had tried to do a month theme challenge before and completely failed, so I was hoping that I wouldn't fail for this huge challenge.  Taking a single photo every day seemed easy.  But there are nights where its 11 and I am getting ready for bed and realize oh no I haven't gotten a photo yet.  So I scramble to get something.  Not having kids and taking this journey seems harder to me, yes I have a four-legged baby and take quite a few photos of her, but I try to add in some splashes of different cause no one wants to see a full 7 days of Roxy.  Especially when they are all seem almost the same.  

I am happy to say I have made it this far and I see no problem me making it the whole year.  Who knows I may just continue on taking a single photo every single day after this challenge.  Maybe I'll find another yearly challenge to take part in, because its sure help keeping me on point getting those photos every day.  I have captured some amazing photos just by being reminded that I need a photo today.  I have to admit that I haven't been great with the commenting on everyone's lovely photos in the link-ups like I thought I would be since I do love going to see others photos, which I am not sure why besides sometimes feeling overwhelmed with what I feel I have to do or even want to do.
My love of photos has been with me for as long as I can remember, as I noted in the questions.  I love taking them, I love seeing my own photos and I love seeing others photos.  Which is one thing I love about facebook seeing all the photos people post.  I actually started scrapbooking several years back because my love of all things photos.  I did that for several years in the old fashion of paper and have several albums to show for it, but somewhere along the line I either got busy or just lazy and haven't touched my paper scrapbooking supplies in ages.  I really want to change that because I think there is something amazing about having an album all done up and documenting those special moments to look back at with ease.


This journey has been amazingly fun for me though and I look forward to the rest of the year and see what I can capture.  Bringing my camera with me everywhere has almost become habit, which I love. I love that I have captured some of the things I wouldn't normally and laugh at some of the photos I ended up taking because I needed a photo for the day.

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
