In an attempt to pursue a hobby that does not involve a heap of monitor staring, I decided to get more serious about photography.  I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures, but I wanted to get deeper into the process.  So, I saved up some money and purchased a used Canon 30D from a friend back in March.  In the months that followed, I noticed myself passing through several stages as I got used to photography as a hobby rather than just image capture.  In retrospect, I thought they were rather funny.  I’ll share them over the next few blog posts.
