I’ve wanted to have a hobby for so long! I really wanted to find something I’d be good at so I would be able to say “I did that!” and be proud of myself. Photography has been an interest of mine for as long as I can remember. I never thought it would be possible for me after my accident though. After reading the quote, “Never give up on something you can’t go a day without thinking about,” I realized that I needed to figure it out somehow. I decided to finally purchase my first camera! Little did I know, there are touch screen cameras that you can also connect to your phone. That makes it 100% easier for me! The best ways I’ve figured out for me to take pictures are :
1. Set my camera somewhere, use a timer, and use my phone to adjust all the settings & take the picture.
2. Put the camera strap around my neck & set the camera on a book in my lap (so my knees aren’t in the picture), then I can touch wherever on the camera screen to take a picture.
3. If I need to hold the camera at an angle for a picture, I will set the timer on 10 seconds to give me enough time to use both of my hands to hold it.
I’m not always at the best angle & sometimes I miss some really good shots, but that just makes me much more excited when I do get a good shot! I might wake up sore the next day because I swear my camera weighs a thousand pounds, but it’s totally worth it. If you really want to do something, you can figure out a way to make it possible. Don’t give up on something that could make you happy!
