Kel Kyle, is an award winning photographer and founder of Backyard Shots. After years away from the camera (remember film?), they returned in late 2010 armed with a point & shoot. Within months they upgraded to a DSLR (Canon 50D) and made it a point to shoot everyday, even if it was in their own backyard.
“In the leaves and trees, and critters of your backyard, you have a treasure trove of photographic opportunities”.
There's so much opportunity to create images inside our homes and outside too. I encourage you to take some time, sit outside with your camera and become another inhabitant in your backyard.
The first time I held a professional camera was when I was earning my photography badge in girl scouts. One of my leaders loaned me a Pentax (it was film in those days, y'all).
