March 2019 Photographer of the month Fred Monk

    In 2005 I registered for a five-day Beginners Camera Workshop and, just three days before, I bought my first camera (Canon Rebel).  I had never used such a “complicated” instrument, and the 40+ hour workshop, though exhausting, was a great way for me to lean the basics.
     These days, my camera bag includes a Canon 5D Mark lll, Canon R, and a variety of lenses.  In recent years I have completed several online courses and have continued to learn from friends and Google searches.  The best lesson I’ve learned came from a workshop presenter who said, “Your photography will improve considerably when you stop shooting what you think others will like, and begin shooting what you find most interesting.” So true! I enjoy capturing images from a wide range of subjects as you will see on my website: www.fredmonk.zenfolio.com
