I am an amateur. An amateur amateur. This blog is dedicated to those of us who may never own a "fancy camera" (see my wish list), have the luxury of attending a photography class, or find a blessing in the form of a photographer friend. What we do have is a desire to capture, for our progeny, moments in our history that convey our story, our emotions, our thoughts, and our aspirations. As we start seeing our stories speak to people, we sometimes desire to branch out and tell other's stories.
It is my hope to ignite and encourage fellow amateur-amateur photographers to tell their stories. One day history will be blessed
Darcien Balog (that's me) started as an amateur-amateur at everything in life. She started making renaissance clothing 20+ years ago and by 2013 had reached a skilled professional status. And so it has been with almost everything in her life, from schooling her children at home to crafting for resale to writing novels.
