The First Step Is To Do Something

Welcome to the first blog post of  My name is John Wineberg and i'm addicted to photography!  Response:  Hi John!  The first step in my, many step, program to recovery is to finally share my photos with the world.  

My wife gave me this rose along with 11 others years before we were married.  I knew it would wither and have to be thrown away.  By taking a picture of it I was able to keep that memory alive.  This is the perspective of my photography.  For me, the goal with each photo is to capture the essence of what I was feeling at that moment in time and to also share that moment with others, hoping that it will resonate with them in some way.  To me photography is a thief of time.  A camera can steal a moment and keep it and that moment can be enjoyed again and again.  I know, sounds like a cliche but I love it.  

In this blog I will be sharing my most current shoots, information on photography websites, my gear choices and whatever strikes my fancy that is photography related.  In other words, it's all about photography.  I hope, that besides sharing what i'm shooting, this space becomes a place where I can teach and learn as well.  Please feel free to share your thoughts, questions, critique or anything else that you think might be interesting or spur a conversation.  

So you actually read to the send me a message and let me know what you think, I look forward to it!
