About Elegant Delight Photography

My name is CJ Pietri and I am from Colorado. I have started this blog so that anyone that is interested in my photography can follow me here. I will post some of my favorite pictures with some commentary about them or about how I took them to give people a little insight about each photo. I will also post other photography (maybe getting off topic sometimes) related posts and tips to try and help other people who are trying to take better pictures as well. I realize I am not a professional photographer but I think that I can help other photographers with tips and tricks that I pick up by reading and just practicing this art on a daily basis. I have been interested in photography since high school when I started with a film SLR, but didn't really get into until a couple of years ago when I bought my first DSLR. I am trying to get better at taking meaningful pictures everyday, which has proven to be a long journey, but I believe I am growing on a daily basis. If you enjoy any of the pictures please do not hesitate to comment. You can see all of my favorite work at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/squeege40/
