It was the best decision outside of my career, it just opened my eyes to a world and opportunities to grow, learn and become better (Those who know me, they'll understand how big my smile can get when I talk about photography or my camera). I can't say that I'm a photographer, or hoping to one day become a professional. But it has definitely made me appreciate everything about life. Dreams don't just come when you wake up one morning, it takes hard work and faith for anything like this to become real. And studying a lot about the ugly terminology that comes with holding a camera, has made it also worthwhile. I suppose that comes with anything in life, physiotherapy being my prime example of studying for 14 exams in two weeks to now becoming a fully qualified physiotherapist, and working for almost two years now.
The more you go along this journey with me, if you choose to stay, I will appreciate every moment you decide to scroll down and read or look a little more.
|The first photograph I took of me & my camera. Nothing too special, but I did some editing on the computer to drain most of the colour out. Plus, I have to thank R for helping me make a logo.|
|My first lens 18-135mm 3.5-5.6, he was a heavy bugger, but such a nice zoom to those hard to reach places.|
|Recently just bought the 50mm 1.8 II this little baby is one of my favourite at the moment, it's nice to be able to take the focus out of a foreground and get some really nice Bokeh, plus this one's light enough to carry around in my pocket!|
|I bought this lens along with the above lens, I haven't experimented too much yet, but once I have enough time I'm sure this will be my new travel buddy! Can't wait to see what it can do!|
To me, I believe that photography is capturing a moment in one's life and sending a message or an emotion of that moment through the eyes for others to see and comprehend. Complex, I know. But that's probably why I dislike too much computer post-editing input, because people can just end up losing the reason why they wanted to take a photo. But, art is art, individuals are all different, and I'm inspired by anything regardless.
So, enough of my rambling, Dreams will come, it just takes one step at a time, or as a photographer will probably say, "One F-Stop at a Shutter."
