Right now, I’m hooked on taking photos. It’s really fun to take a stroll around my neighborhood with my camera. My pictures are record of my life and I enjoy shooting flowers, clouds, scenes, just about any every day occurrences.
When it comes to the result, my pictures are not as good as what I wanted to have. Somebody might say; you’ll pick it up as you go along. That’s true, but I hope it doesn’t take very long to be a skilled non-professional photographer.
Fortunately enough, I had this opportunity that dramatically improve my photo shooting skills by hanging out with some photo manias. I enjoyed walking and shooting with some photo manias who are versed in both equipment and techniques. It was very nice for me to see what kind of cameras they use, how they find their interesting objects and how they frame their images into their photos. I’ve learned a lot from them.
Speaking about equipment, people prefer to use hi-spec cameras as they get more skillful. The cameras the photo manias own are obviously single-lens reflex. Besides, most of them carry multiple lenses and use them apart depending on the image they pursue. I’d like to think that good photographs don’t always come from a hi-spec camera, but I might as well buy a new one with a high caliber.
After the walk, we showed our best shot to each other. We were at the same place at the same time and we all saw the same things, but we felt different ways. It was exciting to know there are a variety of ways of perceiving this world. That’s the real thrill of taking photos.
