My journey toward photography has been an interesting one. I started with a very basic DSLR camera, and after several years of experimentation with its manual settings, I finally made the jump to single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Being a photographer is not just about having a camera or being able to take pictures well. It requires the ability to process information from raw data, which is why I am passionate about learning things and implementing them in real life. Hey!
