hi guys! today, i am launching (lolz) my official interest, which is photography. :) i have been fascinated with it ever since i was in elementary, i really had that dream of owning a camera and taking pictures. but this interest flourished just recently. :) i think i was influenced by the photographs in the internet and i get inspired. well, what can you comment about this? any other budding photographers here? or any serious photographers here to give me some tips? or just some moral support perhaps. lolz. :) thank you and good day! :)

Good for you! My brother works as an engineer but he has a passion in photography for a long time already. Due to that, he's done a part-time job taking wedding video movies and photographs. I believe if you are passionate in something, just do it and you will find a lot of benefits from it.

I have been taking a lot of pictures lately. I love doing it. I try to plan activities in which it would be apporiate to take as many pictures as possible. I also like to scrapbook them. I am just doing it as a hobby. I also love to photograph babies, children and dogs. Somehow I am able to get great pictures of them.

I have been in love with photography as long as I can remember. I won my first camera when I was about 9. I used it up until High School when I got another one. I went on a cruise and it fell into the water when we were on the beach and I needed a new one. Then a couple years later my son was born and I wanted a digital camera. My husband surprised me at Christmas with a new digital camera. I am already wanting a bigger better one. One that I can switch out lenses on. I have already shot 2 weddings, and most of another. I have done a few bands and some baby and children. I also did a couple and their dog last fall. I am trying to start really getting my name out so I can do it as a hobby and make money at it. My only tip is to get a camera and go for it! There are plenty of good books and websites for inspiration or tips. Also a good editing program. Good luck with your new found love :) ps. sorry I rambled. I could talk about cameras and picture taking all day.
