I work in a school library and we have a Canon PowerShot A 400 digital camera for the students to use. One day, a student asked me if she could borrow the digital camera to take some pictures around the school for her assignment, I told her, yes and gave her the camera. I did not bother to asked her if she knows how to used it, then after a few minutes she came back and said it is not working, I told her, it should work and she said if I could show her how to use the camera.
Honestly, I don't know how to use it, but I did not tell her. Luckily she said, if she could come back because she have a class on the next period, I hurriedly get the User's guide book and study it, I practiced at the backroom and books, scissors, masking tape, computers become my subject.
I really got curious and on that weekend I borrowed the digital camera and I have a good time taking pictures in my backyard. It's by no means the perfect shot but it was fun.
That was over three years ago, in Christmas 2005, I gave myself a Kodak EasyShare Z700, one of the best thing I ever bought.
So that was the start of my adventure in the world of Digital Photography. I feel that photography have allowed me to see things in a different perspective. I enjoyed stopping on the road side to take pictures and now there is always something interesting in little things. I still have a lot of things to learn and I 've learned in every mistake I made.
Today, I always have my camera in my bag, wherever I go, I don't want to miss any special moments or any exciting events along the way. Now, I have a big collection of pictures which I am slowing downloading on the web and making use of it in my hubs to showcase my adventures in digital photography. Scroll down and Enjoy.
