Photography My Favourite Hobby

Updated on June 19, 2013

Photography is my favorite hobby.The aim of indulging such an interest is sheer pleasure or relaxation.It refreshes the mind and provides a welcome change from such dull and dreary routine of daily life.I visited a few good libraries and read articles and magazines on the subject of photography.Photography is quite expensive pastime and to be a good photographer on needs a lot of training and guidance.So i attended a few short courses to pursue my hobby.I also did an internship with a reputed photographer.

To be a good photographer i have to take all aspects into consideration. I have to look from all directions to capture a picture. I have to decide which direction will be the best.Color combination is also a very important factor.While taking pictures of animals or birds a photographer has to wait for hours it needs lots of patience. When i was snapping photos with my senior photographer in a jungle i waited more than two hours to catch animals in my camera.Finally i took very nice photographs of animals and nature.It was an amazing experience for me.In recent times there are very advanced cameras are available in the shops,its lenses are also very useful.With the help of the lenses one can capture photos even if from the far distance. There are some universities who started special course on photography.People are looking as a career to this subject.I think the best photograph i ever took was the one in which my sister stood with her hands raised and her palms joined like a cup.The moon is far in the background exactly over the raised palms.It seems as if she is holding the moon in the palm of her hands. Anyone who sees this photograph raves about it.

When my friends invited me for parties or weddings i took my camera along.If we happened to go for treks or hikes i was there,ever ready with my inevitable camera.I am particularly interested in capturing landscapes,especially during twilight. I then began experimenting with light and shadows,I would place a bowl of flowers on the table with a candle to illuminate it from one side.Then I would switch the lights off and click away from various angles with the flash of camera snapping off and on.

Photography has made my senses keen and my imagination sharp.I have developed a wonderful aesthetic sense.I have my albums of all these photographs.And when i really nothing to do i just leaf through the photo albums and a whole gamut of interesting reminiscences rush through my mind.
