I love to travel and capture different places and views, I used to enjoy taking photos randomly in a simple way. Honestly, I never had an idea of what should be the proper view and angle in taking photos. I just did everything for fun and I never see myself doing a photography works someday.
Yes, I was really amazed with beautiful images posted by great photographers over the net. And I admit that there is something in my mind that says ‘I want to do it and I also like to capture nice images too’. But maybe I do not have the time and courage to try it seriously.
Until an opportunity came and all I did was to grab it happily. My interest of learning photography made me realize that aside from my profession, I can still do some other things as my passion that i really love to. Although, this was never been that easy for newbies like me. I have to listen very carefully, keep my mind on focus and remember every details about doing a photography. I know I have to take some time to practice in order to learn more and familiarize myself with camera every settings.
Since I enjoyed our first workshop, what I did was took an everyday photos alone during my free time for almost a week. Some of my photos were good and most of it are not, I knew this are not perfect. Well, its okay because I’m still in process of learning. I also knew that most of my camera settings were wrong and i did not capture the way my mind wants to do it.
This proves me that there is always a creative ideas behind every photographer’s mind before they capture a single photo. While others merely have their talent. But for me, what I really love about photography is simply the feeling of happiness I have in my heart while capturing photos.
Here are some of my photos taken as trial and error.
Taken inside my room. I just tried to change the settings, it used to be too dark at first.
And yes, I really struggled taking photos during night time or in the dark.
I thought the camera hangs but I think it was the wrong combination of shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
Since taking photos in the dark seems hard for me, I captured this one with a spot light.
While this one, during day time with sunlight. I tried to compare photos i captured during night time and day time.
The view of Ayala Triangle during early morning.
When I want to focus on the subject but I never did.
His cute smile looks good.
When I cant find the proper settings before I capture this.
Trying some Creative shot.
Trying a landscape view and it looks good.
The blur effect. this one is better, and this is what I want to do but I did not make perfectly.
As I took my first step in photography I started to build the courage, willingness and determination. Thanks to my friend who used to be my teacher. Credits for the patience while sharing knowledge in photography. I’am grateful for every learning he shared and being the first person who truly believes me in this matter. This truly inspires me and hope that sharing this experience will inspire others too.
