Digital photography has been a hobby of mine since 2001. My first digital camera was a slim and pretty Canon PowerShot S110. It had a 2.1 megapixel CCD and a 2X optical zoom. There was even a little movie mode. I loved that camera very much – I forgot how many lovely photos I took with it.
I switched to a more professional digital camera in 2002 – via a 5 megapixel Sony DSC-F717. That was when I began to experiment heavily with digital photography accessories and photo editing software. I also began to learn more about shooting quality photos and how to properly light my subjects.
Through the years, I’ve owned (and later sold) all manner of digital cameras from Canon, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony. Each time new models came out, I’d try to upgrade my old cameras and try out the new technology.
I currently own three digital cameras. One is a powerful Canon EOS Rebel T3i for more professional quality work, another is a backup point-and-shoot Nikon Coolpix S2700. My third camera is a mirrorless Panasonic Lumix GM1 – which is the perfect balance of portability and high image quality. I love my cameras!
I never had any formal training in photography. I just worked things out for myself using trial and error. Most of the stuff I know has been picked up from books, the Internet and various product manuals. And of course, lots and lots of practice and analysis of my camera exposure settings.
Digital photography is a very rewarding hobby, but picking up the basics can be a challenging. However, don’t be afraid to learn, experiment and try out new techniques. Sooner or later, your skills will develop and you’ll be taking much better pictures.
