Thread: Wat do u hope to achieve in photography

  1. #1

    Default Wat do u hope to achieve in photography

    Juz a question to find out wat everyone's aims are when u "get interested" in and pick up photography...

    do some pick it up juz to take better snapshots (which was my aim when i started) or to turn pro someday etc etc?

    for me, i'm living my aim now... haha....

    cheers...

    Hmm... Create my own unique style of photography?

    Of cos, say create is create. But whether ppl can appreciate it is another thing...

    For me it was to learn and maybe become a freelance one day. But that day never happened. but I learnt it the hard way with the film SLRs and started with a budget model and slowly upgraded to a professional model.

    Now that I am truning digital, I will need to relearn what I had learnt years back as I have not the luxury of time to really play around when my kids were born and I was borged down with work in my previous job.

    In my current role, I can more or less have more time to play around and do the things that I missed doing. My kids are also picking it up too.

    laughter, peace and joy.

    laughter - when i make new frens who share the same interests, and have fun shooting together.

    peace - nothing beats grabbing my camera to go out for a shoot over the weekend after 5 days of crap in office.

    joy - when i get THE image.

    i do have a product shoot coming tomorrow pics are for web page use only, so it can take a fair bit of errors (fingerprints, dusts, dirt, sticker gum.. etc,etc all cannot be seen.. kekekek )

    my goal in photography.. to document the people (friends, relatives..) and environment around me as I grow up.. too bad I started out late.. I miss a fair quarter of my life already

    To train myself to have a more muscular index finger
    Nah, I can get the same results from play games all day. I guess its more for self satisfaction when you can get whatever you envisioned on print.
