    I want to record my life and my surroundings as pictures, not only in colours but also in InfraRed.

    The real motivation is because InfraRed photography, that I took up photography. Till to date, I am still shooting IR.

    Actually I've always like to take pictures of celebraties and landscapes , REALLY ... I had lots of disappointments where I had to camp n squeeze in crowds just to get trash quality shots of the celebraties, and besides, I really like landscape (but no $ to go overseas to shoot), I'm especially interested with shots with lighting in them . N besides, I've always been snapping away at friends during gathering with HP, PnS etc ...

    At least, this is healthier than my previous 2 hobbies:
    1. Online Gaming - Yes, I still play online games, but not as often ...
    2. Hardware Hobbylist - At least the BBB poison in photography isn't really as poisonous as Hardware where you really gotta BBB everytime your hand itch for that new piece of equipment which just released

    Although shooting girls is addictive, but that isn't the main reason for me to begin REALLY ...Option 3 n 4 for me plz ...

    I got hooked when I was secondary 2, using my friend's ancient Olympus OM10. It unfortunately spoilt a few months after, and I left it at that till this year, when my other friend's Canon DSLR 20D lighted a fire in me. Currently planning hard to reenter the photography world.

    Plus the places i go to take the pictures are usually restricted and out-of-bounds to the general public =P but dun worry i enter there with a special research permit

    actually, photography is mainly a medium in which I recognise my aesthetic interpretations of the world with it. As with other artists, sculptors, critics, etc.

    OMG ... this is why i bought my first DSLR as well... i wanted to document the happy moments and sad moments in my life..so i may one day look back at these photos with my family and children.

    My late father wasnt much of a photo person. so i have little or no childhood photos, i also dont have many photos to remember him by, though he lives on in my heart.

    i want my children to have some visual aid when they think of their daddy many many years from now. im 25 now. but one day i will be 65. its hard to remember 40yrs, but with photos its easier.

    Somehow, in a strange manner, I can relate to that. I'm luckier, have some photos to remember him by. Since picking up photography as a hobby though, I'm finding lesser and lesser pictures of myself inside snapshots. More as a record, like photo journal, of places you've been to and people you've met. Memories in your heart. Cheers. Snap lots mate.

    i guess its whats around us that we are trying to preserve through photography.
