When I was informed that our office will create a photography club, I did not think twice to become a member. The purpose of the club is to create a pool of photographers that would become alternates to our Media people in documenting our work. I thought this is crazy. Photography is a hobby that has been set aside because of my work but now, I think the club would resurrect this interest. Therefore, I enlisted myself to the club.
A month later the promise of the club to conduct a formal basic photography course came to materialize. It was a three-day course and I learned a lot about ISO, aperture, shutter speed, metering, etc. I even got to discover some parts of my camera that I never got to use. How cool is that? So there were assignments and we were required to submit our shots. By the end of the course, I earned two awards, fifth place in human activity and second place in landscape photography. That’s quite an incentive so here I am, inspired to finally become a hobbyist. I still don’t know where this would lead me but I am looking forward to become a better photographer.
