I bought a Nikon D80 a month later. By that time, I was a theoretical expert in photography - I have read a bunch of books without ever testing the theories. It took a few days to get comfortable with the camera, and I know that it will take a long time (and hard work) to be any good, but the passion that I feel talking about photography is unparallel. One of my friends told Farhana after I bought the camera, that it is almost similar to marrying a second wife. An exaggeration indeed, but the closeness that I feel to my camera and the accessories can only compare to the passion that I feel for my near and dear ones. And the photos are almost like my children - I want to make them as beautiful as I can and each of them is a favorite.
Note. It would be a sin to finish this post without a baby picture. I have started a photo blog in tumblr. Here is the plug.
Note2. Information about Dick Gabriel's workshop.
Extravagaria IV: Photographing Conferences
Oct 19, 2008
8:30 - 17:00
I would not be able to attend the workshop, because I would be busy with other stuff. But I will be forever indebted to it because it pointed me to another love of my life.
