For a very long time, I wanted to learn the art of photography. As a kid, I would rejoice clicking pictures from my parent’s phone or for that matter any body’s phone or camera. It was recently that I bought for myself a DSLR to learn photography. It is a Nikon D5300, with two lenses. The 18-55 allows me to shoot photos at a closer distance while the 70-110 helps me by clicking far off photos.

Apart from my keen desire to master photography, I have been a blogger for quite a long time and being a blogger, it is very important for our content to be plagiarism free. Adding to this, a blog with only content often leaves the readers disappointed and gives a sense of a book with only text. Something, most people do not prefer to. So, once my content started sounding genuine, I wished for better photographs. This could have been possible only if I knew how to capture moments. Or else, my work had to depend on someone else.

It has been 8 months since I got the camera and have been using it extensively almost everywhere. From the solo trips that I have taken to my office parties, from the friends gatherings to our crazy fun nights. The camera has helped me in capturing the moments of life in a more beautiful way.

Owning a camera teaches an individual multitude of things. The most important of which I believe is how to see things differently. When one clicks different photographs of the same thing, he or she realizes the different sides of the same thing. Also, I believe one must learn as many skills as he or she can in their lifetime.
