THE GUEST'S WORDS: I bought one Nikon automatic point and shoot camera (L820) in 2013 just to shoot family photos and travel memories. After handling the small machine and studying some photography articles, I immediately realized that I have to get a DSLR for full manual control of exposure settings. With a Nikon D7000, I began to travel frequently for photographing places around the country. I have always been a self-taught person, and generally utilize photography articles in internet as well as own experience. Gradually, I learned some compositional techniques, light properties, processing etc. Posting in Facebook also helped me a lot to earn knowledge from senior photographers around. Some of my photographs have been published in Smart Photography Magazine, and around 50/60 of them have earned acceptances in Photography Salons. I love wide angle; so, I love to shoot landscapes, architectures, travel shots, as well as street shots.
