I think everyone should take up photography. Not only does it promote exercise, it trains your brain to view the world in a way that you might not expect.
Photography is indeed the Language of Light.
Photography in my early life was something that didn’t really appeal to me. For the most part, it was always frustrating to me. I could never understand why after paying “so much” for a camera, the images would come out a blurry mess. Granted, I was shooting with a point and shoot but nevertheless. I had high expectations from that little image maker.
And now here I am, many years later with a much better understanding of what it takes to create an image by shaping light.
It requires knowledge of the exposure triangle, as well as a decent camera.
They say the best camera is the one you have on you. This is true, to a certain extent. Meaning, any camera is better than no camera. But I also believe that a camera with stabilization, great low light capabilities and many, many focus points is also critical.
That’s why I shoot Sony.
