According to Kris " Taking picture and painting are the same in my opinion, the exposure, lighting, and the depth of a photography are the same as a painting,
However painting requires imaginations to create a work of art yourself while photography are requires patience and a constant search for the perfect still moment to capture in frame"

He believes there is always something more to learn, so He will never stop studying and practicing the art of photography.
