Im an Architect who started to get interested in photography by the age of 12, when a small 3,2 M nikon coolpix fell onto my hands. Back then i used to take photographs of kind of whatever got in front of my eyes, i wanted to make something like a portrait of the world, it fascinated me, i loved to stop the moment, and also used to love the light, but as it is obvious i was too young to have a technique, although i got great shots by that time. By the time this little jewel (for me) was getting worn-out, a Nikon Coolpix 8700 fell onto my hands as my father was leaving it, i felt way so lucky. My hobby could grow...Then I started to study Architecture, and as you may imagine we have loads of graphic/art subjects, so I could improve other aspects. Anyway, the degree takes too much time, so my hobby has to be left aside (though never forgotten). Three years after that, my father (who is also interested in photography) got me a Nikon D40, which i used till i could not do anything more, it was worn out, had problems with autofocus, and many things, but it was so useful because it was so easy-to-learn, so that's what happened...i learned a lot, took many pictures for my career, and also many portraits, it kind of became more serious. Finally, this year i got a D90 and since then I'm just...in love... i think abouth photography all the time, and also like everything, landscapes, lights, portraits, and i love trying new things. So...I hope i can learn from this site as i've already seen pictures which took my breath away.....wish someday i could do something quiet like those.
