First of all, thank you all for watching my humble work. I consider myself a photography passionate since many years back. More likely everything started when I was bought my first 2Mpx digital camera by my parents many years ago. Although I already took pictures with the old fashion analog cameras before, I started squeezing this world even more from that moment since I finally got rid of all the limitations and shot as many times as I wanted to, not needing to spend money a child often does not have to develop the rolls afterwards. To summarize, Photography simply makes me feel good, it can be said that it completes me.
At the beginning the main reason to take pictures was probably to be able to remember any special moment at a future ocassion and in a more detailed way of what my fragile memory usually allows me. Some years later I decided to make it to the next step, a DSLR camera. From then on I started to watch the world differently, paying more attention to details, even the smallest ones and freezing them into photographies. That was the time for a bittersweet feeling to take over me as soon as I reviewed my shots. I needed to make more of them and so I started to self-teach myself by reading magazines and books, watching video tutorials and getting inspired by someone else's work, being constructively criticized in photo forums, and over all by capturing loads of pictures and analysing them afterwards to search for an excuse to go back in location and take it again!
I can tell that my pictures are way better than they were in the past but that bittersweet feeling never goes away entirely, the good point is that nowadays I enjoy a lot more the sweet part than before, if that is possible, and that I take advantage of the bitter part to go on raising and improving my skills day by day.
There is a lot of work ahead and I love the challenge!
