What Made You Get Into Photography?
My First Professional Shot With My Nikon D40.
How Did You Get Started?
I Always Had A Point And Shoot Camera Tucked Away Somewhere In One Of My Bags. That Later Was Damaged. Christmas Of 2008 My Wife Surprised Me With My First DSLR Camera(Nikon D40), So One Nite I Took It Out To A Friends Party & Got Busy. After Reviewing The Shots The Following Day, I Was Stunned By The Quality Of The Images And Camera Effects Which I Later Learned Are Called DOF [Depth Of Field] & Bokeh. After Realizing What This Camera Can Do I Wanted To Take More Pictures, But Not Just Any Picture, Professional Pictures.. So I Started Youtubing & Reading All The Info I Can Find To Help Me Take Professional Images.
