Many of you here, if not most - know that I travel from time to time - as I have shared various photos with you on the dark side. In the past, all of my photos were taken with my mobile phone, which in fact has great optics, and occasionally I get some mesmerizing shots.
Back in 2014, I have saved money and invested in an entry-level DSLR (Nikon D3200) which is a superb camera for beginners and photographer wannabes (like me). However, under all of the circumstances, I was lazy to take my gear with me. My camera was used as a dust collector and shelf-decoration. Somehow I have forgotten that I actually own it. Okay, yes it was used from time to time in order to create great photos for social media, but that was it.
Lately, it has been on my mind, that if I had taken my camera with me on all of the trips for the past year and a half. I would have created a lot of better photos, than what I have at this moment. Plus, my skills and creative thinking would have been on the next level.
Long story short, from now on I would invest more time, resources, and energy in photography. I don’t want to be a pro, nor to earn from this hobby - it would be more just for fun, but I am going to take it more seriously. Actually, it might even boost my creativity, and therefore I can improve myself even as a designer. Plus, I can use the photos to create personal color palettes - something that @razvan does.
In any case, this would be a win-win for me - as this is going to help me clear my mind from both work and study, and relax by doing something I love.
If any of you has some tips or advice feel free to share it with me. It would be much apperciated.
