I have a regular digital camera to take pictures with, and that was the only type of camera that I knew about and that I desired to use. It was a red Nikon that I got for my birthday a few years earlier.

This hobby has inspired me to become a photojournalist, because I will be able to capture everyone’s happiest moments. I will get to experience every type of culture through my camera, and it will make me thrilled to see the beauty of this world. My life has changed for the better since I started my new hobby, because it has made me more confident with myself and it has made me perfectly comfortable with other people. Photography has taught me how to see the world in a different perspective, or in my case, through a different lens.
