Photography that can freeze time.

Have you ever wished you could freeze time in life.
Photography does just that for you. Every picture you look at is like an instance of time, a medium to travel to that time at any moment in your life.

All one has to do is look at the picture, close your eyes and you are there.
I dont know if this makes a good
photographer, but it sure does make one want to take up photography. I have done some photography of my own. Having started with a very basic KB zoom from kodak.

There were limitations but I guess that makes a person better understand the whole concept of photography. I did click some kick ass pictures with it too. Then I switched to a casio exilim which was like a sleek and sophisticated camera. The auto mode was amazing. Unlike most of the other personal digital cameras this one supported c
omplete manual settings as well including white balance. The lens Pentax smc 3x (35-105mm equiv) zoom, f/2.6-4.8 did its job pretty well I must say. Check the photograph on the right. The whole idea of looking at this picture to relive my memories got me so engrossed in photography that soon I wanted to pick up the best possible DSLR in the market. A digital single-lens reflex camera Or DSLR is a mechanical mirror system, with pentaprisim to direct light from the lens to an optical viewfinder at the back of the camera. But surely that wasn't going to be possible so i just started saving money for atleast a basic DSLR. Meanwhile my skill with the casio seems to have take a sort of nice shape

Then one fine day I
finally could afford to buy my very own DSLR (Canon EOS D40) with 2 sets of lenses. One a 75-350 lens and another a 25 to 85 lens.There are a lot of blogs and tutorials i went through on a regular basis to get as much as knowledge or information that is required in terms of lighting and tips and tricks. One such site is Also my advise to all the budding photographers is make sure u have the right camera that can suffice your needs.

If you are an amatuer then you might as well go with a personal camera/small digicam. But if you feel that you are way above the amatuers then go for a DSLR. It is also important which camera you choose . I got a lot of help from i am sure it will prove helpful to you too. Having said all this the core essence of photography is manufacturing memories, no matter how good or bad your camera is its what you click is what matters.
