My first shot (with purpose)
This is the very first shot I did with the purpose of “taking a photo”. I didn’t actually know how to control the camera. So, instead of spend my time reading the manual, I decided to try the camera into the wild.
Learn-by-doing has always been tough in the world of pictures since the cost (in both, time and money) of improving eye and technique was huge (countless wasted rolls, month spent waiting for the negatives to come back from the lab…)
Going digital eases the process of understanding how to shoot properly, but admittedly with a huge price to pay: way too much “photographer” around the world…
