I bought my first camera in late 2015 for a trip to Europe. I was only using all auto settings. After that, I took a camera 101 course with Henry's Camera and learned the basics of photography.
I found that I like taking photos and that I wanted to do it better. So with no related background knowledge and being new to photography, I knew there was a lot for me to learn. I was very happy when I found TDPC. I knew that this was the place that I need to be. I became a member since 2016.
All of the club activities are interesting and helpful. The guest speakers give me inspirations, and constructive feedback from the competition judges is often eye opening. I have been getting the most help from my evaluation group. It is a friendly environment to share photos and receive input from the group members and mentors.
Photography gives me a lot of fun. It gives me the inspiration to look at my surroundings in a different way. It gives me the excitement to take photos and makes my journey more enjoyable and meaningful.
