Image what you can do with a tool which can capture moments of time and record human emotions, amazing landscapes and unique wild creatures. Architecture and otherwise impossible to put together in a flat surface compositions, are now possible. DLSR camera grants you an access to meet new people and explore new places. You will be surprised how much human emotions you can experience and how many human souls you will encounter.
People are natural artists and they like to the center of attention. They like others to admire and compliment them. And expressing themselves in front spectators could be an instinct of proving one’s vitality and reaffirming itself. No matter if you are shy meeting other people. Point a camera at them, smile and they will engage with you. You will also have an excuse to leave your house, get off the couch on the weekend and search for a landscape, wake up early and chase birds outdoors.
I think DLSR is just another social networking tool. You can start meeting and get to know lots of photographers with the same interest or with the same eagerness to explore places and connect with other people. And more experiences means richer foundation to stay informed and make better decisions in life. Why not learn from fellow photographers, observe the things around you and learn to see them in a way you have never seen before. Through a lens and with a camera one can frame a portion of the world around him and capture a slice of time, he chooses and decided to.
So if you have been thinking or delaying getting your first digital camera, don’t delay anymore. It doesn’t have to be the most expensive or top of the line with the latest feature. Get one. Point and shoot! Mirrorless! One smartphone with a 8Mpx camera. Start exploring the World around you. Anything is better than nothing. You will be amazed how much new things and people you will find out there…
