“A photograph is usually looked at – seldom looked into.”
― Ansel Adams
This is the main page for all my articles in my planned series about photography, which is coming very soon. I do freelance photography work as a photojournalist, but I am a complete amateur when it comes to artistic pieces (I’m in awe of artistic photographers – particularly landscapers). I use a Canon Eos Rebel T5i DSLR camera as my main camera, and a Fujifilm Finepix-S 28-504mm digital bridge camera as my secondary camera, and as a result my experience with photography may differ from people with different cameras (such as Sony or Nikon, neither of which I’ve ever used)…
