I Love Photography


 

Hi guys, hope you are enjoying the second month of 2014. Today I like to talk about my interest to photography, taking photos is  my long time interest. I have been capturing  many images of myself, my family, in different events and places for the purposes of preserving memories and sharing them in social network.

These selfies I took them to use as profile photos with a smart phone held at arm's length.



 

Then I decided to take it seriously, if you remember one of my post in May 2013 I posted about taking advantages of free on line courses, I'm learning a lot from free online courses such as  personal finance, project management, cooking, personal development. And now I'm taking that freedom to learn photography,  thanks to this website (www.photographycourse.net) , I'm following  introduction to photography class  this cover the basics of photography - film, optics and flash, perfect for those who never studied the art and science of  photography before  like me. Courses are quick and easy to understand  and I'm learning them any time I like. I can' t wait to learn more and improve my skills.

Paris is a beautiful city with many attractions historic landmark's, museums, architecture, cathedrals, parks, etc. It offers so many opportunities for photographers to capture  amazing images. The followings are some of my photos taken here and there in Paris.
