I have been a Software Engineer for nearly 20 years now. I never really dabbled with photography until last summer, which brought me face to face with a life changing event. An event that left me in a very dark place, where I desperately needed an outlet to slowly move on.
I had happened to have purchased a Fuji X-T20 at the time, which I was planning to use on a holiday with my partner. Instead, I started going out on the streets, learning about semi auto, auto, and all the technical bits of photography. At the time I thought that being a good photographer was knowing a camera's secrets inside out.
Soon enough, and while following influential photographers like Sean Tucker and Paola Franqui, I realised photography is about putting one's heart and soul out there. The camera and its secrets are simply the means to that end.
