How I started
A few years ago I discovered (SLR)photography and a new hobby was born.
My first contact with photography was in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I already owned a Nikon D5000 and a very old (heavy) stand. With some (new)friends we met at the "Markthal" in Rotterdam for a " walk tour" trough Rotterdam to shoot architecture. Of course I made the rookie mistakes like shooting in .jpeg and not RAW but I loved every bit of it. During the day I learned a lot like composition, how the camera worked and how to take pictures (what to look for). I've upgraded my gear and now own a D5200 and some additional lenses.
The hobby takes a lot of time and unfortunately time is something I have less. The good news, less time is still time.
So still work in progress!
