About me:

Always liked taking photos, didn't have a good camera until late 2012. While you can say you should be able to take great photos with anything you have, there are certain things you learn from having better equipment. Or maybe that's just me. See, I'm technically minded, and I like manual controls.

Having these available to play with taught me a great deal about exposure and other things. Once I learned those, I also started paying more attention to composure, though I have a much harder time there, as I'm more technical than artistic.

I'm no photographer... I'm possibly an enthusiast or a hobbyist. However, to those who balk at non-professionals spending on top quality equipment: a hobby is something to be fun and enjoyable. If spending a little more of my hard earned money makes that enjoyable for me, then why shouldn't I?
