Falling In Love With Photography

Life is full of surprises. At this moment that I thought I put art behind, I fall in love with art in different form: photography. I bought a DSLR camera, started shooting around during this love spring, and totally enjoy it!

In my past life I always liked to carry a camera with me during seasons, especially autumn and spring, but never thought to buy a good camera, because I never thought camera would make much difference. As an artist, I seemed to believe that composition was the most important element among almost any visual art forms. However, after purchasing this Canon EOS Rebel T5 1200d, a new world revealed before me! Technology does make difference: images look sharper, colors are more correct (which means more beautiful!), and I am able to take images during many different lighting conditions.

This is a new hobby to me, and I am very happy to explore this new world!


  1. Those are beautiful photos, Yun! Your new DSLR camera takes excellent pictures. It makes sense that photography is another form of art. In the last couple of years, I’ve fallen in love with photography too so I can relate. A good camera really does make a difference in the quality of the images. Two years ago, I got a Canon PowerShot (not quite as advanced as your Canon Rebel but pretty good), and the quality of the photos I was taking improved immensely over the Kodak digital camera I was previously using. I especially love your closeup shot of the azaleas here, very sharp picture and the color is perfect!

    1. thanks madilyn! i love this camera for many reasons. not only the sharp images it takes (most important reason), also it feels good to hold it, and the operating system is very easy to handle.
