I'm an amature photographer. In fact, I don't have much time to spend on photographing because I'm an electronic engineer, though I do want to have more time to commit to photography. Years ago, while picking up my first DSLR, I could hardly move my eyesight from the lovely *istD. At that moment, I just wanted a tiny and high quality camera to go mountain climbing with me. Based on the assumption, the *istD came back home with me and trapped me into "Pentax". In the past 3 years, the *istD has performed its role well mountain-climbing, worldwide traveling, at family gatherings and other activities with me. In the beginning of my photography love, I bought tons of books about how to do well photographing and I wandered around all big image-sharing websites to learn how to excel in photgraphy. I do think that works. For me, I will keep on learning about photography though I will still have very limited time to spend on it.
