Let’s Get Shooting! Learn to love your plastic camera’s quirks and make artful images

This is especially true for those who take their photography seriously, whether as art, their profession, or for personal use. Creating images that resonate with you and that have something of interest to other people takes seeing in your own personal way and getting your idea on film. This kind of vision is mostly unrelated to the equipment you ’ re using and takes practice to develop.
