"I have bought a new camera and lenses. I understand how to operate my camera, compose shots, understand the lighting concepts, learnt more about file management, Lightroom and Photoshop. I am motivated to put all of this learning into practice. I take photo's every day now. I want to be able to take well-composed photo's for work portraits and to be able to offer this in addition to my graphic design services for my clients. At this stage, photography is a hobby. My goal is to be able to use them within my graphic designs."
