Yesterday my dad arrived in Singapore to spend 3 days with me before I fly home.
He gifted me a Canon Camera (at my request) and today I started messing around with it.
Much like with learning any new skill, I quickly was introduced to a myriad of photography terminology which I had no grasp of: rule of thirds, ISO, shutter speed, aperture.
Apparently, the camera I have is a point and shoot, while DSLR is a more professional type of camera.
In the end, I brushed all the educational articles and videos away…for now
I’ll eventually learn them, but right now, I think I need to go through the confusion phase—where I learn by myself through test and failure.
If you were handed a guidebook every time you tried to do something new, then the authentic experience of trying new things disappears a little.
In a world where knowledge is power, sometimes its good to gain that knowledge on your own.
Here are some of my shots from today (at Singapore Safari)
