i'm not a photographer (yet ;)) but i'm going to be one, i adore photography and think it's an amazing way of art. i'm always taking pictures of my friends in different places, like for example i take them to the park and give then nice outfits so i can take pictures of them and i love how they turn out. i'm only 16 but i am taking photography classes and i'm the photographer for my school yearbook. i recently bought the Canon EOS 50D because i couldn't afford the 60D :$ but they don't have much difference. basically i know i want to be a photographer because i can see myself taking pictures of everything everywhere i go and i love it so much.

Most people who pursue photography as a career first begin with a deep interest in taking photos on a regular basis. They go beyond taking photos casually but are determined to understand the technical side of photography. A lot of times their talents are identified by the people around them.
