The very first time I held and used a DLSR to take some artistic photos was in December 2008. I had a Sony Alpha DSLR‑A200 10.2 MP Digital SLR Camera and all I did was read the whole manual before our 2-week trip to San Francisco and Las Vegas. I didn’t know how to use Photoshop then, so I treated each shot as if it’s the final product. The photos in this collection features the photo itself when it was taken in 2008 and the photo after I edited it today. I see it as a great way to mark my growth as a creative soul.
