Photography - it changes lives

01-04-2013 · By PF Staff in Influential Photo Gear

I will be different in giving my introduction.  No more questions to start my intro some flavor to it. I'll be more straight and direct. According to the info given I need to submit a short piece about what piece of photographic equipment has made the biggest positive impact on your photography. I'll talk about not just how my photographic equipment made a big positive impact on my photography, but as well as how it made a huge impact to my life.

This is the the equipment that made a huge impact to me. The Pentax K-x:

I could say, this piece is truly small but terrible, in terms of its capabilities and features in its level. Being my first equipment and made a way for me in photography Pentax K-x is easy to use. How this equipment made a huge impact in my life will be discussed in the rest of this post.

The Pentax K-x is my first DSLR camera and with this camera it is my way into photography.  Before, I was never into photography, no ideas about it, no interests but that was almost 2 years ago.  Talking about how the K-x made impact to my life, I received K-x as my grad gift. My parents gave me the privileged to choose the camera that I want but with some limitations (one would be budget).  As always I saw Nikon DLSRs, Canon'sq, Sony's and then Pentax, not being the least but the most attractive one.  Due to limited budget I chose K-x, without a doubt and even without any ideas about how to take good photos I learned with my K-x

Let's go back at the time before I got my first camera, I'm the person who don't really like to take photos and would just love to sleep at home, I'm also, at that time, the person who has no confidence, no self-esteem, and no direction, I mean I don't know what I want and what I really want to do, I don't have any special talents except in eating and eating and not gaining significant weight (maybe due to the fast metabolism of my body). 

To make the long story short, I met Taks ( yes, it is my K-x's name).  Through photography with my K-x, it let me see things differently. I started to gain interest in things, that's why I started to learn more about photography even though just through the internet still with this new passion I learned a lot and with perfect practice make  things perfect.  With Photography I learned to see things in different perspective, I learned to appreciate all the things around me, especially the small ones.  With this newly discovered I talent, I gained hope, I gained some appreciation, and I was able to know more about who I am. That's it, that's the only thing that photography did to me (sarcastic tone).

Photography is a choice that changes lives. Photography is not just capturing moments, it's an extension of our enjoyment, for eternity.
