Photography Competition

A picture can capture soul and heart. From exploding flash guns to compact electronic flash units, box-cameras to sophisticated computerized reflex cameras, stills to movies, and black-and-white to full glorious colors; the art of photography has come a long way since. Everyone needs inspiration from time to time. Whether you are a beginner or professional photographer, no picture is perfect or trash. From photo tips to what gear is best, you learn by experience and by practicing in the field. 

One day it’s Tuesday then all of sudden the sun is rising again and it is Wednesday.
A new day to just create,
Create without a need for it to be seen,
Without a plan or a scheme,
People write poetry with pens,
Well, you capture magnificent moments in your lens.
