Photography is one of the most coveted activities of this century.

Explore practically facets of photography like macro photography, portraits, landscapes and any other that will interest you. Doing this will significantly help you decide which type of photography you want to pursue.
  4. Invest. This is the most crucial point in my article. Photography at this stage is an investment for you.
