April 5, 2016: A DSLR Is For Shooting In The Field, Not For Storing In The Cabinet



April 5, 2016.

For many years, I strongly decided against a DSLR and stuck with a small digital camera since photography wasn't a serious hobby. Photography was a functional need since it adds spice to my written articles. A digital camera was certainly better than a camera phone even with its limitations!

With a budding interest in photography last 2015, I finally decided to get a DSLR by August. After weeks of methodical research, finally went for a Nikon D5200. I promised to take my 'buddy' with me everyday even if my shoulders hurt from the weight. There's no practical sense of buying expensive gadgets for occasional use or storing in the cabinet for indefinite periods of time. All gadgets will arrive at depreciation and breakdown anyway, so might as well cherish the moments everyday and look back someday with no regrets.

Ocassionally, some hurtful words such as "feeling photographer porke nakahawak lang ng DSLR" may have been targeted at me or someone else. Sometimes it even gets so ridiculous that random strangers in the streets know me and have alot of petty things to say.

In defense, I write this post as a declaration of my purpose in this hobby. Nobody has the right to tell anyone to cease their chosen hobby because this is a free country.

An expensive camera is not a status symbol, maybe bonus as a fashion accessory to some. But to me, means nothing more than a buddy to express my creative side that words cannot express.

It is one of my philosophies in life to celebrate one's INDIVIDUALITY. Which is why I began my blog many years ago... as an advocacy for pet rats, and to empower others who like me are underdogs being bullied by those who have more wealth or talent than they are or those who feel resentful because of their jealousies. There is no cure for crab mentality.

This post is not a rant, but this is just to say it's up to the individual to uphold and fight for their freedom of expression. Don't fallout on your hobby just because detractors say you're not good enough. Always listen to what your heart dictates!
