Hello my name is Syed and i am a student currently at The City College of New York and working part-time. I came to New York at 2010 and settled here with my family. I have many hobbies like sports, driving cars, painting, taking pictures and so much more. Recently Among all the hobbies Photography seems to getting much interesting to me and i decided to do something with it. I started taking pictures with my father's Olympus camera back at Dhaka, Bangladesh and had a lot but back then did not have much to upload so only printed few good ones. Continuing on the Dream to have my own DSLR i carried on using whatever near me. Went on using the camera till it became old and stopped working and now displayed as an antique by my father. I got my self a Cell Phone with which i took a lot of picture which was totally random and not praise able enough but later noticed every picture had it own story so i kept on doing it. In between i use few smartphones with which my love for photography increased but the quality of pictures was not enough but i still went on until i got my self a new camera at last. It was a Sony Cybershot, Model-DSC-H55 . I loved it and still using it for quick and random shots at events and parties. I soon moved to New York and started working part time and also studied as a college student where i took the Introduction to Photography course in which i had to buy a Manual SLR film camera and i was happy to have it by my side, It was a Vivitar V3800N with which i took black and white pictures necessary for my course but day by day it became tough and not so easy to handle or go on with the course and using a film was the hardest part for me as i already wasted 3 rolls and never knew the reason. I was sad and had to withdraw from the course but still went on as long as i could and the expenses would rise day by day for printing sheets and films. I thought using a manual camera would be great to start learning and i did. Learning about ISO, Lighting, Aperture. Shutter Speed and using them was hard with the camera. But i still wanted to go further and during the Black Friday 2013 i got my self the new Nikon D3200. I was happy and was joyed to get what i wanted for so long. I started taking pictures with not worrying about developing any films using chemicals or printing from negatives. But through that course i was able to handle this new DSLR and so far i have taken a lot of pictures. Sunset, sky, buildings, events, snow, rain and many more i love to see and save in memory. And now i hope to keep going with this hobby and see what more i can do.
