After I retired, I started looking for some sort of hobby to fill my time. I spent weeks looking into several options and took my time to find the one thing that really captured my interest. I finally picked photography. I started shopping around for the essential gear that I would need to learn photography from the beginners level to the most advanced. As I learned about photography, I included the highlights of what I learned here on my blog. You will find information about the equipment, techniques and even editing and printing pictures that you have taken with your favorite camera.
