I am so fortunate to have around 3 friends who has the same passion as me on “Photography”.

One person is already in Professional Level and the other two friends are intermediate level.
I am not even close to their visions and skills, but I expect to learn a lot from them.
Also, I am so confident to say that they have taught me enormous amount.

Again, this morning, Norm, who to me, is in the professional level of photography skills, directed me to this link to learn. (Thanks Norm)
