I believe we all picked up a camera at a very young age, no matter how simple or basic it was. Since I was a child, I dreamt of becoming a photographer or videographer, like people on YouTube. With my first camera, which was a Nikon, I went to an academy which helped me learn basic photography and editing skills. Since it is a hobby that I wish to develop further, I practice these skills every day on my own. I also had opportunities to work as a wedding photographer back home, in Bangladesh.
After I came to the U.S, I decided to buy a professional camera, a Sony Alpha A7III, and a drone to more seriously pursue photography and videography. Even though I don’t have a community of friends who share this same interest, I still love it.
