A question to all my fellow photographers.
How did you become a photographer?
If I start with myself, I have been an introvert person for my entire lifetime. I have always enjoyed being self involved in creative things rather than socializing. May it be sketching, reading, painting, listening to music or binge watching. I have always found these things more interesting than going to get-togethers or parties. And since I found my love towards photography, it has become a great companion to me. I love photographing my surroundings. And it gives a satisfaction that I have started valuing my passion too. I enjoy it. How were you inspired to follow your passion?
