Working as an Electronics Engineer, involves extreme logical thinking, software programming, and systematic analytical skills to troubleshoot and solve various technical problems. Photography, on the other hand, is directly opposite from my everyday work. You need to be creative, be able to appreciate arts and most important of all, go against the rules, break away from the conventional and develop your own personal photography style.
It is always a pleasure to see and use an electronic engineering device (camera), and being able to capture arts and put into practice by many people.
Moving back to films and processing the captured images, seeing the pictures appearing on the film and photo paper is simply a joy and fascination to appreciate chemistry and arts.
