How I Do Photography
To me, photography is about sharing my vision, making people see the world around me; delivered in highest quality as possible, presented in the best way as possible.
What I Avoid in Photography
I don't own my DSLRs for any reason other than to take photograph as defined in the above point: I own them because they facilitate me in taking photograph in a quick way; small, portable, and light body, as silent as possible, serve me thousands of shots in a single charge, and provide me the results just as what I want.
What I Think of Filters and Digital Manipulations
Applying filters and doing digital manipulations are needed only to: 1) improve the quality of the photograph (lighting, colors, noise, sharpness and details, exposure, etc). 2) provide viewers the intended feel of the photograph while maintaining actual content (adding warm/cool tones, vignette to focus the subject, etc). Maintaining actual content is necessary as you can relate to how I do photography in the first point.
