    Biography: Hotel owner/manager by day I get very busy caught up in the daily things on my list of to-dos. My true hobby is computers so I do many different things for the hotel using a computer. I design all the ads for the hotel and many other things with the time I have away from the hotel. However this hobby was still keeping within the hotel boundaries. I managed to get my hands on a Canon Digital Rebel by luck from a guy who was selling his gear so I said why not and I bought it. I had never used a DSLR or done anything with camera but take pictures of basic things. I started doing research online for photography as a hobby and I starting reading articles upon articles of techniques and the vast array of things involved with photography. I soon started taking pictures and experimenting with different things. I was going places fast though due to the fact I started running out of things to take pictures of. After doing more research I came across DPC and thats was when I joined and now Im an active member and use all my free time with the website and doing more research on photography.

    I will one day..if I keep trying. Hiral Patel

    "I took a photo....it needed composition
    I composed a photo....it needed better lighting
    I added lighting....it needed technique
    I added technique....it needed sharpness
    I added sharpness....it needed "wow"
    I added "wow".....it landed a ribbon
    dame it I dont have one....well I guess I need to add some more."
