I am from Portugal and it just happens that I like to take photographs!
I dislike digital effects, post treatments and all associated things. I am really lazy, I hate to spend hours in front of a computer trying to correct or to create something that wasn't there when I took the photograph.
That said, I am now fully converted to digital photography. I often use a micro digital camera from Panasonic to take unobtrusive pictures, although my camera is a Nikon D-300, but it lacks discretion for certain type of pictures.
I do not consider myself an artist nor do I want to become one. I just enjoy taking pictures as I like, when I like, without any sort of pressure. I am very proud of being an amateur, amatore, the one who loves in latin, that's me all right!
Cheers from Portugal
