Within the next couple of days, i was theoretically well informed about the concepts of photography. I learned a great deal about the science of photography - the aperture size, shutter speed, ISO, depth of field, white balance, metering and so on. With a brand new camera hung on my neck and the theory of photography in my head, i went out to try my hand in capturing the scenic beauty of a seaside. A click here and a click there - I was all over the place. I reached back and as eager as one could get, i downloaded the pictures on my laptop only to give me a frown. The pictures were all fuzzy and blurred. My simple digital camera could have given me better pictures than this sophisticated camera. Keeping my hopes high, I did some indoor trials working out with all the settings and went again to try out. This time the pictures were much better than before yet below the pro-standards.

After all these hunt for the "best fit", I learned that photography involves both art and science and the two must find a balance to capture the best shot. I hope with every next shot, my pictures get more crisp and clearer.
