I shot these DJ shots in a shopping mall where the DJ kindly let me take his pictures while he was serving music in a shoe store. I was using my Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4 and Pentax K100D. I was passionate in the shooting as I found the lighting extremely attractive. I wish I had more chances to shoot pictures for people. It was a memorable shoot.

Two years have passed. I still have the same passion in photography that I had before. I continuously find enthusiasm and excitement in the process of shooting people and nature. I am still very much the amateur like two years ago. But unlike the beginning, I am more confused than ever what I can afford to pursue in the passion. I worry too much and I can't follow my heart to do what I would like to pursue in life. I am obligated for financial support for my beloved family. And I am in a state of loss what I can try out next. I always look and quest for shooting better pictures but on the other hand, I lose touch with the purpose in the passion. Is it my destiny to be a photographer? Am I ready to take steps to become a freelance photographer? Would I be able to support my family? Would I get worse in spending less time with my family. I just have too many questions that I don't seem to have an answer with certainty, confidence and comfort.

I am always going to remember why I do this thing called photography. Yes, it might brighten the day of someone who sees the result. Yes, it might bring in a few dollars/euros/pounds if I get lucky.

But none of that matters, ultimately. I take photos because it puts me in touch with the world in a special way. More than that: it pus me in touch with myself. It brings me joy.

These are great photos, especially the first. Thank you for sharing.

There are many decisions we have to make in life. If one could support own self and family by pursuing a hobby or passion, by all means do it. If this passion makes you happy, but leaving your family miserable, what fun would taking the best photos be. Well, maybe it is fun now, but when one is old and gray, and alone, I would think it would not be much fun.....
