I have some really great news!
About a month ago, in mid-October, I was contacted by DeviantART for participating in a project. They had read my journal of how I was raising funds for a new camera, since my old 1000D had run out of shutter’s life, and decided I would be perfect for the new project by Sony.
4 photographer, me included, all received Sony mirroless cameras and were set out for a week-long shoot capturing change in each of our countries. I got myself a Sony a7R with E 55-210mm telephoto lens. I also thought a wider-angle lens would be really suited for the project, so using the fundraiser money, I got myself the Sony E 16mm F2.8 Pancake lens.
It really is the biggest project I’ve ever done in my life, and the very first professional job I’ve got as a photographer. Really, it’s the biggest event in my 25 years of life, and I’m proud of my finished work. Really am. It was tons of fun and a big learning experience working with dA and with the other 3 photographers as well. They did a superb job too and for me it was very interesting to compare how similar and at the same time differently we went on our approach on the concept. They're really some great photographers.
I urge you to check out the whole project as it’s really important to me and thank you everyone for supporting me. Without you guys, deviantART wouldn’t have seen me and I wouldn’t have been part of this project.
