A Burning Desire for Photography

I have been really thinking about photography and planning to take it seriously as a hobby. I want to take pictures, of the mundane, the simple, the common. I want to capture beauty and let the world see it through my eyes (or lens :P )
I know you sense a "but" in there so here it is...
But I don't know where to start. So many questions are running through my mind right now. Will I have the talent,time and money to go to different places to shoot? I don't think I have a keen eye, can that be developed? Where will it take me?
I guess I could start on learning the basics of photography. Maybe take a class or two. Take a trip somewhere and shoot to my heart's content. Yes, my heart is set. Inspite of the questions, my heart beats with excitement - i hope this excitement turns into a burning passion for photography.
This weekend's plan is to go to UP Diliman early in the morning to shoot and shoot and shoot. :) Do you know if it's allowed or not? I don't want to be shooed away by the guards and all.

Hi Nyree! Ako din! I super want to practice shooting more but I don't have a DSLR and my freelancing is keeping me from traveling to shoot photos.

I took a basic photography class before by FPPF. It was cheap and very well worth it. You can check their site http://www.photoworldmanila.com.

It's a four day workshop (Sundays) which takes place in Fort Santiago.

we've just bought a Nikon D40X kit the other week. it's an entry-level DSLR cam that me and my hubby is so crazy about.

the online community in http://digitalphotography.com.ph/forum will help you get started. It helped us a lot and we are also planning to enroll in a photography class.

buy now and start shooting! :)
