Having being as an amateur photographer for several years, all my “weapons”, camera, lens, speed lite and other accessories, they are already part of me. I am also an industrial designer, one of my after-curriculum design hobbies in to design the ultimate camera for me. It is enjoyable to be a user as well as a designer at the same time, which gives me sensitive awareness and essential design skill about the tools about photography. If added with some natural appreciation about beauty, these three things together will sing the song of good design.
This is my philosophy about design, an equation.
Awareness + Design Knowledge and Skill + Aesthetic Judgment = Design
