Behind the lens
My name is Michael Anthony Ygnacio; I am better known as “Tonton” by my family and relatives, and “Mykz” by everyone else. I am not a professional photographer, and have no plans of becoming one in the immediate conceivable future. So, I probably consider myself as an amateur/hobbyist/enthusiast photographer.
I have always been fascinated with cameras, taking photos of others, and shooting all sorts of stuff ever since the earliest time I can remember, which I think was some time during my early grade school years. Through a series of photos and exposures to different cameras, from the webcam to the phone camera, Kodak film camera, digital point-and-shoots, and dslr’s, I progressed from borrowing and playing around with somebody else’s cameras to eventually fully owning one. And with that comes the discovery of a drive and a passion for photography.
Thus, that brings me to where I am at present – a left-brained software developer by day, and a right-brained photographer on all other days with my camera. Needless to say, I still consider myself a work-in-progress, with so much more to learn, knowing that the only way to go in this journey is to keep on shooting! \m/
Behind the site
The creation of this photoblog has been inspired by a number of things. First, I’ve got to say, is with the dissatisfaction with the quality of photos in Facebook. Second, is that I’ve always wanted to create a blog. Having my own camera is simply what I needed to finally be able to do so. Third, I suppose, is one thing common to almost every photographer – love for cameras, photos, and everything in between.
