Push your luck, join a contest, win a camera!

by Mel dela Pena

I've been a Canon fan ever since I started eyeing on photography as one of my interests. I've been freelancing as an amateur photographer with my late Canon 1000D and covering events before it died on me last year before my birthday. Since then, I've settled for just documenting with my film SLR (because I have no enough funds to buy myself a new digital SLR), and thanks to technology, I've abused the capacity of smart phones.

But see, although smart phones take good photos, they aren't that great unlike shooting with DSLRs. It's about perspective, yes, but looking through that viewfinder is different -  you create a world, a story between you and your subject that only you can tell, that no matter what  the outcome of the shot is, you are the only one who can tell what feeling you have captured that very moment. It's priceless, and I'd give anything to be in that position again - behind the lens of a camera, and capturing moments no one can ever go back to.

It's such a thrill joining contests that will make you win something you really want, and in this case, the Canon 5D Mark III. I joined even if I know that there's a fat, fat chance of me winning. But I guess it's the same with all the other ones who joined this contest. We're at a fair game with chance. Well, I'm still hopeful, and I am pushing my luck on this, so big thanks to SnapKnow wedding photography directory for offering this great camera giveaway!

Now, winning this would make my job easier as well. As you all know, I'm also working as a wedding coordinator. If I win this? Ha! Hitting two birds with one stone - I get to be a wedding photographer as well, and that's one of my dreams! I'm going to storm the heavens with prayers that I win this! Woohoo! Please make my dreams come true, SnapKnot! :)
