Hello, my name is Ivomar Brito Soares and i am a Brazilian guy from a small town at the northeast of Brazil called Campina Grande, currently living in Toulouse France where i do a PhD. I have always enjoyed taking pictures and used to take lots of them during my trips, but never really took photography "more seriously". Finally, on august 2008 I was able to move from the point-and-shoot camera world into the "professional" one and bought myself a digital single-lens reflex camera Nikon D-80. This new acquisition boosted my motivation to try to learn a little bit more about this art, and enhance the quality of my photos. By the same time, I have also joined an amateur photography club at Toulouse called Poussière d'Image. At this blog, i plan to publish some selected photos taken by me on my journey to try to be a better photographer. Hope you enjoy them!
