How do you edit your photos?

I'm from Benghazi, Libya.
How long have you lived in Ottawa?
I moved from Benghazi to Ottawa during the summer of 2014 so just over 5 years ago.
How did you get started with photography?
I've always had a passion for photography since I was a child. I started off with a disposable camera when I was in elementary school and then slowly moved to a point and shoot camera whenever I travelled. Then, like most people, I started using my smartphone. In summer 2016, I decided to take it more seriously by purchasing my first DSLR and here I am now.
Have you ever studied photography or taken a photography class?
No! I'm currently studying marketing at the University of Ottawa, and never thought about studying photography or taking a class . I don't believe you need a formal education in photography in order to be successful, but it definitely wouldn't hurt. That being said, becoming a photographer involves a passion and an eye that academic classes may never be able to give you, and you can definitely learn on your own.
