Welcome to PetaPixel

This is the first post of what will hopefully be an exciting journey…

First, a little about myself. My name is Michael Zhang, and I’m an entrepreneur, photographer, and web developer. I have a computer science degree from UC Berkeley, and have been passionate about photography since I started taking photography seriously in high school.

I started this blog both to improve in photography and to pass on what I learn and have learned. PetaPixel will hopefully become the kind of blog I wish existed but never found on the web – a blog geared towards those who have mastered the basics of photography and camera work, but want to learn more and improve the quality of their photos.

Welcome aboard!

    I’m glad this is being done. Everyone can learn something new. Photography is my hobby and to be able to learn more is a great thing. Look forward to a lot more posts. :)
