My Photo Back Story:
I had been experimenting with photography most of my life, but back in 2008 I bought my first DSLR camera, a Nikon D80 and my life has never been the same since.
The idea behind purchasing my first real camera was that I would be able to continue my study of composition and further my knowledge of animation cinematography by practicing with focal lengths, depth of field, etc on the weekends. Little did I know that what started out as fun experimentation would turn into a true passion and something I would pursue with blissful glee and excitement for the past 6+ years.
Photography has brought so many wonderful things into my life and continues to be a huge source of joy and fulfillment. There is no greater thing, then being in front of God’s marvelous creation, or being overwhelmed by beautiful architecture, and getting to capture it with my camera. It truly is a gift!
