A person, a moment, a story.
When I was twelve I received an Ipod, the first model with a camera. I remember being very excited and taking many pictures. I messed around with features in editing apps. I was mesmerized; it felt sort of like magic.
At first, the idea of photography to me was how combining cameras and lights could affect one's mood by capturing an image, a piece of art. As much as I was fascinated with all this I had envisioned myself pursuing my strongest passion film. Now photography and film are equally important.
During my freshman year I had a friend taking photography class. After seeing what she could do in Photoshop I knew I had to take that class. My instructor Lech Slocinski explained how a camera works, and also I learned about the history of photography. I have continued to learn when I took advanced photography class. Now that I’m graduating high school I’d like to thank him for helping and encouraging me to become the photographer I am today.
I’ve always liked to look at the photographs in National Geographic magazines, often wondering what photographers had to go through to get pictures of all the stunning scenery, or how close they had to get a lion to take that photo. Photography seemed to be an adventure that captured moments that could be enjoyed by millions around.
Portrait photography is what interests me the most, viewing beauty differently. A person, a moment, a story. That is what I try to capture.
