I fell in love with photography in early 2010. I went on a vacation out west to Alaska and then drove down the coast from Seattle to San Diego along Highway 1. As you can imagine, I took a lot of photos, using a canon point and shoot camera. Along the way, I would email some to a friend as I traveled. At the time I was unemployed, and had no clue of what I wanted to do. During a conversation with this friend, she brought it to my attention that I had an eye for taking photographs and that I might want to consider it as a job.
So over the next eight years I have been honing my skills. After a few years of learning from internet sights and taking thousands of photographs, I enrolled in a DSLR camera class. This class taught me how to be in control of the camera instead of the opposite. I was no longer intimidated by all of the settings the camera offered.
I have also learned how to allow nature to guide me to what it wants to be shown. It is as if I am being divinely led to these locations, and the angles in which to take the shots. It is an amazing feeling. There are no words to describe the gratitude I have for the beauty that this world offers us all.
