Humble beginnings

August 02, 2016  •  1 Comment

After about 8 years away from photography (I was still just a beginner), I have finally reunited myself with a real camera.  I've survived, barely limping along, for all of the interim years with a decent enough camera on my phone.  I would have picked up sooner, but I dated a photographer during some of those years and didn't want to tread on her realm too much.  I was glad to take a backseat for a while, and knew that I would eventually come back, full force, to my love of capturing.

 

I attempted to resume this journey 2 years ago, when I was about to travel to Iceland for the first time.  Unfortunately, my newly purchased DSLR was lost on the way to the airport in DC.  I was deeply saddened by the loss of the opportunity to capture all of Iceland's majestic and vast beauty, properly.  I am still, to this day, saddened when I look back on the pictures that I did manage to get on my phone.  Even though they are fantastic, they do not even measure to the quality that I would have been able to achieve with a proper camera.

 

So, fast forwarding to the now, I relocated to the San Francisco Bay area in April 2015.  Since being here, I have been in constant awe of my surroundings.  I look around me almost 24/7 for new things to see and appreciate.  I have travelled to a few other countries and states, since then and shortly before.  I am starting to stack up the number of beautiful captures that I have been missing out on, all this time.

 

I finally re-purchased a DSLR about 2 months ago, and I've been on a non-stop shooting spree since then.  I'm determined to make up for lost time, and to develop my hobby, further, into a professional-grade craft.  It excites me to be able to capture exactly what I see, and sometimes what I don't see (things that only a lens can capture), and to save that for myself.  Now, I'm sharing some of that with you.

 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
