I’ve always loved photography. From the time I was a kid I always had my camera with me, clicking away and letting it do the work. About ten years ago I purchased my first DSLR and endeavored to get into photography and learn how to use it to create better shots. Instead of letting the camera decide the settings, I wanted to learn how to get the most out the features it offered.

Much of my learning experience was trial and error, tinkering with settings to find what worked. I also looked to professionals in the field, and picked up tips and tricks to improve my skill.

What started as a hobby has become my passion, and I want to share my knowledge and work with others. You can do so much when you escape the limitations of auto mode, and you’ll start to explore the world in a whole new way.
