It wasn’t until 2008 that I realized I had a passion for photography. I mean, I always enjoyed taking pictures, but at some point that popular activity that everybody does turned into something more for me. I think it is largely the composition of a photograph that sets apart the good ones from the bad ones, and composition is what got me hooked on photography in the first place. I started seeing the world in still frames – at first, maybe just once or twice a month. And then it was more like once or twice a week. And soon, I couldn’t help seeing those “normal,” everyday scenes as an awesome photograph, if captured from the right angle.
I’m entirely self-taught, with no formal training. This website showcases some of my favorite shots – all taken with my Nikon D80. I’m updating it slowly, and there are many more pictures to come; so stay tuned.
This is the world Through My Lens – I hope you enjoy the journey. And if you do (or even if you don’t) – leave a comment! Feedback is always appreciated.
