Everything has a beginning, whether it be small and seemingly insignificant or dramatic and captivating.
My freshman year in high school I decided to take a few photos of the sunrise on my camera phone which at the time was silly but with a few editing tools on the phone I captured what would be the beginning of a new found beauty.
It struck in me an idea that I could begin to capture and express myself through photos. At that point I knew very little, if anything about photography. I like most people always had used a point and shoot disposable camera to capture events like birthdays and other everyday get togethers.
My junior year I took a photography class that began to open my eyes to a whole new world, cliche as it might sound, it enlivened in me something I never thought possible. The ability to truly and purely express myself.
I continued on in photography with my film camera before learning about the enticing world of digital to now reach this point in my life.
Part of the beauty of life is our expressions of heart we like to call personality.
This blog post, my first, is to document the personal growth of my art; like spring time blossoms grow and bloom and allow life to be seen at it's peak. I hope you are able to grow with me on this journey we call life :)
