I am an artist and photography is my favorite way to learn art! As someone who lives and breathes through my senses and is very sensitive to my surroundings, I strive to try to capture a feeling rather than a look. I shoot raw and edit as little as possible only to enhance what I envision.
My life has handed me a lot of stressful ongoing contrasts to life. So photography is my escape. I get lost in dreamy light, landscapes, and real people. I am only about 1.5 years in with a more capable camera. But have been enjoying it since the disposable camera days! I never pick up my camera and feel like I know a lot! Actually, I feel like it is a challenge every time! But that is what I love about it. It will be a lifelong practice that I will cherish learning and expanding through. - Ri
