I am an amateur photograph. i love being on either side of the camera, but i've grown to appreciate being behind the lens a little bit more. I really got into photography by being alone in Nature. I wanted to capture the moment i was experiencing and be able to relive it later on. Most of my photos were landscape and wild animals from my trips around the world, and at Zoos. Portrait was never something i wanted to do as I felt it was more subjective than landscape or animals. People can be very difficult to please. But since my niece was born, I have developped a new interest in portrait- maybe in more of a documentary-scrapbooking way. Nevertheless, it has opened a new door in photography. A new area to explore and to learn from. As a beginner, I appreciate all and any feedback I get on my photos.
