Looking back at my life, photography has always been something I loved.  It started back in high school, my mom gave me my very first camera, a Minolta.  Back then, digital photography did not even exist.  I learned everything using film and then processing my own pictures in a darkroom.  Now I use a Nikon D90 and am entirely digital.  I have come a long way in terms of technology, but somehow over the years there was a standstill in my learning progress of photography.  Throughout my college years, I took a lot of pictures but never took the time to improve.  I then got busy being an interior designer and hiring others to take photos of my work and put photography aside.  As of a few years ago, I purchased a Nikon D60 in hopes of getting back into it.  My creative spirit was renewed and my only regret is I didn't start sooner to focus on photography as I have been told I have a lot of potential.  I am still young enough to pursue this side of my creativity and I think starting my own DA account has really pushed me to exceed my own boundaries to learn more and more.

I am currently just a hobbyist but hope to eventually get paid for what I do.  I know I have a long way to go but I am working hard on it.  I know competition is fierce and there is so much talent out there.  What have I learned in the process?  You might laugh but aside from using my Nikon D90, I use my iPhone on a daily basis and are addicted to apps such as Instagram.  I found out that amazingly, my iPhone can sometimes capture photos that a DSLR cannot even get.  This just tells me that sometimes photography isn't about the camera at all.  It is about the images.

I am learning in leaps and bounds and as I said earlier, if I had continued this passion from when I was in high school, who knows where I would be now.  I am not discouraged, however, because I still have my whole life ahead of me to learn and to make something of this.  I would love to turn my passion into a business.
