Photography sort of snuck up on me. I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures, but I never really understood just how accustomed I was to having a camera in my hands until I left mine at home one day and the realization hit me that I was still mentally framing my surroundings, looking for the perfect capture. When at last I got my hands on a DSLR a few years ago, I felt immediately at home.
Having spent much of my time as a child exploring every inch of our garden and the nearby woods, I gravitate towards macro and nature photography out of habit, but I also do the occasional 365 day challenge to make sure I don’t get too firmly nestled in my comfort zone. I enjoy finding beauty in unexpected places and drawing the spectacular out of the mundane.
