I had an interest in photography early on, but hadn't taken it further than just casual vacation pictures until after college when I realized that I completed my degree in Biological Sciences and hadn't taken one 'fun' class. As a graduation present to myself I bought my first DSLR, the Nikon d40 and began my journey as a self-taught photographer. I love taking photos of the world as I see it, but trying to express myself through photography needed something more than just focal lengths and apertures. I found Photoshop and threw myself into it. It was a creative outlet that allows the inner drama of any photo to be unleashed. I will admit that I use many techniques to push an image to something more, the key is to always allow restraint to keep the viewer grounded to this reality, well, mostly.
Tight crops, composition and drama!
