I started photography in high school (2006) with a film camera and access to a darkroom. Shooting film gave me the training to focus on the subject, how I was framing it, and how to get the exposure I was looking for. With a limited amount of shots per roll I had to make every shot count, developing an eye for composition and compelling images.
When I finally upgraded to my first dSLR I gained the ability to take as many shots as I wanted, making mistakes along the way and learning from all of them. Over the years I developed my own style of shooting, focusing on natural light, long exposures and a sense of motion. The learning process is never over and I strive for improvement every time I release the shutter.
