If you asked me years ago how I felt about photography, I would have said, “As long as I’m behind the camera taking the pictures, I’m fine.” I have always been camera-shy so I have always opted for being the photographer, just to get out of being photographed. I still feel that way but I did not actually develop a love of photography until on a whim; I bought a new camera because it was pink and I thought it was cute. I have since upgraded to a different camera, which I love.
I have taken so many pictures of my dog that when he sees the camera come out, he instinctively turns his head. Because of the constant “battle” with him, I decided to start taking photographs outdoors as well.
All of my photos are untouched, with no filters.
Being self-taught, there is still so much to learn but one thing I have learned is that taking photographs brings me peace. I hope that my photographs allow you to step into a peaceful place as well.
