When I was in college, one of my friends let me try her digital camera. I snapped a few shots, and she commented that the composition needed work. As a music composition major, my friends found that hysterical. Years later, I found myself with a camera in my hand once more. I knew nothing, and any success I had was by happy accident. Over the past few years, I’ve been reading, studying, learning about photography. I’ve visited museums and perused books. I’ve gotten my own camera, and make time to spend with it regularly. As it has grown from a passing hobby to a passion, my skill has grown with it. Now, there is as much intentional success as accidental. I am still exploring, searching for my own voice as a photographer, experimenting with techniques and equipment. Generally, I find myself interested in capturing the essence without being so literal about capturing the whole and in liminal spaces.
