    I believe that the world is full of art and I enjoy capturing images that are full of color. In 2012, I took a drive by myself into a different route. Equipped with my first digital camera, I stopped and took pictures of whatever caught my eye. Since then, I have studied photography on my own, taken thousands of images, developed my style and invested in better equipment. As for now I haven’t found my main passion in photography, but I can be found photographing everything from animals, events, models, buildings, anything that capture my interest. I live in Newington, CT and many of my photos are from Connecticut and some from Massachusetts. I enjoy the time taking photograph especially taking my time on camera settings, lights, and overall to capture a perfect photo. Most of my work I learn through online tutorials from professional photographers, reading photography magazines and buying DVD tutorials. I enjoy sharing my talent and skills with friends and family and people who enjoy looking at photos. The most about photography is that it utilizes both the creative and technical parts of the brain and that there is a never-ending amount you can learn. My goal for the future is to travel other places where I never been and take streets and landscape photography.




    Some of the of the images are computer generated and some are not. All images were taken by me. Currently I process my images using two programs. Manipulation is generally limited to adjusting the levels to give the image the best look possible. Occasionally, I will remove distracting elements or crop images.
