Hi! My name is Katayoon but most people call me Kathy.
I am a self taught photographer and digital designer.
When I look back, there has been a passion towards photography in me for many years, but film photography was too expensive to explore much back then. I have been re-discovering my desire for photography for a few years now and internet has made a great impact, enabling me to see the work of great photographers from all around the world and be inspired by them, and also for all the sources I was able to use and expand my knowledge and improve my work, thus take my photography to the next level.
As you can see for yourself, nature photography is what I enjoy the most. Interestingly enough, I live in a very busy and polluted city in which I do not always find good spots to photograph. Maybe I should work on taking urban style photographs as well!
I have a Nikon D90 which I got it as a birthday gift from my lovely husband. I mostly use the 18-105 mm f 3.5-5.6 kit lens that came with it but I have recently bought a 40 mm macro lens which I need to use more often! I do my edits using a combination of Adobe Lightroom 5, Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Capture NX2, and use both Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Illustrator CS6 for designing.
