My name is Lora, but I’ve been known to respond to Faye as well.
I first go into photography when I was twelve years old. I found my mom’s old camera from the 80s and took a couple rolls of black and white film with it until it decided it was time to die.
On my sixteenth birthday, my dad presented me with my first digital camera, a small point-and-shoot camera, nothing extremely special. That’s when I truly fell in love with taking pictures. It went everywhere with me and I just played around and learned with every shot I took.
I’m twenty-one now and I shoot mostly with my Nikon D100. I enjoy shooting landscapes, but I prefer to take pictures of people, just because there’s more of a story to tell. I’ve had a couple commissioned jobs, but I’m definitely still a beginner. I just keep taking pictures and learning with each one.
