My name is Michael (yes, like the boys name). I am 28 and I live in Colorado. I ADORE photography and am really trying to better myself at it!
I have always loved photography, but wanted to be in front of the lens, rather than behind it. Until I saw some amazing photos and just HAD to know how it was all done! My brother bought me my very first camera, and while it has a light leak, I still adore it to pieces. I’d planned on taking a photography class in high school but my schedule never allowed. I had too many electives and needed some ‘real’ class time. lol! I ended up buying a Nikon for myself 4 years ago. I picked it up and was a little taken aback by how intimidating this whole camera was. I put it away and didn’t use it for a good 4 or 5 months. I decided that it was stupid to just have it sitting there. So I started messing with all of the gadgets and gizmos and I fell in love. Absolutely head over heels in love and I haven’t looked back since! I am completely self taught (if you couldn’t guess). I’d rather learn my way, then have someone tell me what I should be seeing. In my mind, art doesn’t work that way. I like my viewers to see what I see, how I see it, why I see it and then walk away with their own perception. I like messing with the focus, color and lighting so everything is unique! I hope it comes across that way! In March of 2011, I purchased a Diana F. I am still working with it to learn all it can do, so maybe you’ll see some of those photos, here, too!
