After buying my camera in late September 2014 and discovering that a quality camera helps you take quality pictures, I haven't stopped snapping pics. This site showcases some of my favorite ones. I have no formal training in photography, but I am addicted to the sound of my shutter.
What I Use
I have a Canon EOS Rebel T1i 500D DSLR camera. I use a Canon 35-80mm 1:4 - 5.6 zoom lens and a Canon 50mm 1:1.8 fixed lens. I only know how to use a fraction of the camera's functions.
Why I Do It
It's about immortalizing moments. It's about finding the beauty in everything around me. It's about looking at things in new, exciting ways. It's about keeping my eyes being open.
