Why Lens Size Doesn't Really Matter
Do my pupils go large when I see a thicc lens practically dragging on the floor beside a too-cool-for-school photographer walking around with a smug smile on their face like they’re God’s gift to film?

The Colorscapes Masterclass
I fell in love with photography back in Fall of 2015. I was 15 years old at the time. I always had a fascination with the Universe and I thought it would be very cool to be able to capture photographs of the stars. I knew I wouldn't have much success with my phone camera at the time, so I did a little research on the internet to learn more about how I could start taking star photos with an actual camera. One of the first things I read about was this thing called a DSLR. At the time, I wasn't all too sure what that was. I knew it was a camera of some sort, but I had no clue why it was called a DSLR. Regardless of my lack of understanding or knowledge, I asked my parents if we had one and it just so happened that we did!
Patterns of Nature
When I started applying a mirror effect to my nature photos, I quickly became enamored with the results. Beautiful intricate patterns emerged. Many different patterns could be made from the same photo. I totally fell in love and wanted to apply this technique to all my nature photos to see what the resulting pattern would be. Over the course of a couple of weeks, I had created more than 500 unique images.
Greek Gods And Goddesses but Make it Fashion
I am a Photography student at Nossi College of Art, but I also really enjoy fashion and costume design. Currently in my fine art class, I had to choose a project that would keep my attention for an entire 15-week semester. I chose to do a series of environmental fashion portraits, editorial style, themed after the Greek Gods and Goddesses, and I wanted to create the wardrobe. The assignment requires that the series must contain twenty images and they must all be different. To me, that means making 20 different deity portraits. It will be challenging, but so far it has been really rewarding and it fuels my happiness.
THE LITTLE LAKE
One of my favorite things to do when I have some free time, is to go for a walk with a camera in hand. I have always loved capturing a moment of beauty or interest and the art of reflecting everyday life in a unique way. Living in the mountains and being surrounded by lakes and wild life gives a budding photographer, such as myself, an abundant and beautiful palate of readily available landscapes to photograph.
I have to be honest. I’m no professional. I love photographs and have lots of friends that have pursued photography on a much more professional level. However, I do love experiencing life and a huge part of experiencing it is the art of capturing it. The Latin word captura from the root cap- means ‘seized or taken’, and that is exactly what a photograph does; it takes a moment in time and allows you to take that “time” with you. We’ve all heard the expression “Carpe Diem” translated “Seize the day” and this aphorism captures the very essence of photographers everywhere. Whether professional, mere amateurs or a hobbyist, we live to seize the day by taking captive every fraction of a second we can; taking time as a prisoner of our affairs. This is how I seize my days. This is how I have captured my best moments with WILDlife.

Landscape Photography: A Complete How-to Guide in 2021

The reality of photography
This is a true story of the reality of being a photographer. When I was 17 I got my first job working at a photography studio. We mainly took pictures of families, newborns , newlyweds Etc. When I got the job I was very excited, but I was terrified at the same time. It was my first time shooting in a professional setting so instinctively all these questions came to my head oh, and they haunted me. “ what if I'm not as good as I thought it was” “what if the client hates their pictures” “what if the camera breaks in the middle of a session”. Naturally I tried to brush it off to give the client the best photos that I could give them. a family of four came into the studio one Friday evening, your typical American traditional family. they wanted some newly updated Family Photos, mom had just given birth to a beautiful baby girl, and they wanted some with her in it. I spent 2 hours shooting this family. Making sure I had every angle, position, lighting Source Etc. When the session was done I spent another hour and a half editing these pictures down to every Last Detail, I even edited out fingers that weren't supposed to be in the place that they were. The whole thing took me three and a half hours of My Blood Sweat and Tears. When the photos were done I called the family back to view them. Stop them down, put the flash drive in the computer, set all the photos up and put it on a slideshow. I wasn't really looking at the client as the photos were passing by, but I could hear scoffing and grunting. When all 35 images ran through its course I paused and asked the client these simple words, “ so what do you guys think?” The question that haunted me finally became a reality. I was followed by the words ``I hate these pictures, it's not what I wanted .” I remember feeling a sense of shock run through every nerve, bone, artery in my body. I was speechless. I genuinely didn't know what to say and the only thing that came out of my mouth was. “ I hope you have a good day”. Not only was that lost money for the studio but that was a reflection on my photography. From that point on I really took a step back and thought about how I wanted to approach each session. The photos in that session we're beautiful. It was my demeanor that made the session unbearable for the family. Being a photographer isn't about the poses and the angle , it's about capturing every family's uniqueness and their beauty and how they love. It may sound crazy but in the four years that I've been doing this I can remember every single client's laugh, their smile, how they have interacted with their family. I remember it all. It's easy to pick up a camera and start clicking a button. Oh, it's not easy to capture what each person is like outside of that photograph. That's what makes this field so unique. We are giving families something not only to put on their wall, but something that they can look at and say “ man, that's my daughter, sister, mother, grandma.”
