How long have you enjoyed photography? What got you into it?

I fell in love with photography when I was in my primary school. As a small kid, I started admiring wonderful pictures on internet and printed materials. Then, I wanted to take those pictures by my self. To do that, I bought a digital compact camera for myself and started experimenting. After sometime, I realized that the compact digital camera does not provide me the flexibility to create pictures that I wanted. Therefore, back in 2010, I decided to buy myself a DSLR camera (SONY Alpha 230). That's where I got more serious about my photography. Since then, I have been shooting with DSLRs such as Nikon D3100, Nikon D90, Canon 7D, and currently I am shooting with Canon 5D Mark II. In January 2013, I started my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Digital Photography at The Art Institute of Michigan. I am expected to be graduated in 2015.

What kind of camera do you use, and what is your favorite lens?

Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon[masked] f/4

What type of photography do you most enjoy (e.g. portraiture, landscape, macro, street photography, nature, candid, etc.)?

portraiture, candid, and landscapes

How would you like to improve your photography? What are your goals?
