Hello! My name is Sarrah- I'm a 23 and have recently moved from Washington D.C. to Portland! I have a new camera and would love to learn how to use it better and take advantage of all the beauty of this city/state! This group sounds ideal!
My interest sparked in College, as I had several friends who majored in Photography and Photographic Journalism. It allowed me to appreciate the many intricacies and complexity that goes into a good shot. I have only been in Portland for a week, but have made numerous excursions to Forest Park, the Coast, Multnomah Falls, and even just treks through the city to take photos.
I really enjoy photographing nature/landscapes. However, I've recently been very interested in Americana- shots of urban decay, for example. Photographing people candidly also intrigues me. I suppose I've got a wide array of subject interest!
It seems like a great opportunity for a safe, open environment with women who also want to learn or enhance their photography skills. It is an opportunity for me to gain some new skills myself, get to know the Portland area better, and meet some like-minded friends. I definitely need some help with my new camera, too! :)
