Tell us about your background in photography. How did you get started, and how long have you been into it?

Learning about tips and tricks from others, seeing other people's passion and learning about what gear they use and recommend. Basically just feeding my passion for photography as much as I can.

What type of photography do you enjoy the most? People, landscapes, animals, fine art?

I don't have a favorite photographer actually. I am all over 500px - http://500px.com/-L-photos - and see so many amazing photographs from so many passionate photographers all over the world, that's it's hard to have a favorite.

What kind of gear do you use? Do you still use film or are you all digital?

This is where I need the advice from a group of other photographers. I believe that it's not the camera that makes the photographer, but that point of view can only take you so far if you are aiming to be a professional photographer. I have limited funds and can't afford a really good rig, so right now my Canon G12 goes everywhere with me and that's the only decent camera I own. I need to start researching and getting advice from others on what gear I need to upgrade to.

Introduction

Hi! I'm Leah Stohs and I am very passionate about photography. I have a lot to learn, but already know that I would like to start making my passion a career as a professional photographer or photojournalist.
