After taking photos (jpegs) for years, I'm just now learning how to shoot in RAW, setting the light meter, using Lightroom to edit... I'd like to learn as much as possible, especially lighting and editing.
For over a decade I've traveled to new countries and continents and love meeting a variety of new people from various cultures along the way...
Nick Brandt, not only for his gorgeous photography, but for trying to save the elephants and their tusks. Sabastiao Selgado for his amazing photography from around the world (he's an incredibly well-traveled man--an inspiration). Recently, I discovered Elena Shumilova, and love her for her subject matter (children and animals) and her magical lighting. Her style is one I'd like to emulate.
I'm a teacher who loves to travel and take photos. Excited to meet other photographers and learn as much as possible!
