Please indicate your status as a photographer: Beginner, Amateur, Advanced Amateur, Semi-Professional, Professional:

I'd say I'm in between Amateur, but I'm very knowledgeable for an amateur. Having a science degree makes it easy to grasp how light works and my art background helps with understanding composition. I probably will never be interested in being a Professional in any capacity, but you never know.

If Advanced or Professional, please mention your areas of experience:

This is required, but I didn't say I was either. I'd like to learn more about flash photography though since most of my work is with incidental lighting.

How long have you been involved in photography:

Most of my life. I got my first camera at the age of 7 and set about posing my friends and my older sister for the camera. They thought it was a fake camera (it looked like Mickey Mouse) - boy were they shocked when we got the pics back!


Many of you may know me since I'm in a few photo groups in the area. I mainly enjoy nature photography, but I like photowalks and similar groups since I might never branch out to other subject matter otherwise.
