officially a blogger!
Hello! After spending lots of time upgrading my website and picking out good photos for it, I am officially starting my blog! I will be sharing my photographs in more detail than on my portfolio, but also will share the information about photography that I continue to learn about. And probably some posts about New York City or shopping .
I have loved taking photographs for as long as I can remember. My best friend and I have become the official ‘photographers’ of our group of best friends from college (officially known as the Six Pack), and my family always counts on me for capturing our holidays! I bought my DSLR, a Canon Rebel XSi, in July 2009 with the kit lens (huge mistake!) and stuck with that until almost a year ago. I now shoot with a Canon 5d Mark II. In March of 2012, my cousin asked me to take her engagement photos, and I knew I needed a better lens. I did a ton of research and decided on a Canon 50mm f1.4 which I rented for the weekend. I had so much fun taking the photos! That experience really propelled me into wanting to focus on photography as a serious career and not just as a hobby. I bought the lens I rented, signed up for some classes around NYC and volunteered my services to family members. I’m continually learning and so excited to share my photos with others. Thanks for reading!
