To me, photography is more than just taking a pretty photo; it’s an emotional outlet. I am a very introverted person, and struggle with finding the right words to say. Having a camera around soon became my way of expressing myself and communicating how I am feeling. I photograph a variety of subjects, in various different lighting scenarios, and focus on how to capture the emotion I am feeling when taking a photograph. My photographs are not an accurate representation of reality. I use lighting and color as expressive tools to enhance the emotional response to each subject. My photographs are a window into how I view the world around me.
