Abstraction

In this creative game, it is important that we keep going whether your outlet is photography, painting, writing etc… Before diving into creating abstract,I had refuted the idea simply because it would not be expected of me.

Patterns and Geometry

Light is literally the foundation of every image that we create. light gives shape and meaning to the scenes that we witness. As a fine art photographer, being able to effectively…

Minimal Gear For My architectural Photography

After purchasing my first DSLR, I distinctively remember being very excited and my choice. Since my aim was to learn, I purchased every magazine out there that had a “How To……………” on the cover. Inside every one of these magazines, I found a new camera or new lens review, a camera comparison and with all…
