I stumbled into photography since I loved taking photos and experimenting with angles, lighting, colors, etc. It started with marketing and design, then bloomed into photography.
I am considered a natural light photographer, not only because lighting is expensive and heavy-LOL, but because I’m not a big fan of the harshness it creates and the “studio” feel it brings. I very much prefer more natural, fun moments captured on film. The emotion of the moment is what I really want to project when others see your photos. When you put people (especially kids) in front of lights, they stiffen and pose and pull silly faces (some of which I LOVE!). But I guess I’m just more comfortable in a casual setting so I assume everyone else is too. A good photo can be taken ALMOST anywhere!
