I started to take my first pictures when I was nine years old. My parents bought me a little yellow Nikon Coolpix S31 camera for my birthday. One day I took a picture of an antique, green kids tricycle and my mom was somehow blown away by it, and that really started my passion for photography. When I take my pictures the only thing I do is either use a basic filter or leave the picture the way it is. I mainly focus on the angle and the natural lighting of the landscape, person or animal I’m taking the picture of. My most favorite objects are often abandoned, rustic, antique, and vintage scenes because I feel they tell a story. I take these pictures because I want people to feel something when they look at my photographs, and discover a story of their own, and for them to personally connect with the photograph.
