When I was 15, I discovered my Flickr.com. I was working on a school art project, I stumbled upon an image I loved. When I went to see who had taken it, I was stunned to find out she was a 15 year old girl - like me.
I spent hours that evening looking through the photos other teenagers had created. A whole new world opened up before me, and I was hooked.
The next morning, I found the Nikon DSLR my parents had, went into my bedroom, closed the door, and spent hours on Youtube learning.
I’ll admit that the first couple of months into my photography adventure were messy. I struggled to understand how the camera worked, but eventually, I got it. I’ve never looked back since, and now the camera is like an extension to my body.
I want to help others feel that way too; to know and understand how a camera works, as intuitively as I do.
I’ve been using Instagram almost since it launched. I was a very early adopter, and have always loved it. I spent 5 years working on Atlas Magazine’s Instagram account, and eventually builing it up to 50,000+ followers. My own account is now at 6000+ followers. I love Instagram, because I love photography.
