Lately, my talented significant other, Marcus, has been teaching me how to take some proper photos, along with editing and helping him out on photo shoots. It’s been an excellent learning experience for me, but of course, you wouldn’t know that because I have the bad habit of not posting any of the photos that I have taken! Sorting through my random folders on my desktop and scrolling through my photos within my iPhone has led me down a rabbit hole of lost files. Now that I have a blog to publish content on, I think it is time to give them a proper platform to exist on.
Photography is turning out to be an excellent outlet to relax, learn, and share my perspective of the world through a captured moment. I can see why so many others go down this route. The personal camera that I own is a Nikon Coolpix that I bought randomly three years ago, but now I do have access to a Canon 60d. Currently, I’m researching to upgrade my life with either a new Canon or perhaps a Sony. This is because my Nikon right feels more like a toy camera, and plus the quality of photography and video is not that great.
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
A few months ago, Marcus and I decided to take a trip out to LA for a random excursion. I had never been to the LA County Museum of Art (LACMA) before so we whipped out his camera, and I become the photographer and he for once became the model! Make sure to click to expand.
“Photography is turning out to be an excellent outlet to relax, learn, and share my perspective of the world through a captured moment.”
This was my first-time shooting primarily in black and white, I attempted to be playful with shadows, random angles, and contrast. Not entirely sure if those are real photography terms, but it feels right with my level of experience. All the shots are of the outside of the LACMA. My sensei usually requires me to shoot in manual mode, that way I can play with the f-stops and aperture to better understand the importance of capturing the right amount of light in a photo.
Looking forward to sharing more of my adventures and photos! Hopefully, I can graduate from novice to professional because I love taking photos.
