Photography has become a great creative release for me. I've always enjoyed playing around with my digital point-n-shoot but it wasn't until I got my DSLR in May of 2011 that I truly got excited about it. Something about being able to control the focal depth and light settings intrigued me. I tend to drift towards landscape photography but also enjoy abstract and macro photography. I am self taught and use the vast resources on the internet to both inspire and educate myself whenever I find some free time. I graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering and ended up in the Commercial Construction industry working mostly with biotechnology/pharmaceutical clients in the San Francisca Bay Area. While this pays the bills, it doesn't let me explore my creative side very often...so I have found photography (and making music - www.artofsound.us) as my release.
