Ever since I was a young kid I loved taking pictures and naturally understood the concept of composition. I later learned about; the rule of thirds, leading lines, symmetry, patterns, texture and depth of field. I was always amazed with bokeh’! Now to me those are not so much rules but tools or contents that are added to a photo to make it boom or more interesting. I always had a basic understanding of photography as a child.
In 2010 I started to learn more about photography when I got my first DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera (Canon EOS Rebel T1i). I progressed and started to shoot in manual mode. I would often go out with my friends and take pictures. We called it “the Photo Rampage.” You could call it a photo walk. I loved having Photo Rampages because it guarantees you come back with great pictures and it’s a lot of fun. When I graduated from high school in 2011 my dad got me a Canon 600D and a telephoto lens as a graduation present. I started getting better quality images and kept upgrading from there. Now, I’m starting to do more flash photography.
During the summer of 2011 I went to a summer camp at the Canadian Forces Base Gagetown, NB with the Royal Canadian Army Cadets. There I worked for UPAR as an Image Technician.
