I am a serious hobbyist in arts/photography. I have been learning from friends, books, articles and every opportunity I have to be taught by a fellow artists. I am very open to feedback, let me know what you think I can improve upon and I will gladly accept the advice. One can only learn and improve if constructive feedback is given and absorbed.
I was born and grew up in Minas Gerais – Brazil, which is where my love for photography began. Back a few years, I found myself drawn to High Dynamic Range photography and edgy post-processing. Nowadays, the dynamic range can be easily manipulated in Photoshop, so I mostly have abandoned the need for bracketing. My love for photography took off when was I given a digital SLR camera, which has allowed me to bring me to print all the colors and beautiful contrast that I was seeing.
All my pictures are post-processed. Some might say my work is “artistic, edgy”, and that is my intended goal – to start with a photograph and transform it to a visual art creation. I never called myself a “photographer”, but a better description would be “mixed media and visual artist.”
I myself cannot totally explain my pictures, all I can say is: they are my vision, my dreams and that is what I want my audience to see as the final product.
I currently work as an Systems/Software Engineer at a biomedical company that does cancer diagnostics instrumentation. I live in the beautiful state of Arizona.
Thank you so much for your feedback and time, I appreciate that and will make sure I look at your work as well.
