I have always been a photography enthusiast, starting in college when I got my first “point and shoot” digital camera. If memory serves, it was a Sony (can’t remember the exact model). I remember using it for the longest time, going out on field trips to the rainforest, river mouths, beaches, and canyons. Taking pictures of random rocks and beautiful sunsets in Puerto Rico. This is where my enthusiasm for photography stems from. Years later I moved to the States (to Idaho of all places) and my passion for photography fizzled a little. Mainly due to the fact that I moved to a different environment, to a different scenery. No more beaches, river mouths or rain forests to take pictures of. However, a few years ago, I started to get back into photography again. I just had to adjust and open my eyes to a different point of view — look for different things.
So, what do I use? I’ve never really liked DSLRs because I think they are too bulky and, honestly, a little intimidating. This is probably why I started looking into micro four thirds. Micro four-thirds systems tend to be smaller, that middle point between a “point and shot” and a DSLR (at least that’s the way I saw it). Now I own an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, usually shooting with a 17mm prime lens. I have other lenses (a 45mm and a 25mm) but some reason I feel much comfortable shooting at 17mm, probably because it works well for most situations.
I do most of my editing either on my iPhone using VSCOcam or Darkroom. Been trying to experiment with other software like Lightroom. I very much enjoy the entire process of exploring, capturing, editing my pictures and sharing my work and the way I see the world but mainly for my own enjoyment. So hopefully I will be sharing some of those pictures here more often. Otherwise, I have some over on my Instagram and feel free to take a look.
Here are some of my favorite shots:
