“Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment.” – Elliott Erwitt
I always remember being interested in photographs, however it was not until I first learned to shoot with a manual camera that I really understood my love of photography. Like all things feelings and emotions change over time, I became burnt out and I put my camera down…
Almost a year ago that changed while trying to cope with things going on in my life I slowly began to take photographs again as a way to process and deal with my own emotions. Photography became a release for me a way to escape and feel a bit more like myself. What was the main factor in my taking photographs again… I stumbled upon a photography sharing app known as Instagram, by going though and looking at others work I became inspired and once again my love affair began.
There is not a day that goes by that I do not take at least one photograph, some are just brief snapshots, mere glimpse at where I am at a precise moment while others are more thought out and composed. During those days when I’m not walking around with my camera… well I always have my phone.
All of the photographs in this gallery have been shot using an iPhone4 some using the native camera, others where taken using apps such as Instagram, Streetmate and Camera+. For macro shots I use and recommend both the Olloclip system which is an all in one lens system as well as the 4-in-1 Lens system by Brainydeal which is an incredible deal at a lesser price.
