A common question I’m asked is “How did you get into photography?” or “What made you start taking pictures?” I thought it would be fun to share my story.

Why I started photography
I started photography because I wanted to capture moments and little things that people often miss. I also wanted to find a creative outlet that was my own, and photography allowed me to do just that.
How I started photography
When I was younger, I always loved taking pictures of my friends and family. It was a hobby that I enjoyed and something that I was good at. In high school, I took a photography class and fell in love with it. I loved being able to capture moments and images that would last a lifetime. After high school, I decided to pursue photography as a career. I started my own photography business and have been successful ever since.
What inspired me to start photography
I’ve been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. My father was a amateur photographer and had a dark room in our basement where he would process his film and make prints. I was fascinated by the process and would often watch him work. When I was given my first camera, a Kodak Brownie 127, I was thrilled. I took it everywhere with me, snapping photos of my family, friends, and pets.
As I got older, my interest in photography grew. In high school, I took a photography class and learned the basics of black and white film photography. I loved the way you could capture an image and controls it completely in the darkroom. After high school, I continued to develop my skills by taking classes and workshops.
Today, I am a professional photographer specializing in weddings and portraits. My passion for photography has only grown stronger over the years and I feel grateful to have found my calling in life.
What type of photography I enjoy the most
I started taking an interest in photography about 10 years ago. I was never really into taking pictures, but I enjoyed looking at them. My father is a professional photographer, and he would often take pictures of me and my siblings. I thought they were amazing. When I was older, I started to take pictures of my own. I found that I loved taking pictures of nature the most. I would go on hikes and take pictures of the scenery. I recently started taking pictures of people as well. I enjoy capturing moments and expressions that people may not even realize they are making.
What my goals are for photography
I have only recently gotten into photography and I absolutely love it. My dad has been a photographer for years, and it is something that I have always been interested in. I finally decided to invest in a good camera and start learning how to use it about six months ago. Since then, I have been slowly but surely learning more about photography and developing my own style.
My goals for photography are to capture memories, moments, and feelings in a creative way. I want to be able to look back at my photos and relive the moments that I have captured. I also enjoy taking photos of nature and landscapes. I find that there is so much beauty in the world around us, and I love being able to capture it through my lens.
How photography has changed my life
Photography has changed my life in so many ways. It has given me a new perspective on the world and has taught me to see the beauty in everyday moments. I never would have imagined that something that started as a hobby could have such a profound impact on my life.
What I hope to accomplish through photography
I hope to accomplish a lot through my photography. I would like to continue to improve my technical skills, become more familiar with composition, and learn how to use light to create mood and atmosphere. I also hope to develop my own personal style and vision, and use photography as a way to express myself creatively.
What I love about photography
I love photography because it allows me to capture memories and moments that I can keep forever. It also allows me to express my creative side, and I enjoy the challenge of trying to capture the perfect photo.
What challenges I face with photography
I started photography about two years ago. I had just gotten my first DSLR camera and was really excited to start taking pictures. I had no idea what I was doing, but I knew that I loved taking pictures. It was a lot of trial and error, but eventually, I started to figure out how to use my camera and how to take better pictures.
One of the biggest challenges that I face with photography is knowing what settings to use on my camera. I am constantly changing my ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, and it can be really challenging to know which combination of settings will give me the best results. Another challenge is finding the right subjects to photograph. There are so many things that I see that I want to take a picture of, but sometimes it can be hard to find something that is interesting and unique.
Despite the challenges, I absolutely love photography. It is a great way to express myself and to share my experiences with others. I am always learning new things and constantly trying to improve my skills. Photography is a huge part of my life, and I am so grateful that I started down this path.
How I continue to improve my photography
Photography has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have always enjoyed taking pictures, but it wasn’t until I got my first DSLR camera that I realized how much I loved it. Since then, I have been determined to improve my photography skills.
One way that I continue to improve my photography is by practicing as often as possible. I try to take my camera with me everywhere I go, and I make a point to shoot something every day. Even if it’s just a quick snapshot of something interesting that I see, it helps me to stay creative and keep my photo skills sharp.
I also make an effort to study the work of other photographers whose style I admire. Not only does this inspire me to create better photos myself, but it also helps me to understand the technical aspects of photography and how to use them in my own work.
And finally, one of the best ways that I have found to improve my photography is simply by trial and error. By experimenting with different techniques and subjects, I have slowly but surely developed my own unique style and approach to taking pictures.
