Welcome to my photography blog and my first blog post. This blog aims to record my experiences as a photographer and other interests.
As an armature photographer, I enjoy many different genres. Currently, my main focus is on street photography which is a broad genre in itself. Many people have theorized about what defines a photo as street photography; I find the most satisfying definition to me being any photograph that has people in a particular scene or evidence of people having been present at some point. Examples could be physical signs such as impressions of footprints on the ground or clothing or trash left behind. Street photography also records people and events occurring in our daily lives; it records life in our cities and in our streets. To me, street photography also includes portrait photography, urban landscape, and architectural photography. In addition to street photography, I enjoy architectural and Real Estate photography, landscape photography, and, recently, videography.
I have used several cameras over the years, as many of us photographers seem to do, from manufacturers such as Argus, Pansonic, Nikon, and now Fujifilm. Each camera and manufacture offered different features and qualities that make each special though all have been a joy to use.
The following are some of my Street Photography photos which I featured on Instagram:
Just a quick introduction for today. Stop by again to read more.
