My Photography

By day I masquerade as a common office worker, by night my alter ego: Ninja/Goonie adventurer comes out and dabbles in Photography. My main areas of photography interest are: shooting landscape, closeup, and still life subjects. I would like to expand in to capturing photo’s of people in more candid poses without posing them for the shot. I primarily shoot with Canon gear and have adopted their system.

I struggle with capturing people pictures because posing people is complex, and often makes the subject look foolish which diminishes the impact of the image and the satisfaction of the viewer. Thus I hesitate to take them, although I am anxious to learn more and expand my knowledge.

I currently utilize Adobe Lightroom CC to edit my images. I find that it allows for a streamlined workflow, from importing my pictures easily, as well as offering simple interface for editing exposure, color correction and adding effects. It also works very easily with keywording, GPS coordinates, organizing and sorting, as well as exporting to files, publishing and printing. I will occasionally use Photoshop CC for more advanced modifications and touching up of blemishes, but I find it to be a little heavy handed and difficult to use for most photographic editing.
