Exploring the boundaries of what I can currently do with photography. I have the passion and desire to follow dive into this craft. I bought my first DSLR last year, I had to save a few checks into order to do just that. I bought a Nikon D3300 from B&H and my photography journey continued after years of using point and shoots plus a trusty super zoom camera.
I sometimes lose all hope of becoming a photographer and try to do something else but I always come back to this craft. In turn, I waste time by doing this tiring cycle. I’m better but I still have a long way to go.
My goal with photography is to embrace my ikigai “to evoke” and to tell stories plus document life. It’s been a tough journey, I’ve failed sooooo many times that I tried it quit but I know deep down that I would regret it. Life is too short for that b.s.
I’m going to give my crafts my all for the once time in my life no matter what I have to do.
These two photos were taken at the San Francisco Aquarium. I was on a trip with my little brothers, my mother, and my step-father. It was a very special trip for me as I don’t get to see them a lot. It was nice to embrace the big brother role and to see their smiling faces as they enjoy themselves.
I like the first shot, however, I would like to see another shot with less grain. I wonder if that would make it better or would it make me dislike it? We won’t know.
