I am a serious hobbyist, using a Nikon D90 camera with various lens, including a Nikon 16-85 mm and Nikon 70-300mm. I enjoy nature, landscape, and macro photography, but I have also been delving into portrait photography, especially self portraits. I have a self portrait project on my blog called the Body Series. I find inspiration in everything, whether it is shadows on the side of building to the way a leaf is positioned on a sidewalk. I believe there is inspiration everywhere if you learn to see what is not readily visible. Photographers I love are Man Ray, Annie Leibovitz, and Elliot Erwitt to name a few.
