Painting with a camera.
My interest in arts started with traditional painting and it was not until after I started learning how to edit images on a computer, that I became interested with the digital medium – trading in my inks, paints and brushes. Photographic equipment is now my current tool of choice but the end goal is all the same.
Photography is a form of art but it's also about memories, experiences and preservation. Photography can and should be about so much more than just taking pictures. It encourages us to stop and take a second look at our surroundings. It forces us away from the computer screens. It encourages adventures. It triggers memories. And it documents the important things that are always changing.
