About me

I've always been an "artist". Painting, writing and drawing were my usual outlets for years. I had never really had much experience with photography (outside of your everyday snapshots), until early 2006.
Honestly, I started taking pictures out of boredom. Now, I am almost completely obsessed with digital photography and photo manipulation.
Though I'm very much a novice, I really feel a sense of accomplishment if I complete a photo project that turns out even remotely close to what I had envisioned. The editing process is my favorite part. It's very relaxing to me and it's very easy to forget about other things I have going on while I'm editing. I've been known to be in front of the computer 5, 6 hours or more working on a photo without a break.
All of that being said, I know that I'm no photography phenom, but I enjoy it more than any other form of art I have worked with and I am very much looking forward to further developing my skills. Mostly, I hope others can find some sort of enjoyment in the pieces I create.

P.S. : I don't currently own a camera (lack of funds :( ), so I use any I can get my hands on. Hopefully the image quality will be better and more steady when I am able to purchase one of my own.

    i like your attitude and images...sounds like we've got a few things in common. i've grown a permanent taproot in front of my computer, too. hours and hours later, i might hate it and trash it, and so it goes until the next sun comes up. nocturnal digi beast... welcome to the island. looking forward to seeing more images!
