I took New York Institute of Photography and learned from other professional from fields.
Canon EOS 5D Mark III | Canon EOS 650D
Canon 50mm f/1.4 | Canon 70-210mm f/3.5-4.5 | Canon 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6
Absolutely, I live photography and all creative art work. Photo shoot is the very beginning moment for me to discover my subjects.
Sometime I shoot pregnant family before baby is born, but soon they come back with new born baby and I watch them grow. That makes me feel capturing history and gives me meaning, too.
Forgot the sources of printed magazine....
I am little short and my height produces unnecessary double chin for woman shoot. So I prepare small ladder (or drone pic in the future??)
