Thursday afternoon I had the pleasure of learning new photography tips and tricks from skilled food lensman, Matt Armendariz. Mind blown! His ability to require a surprising picture of an easy and lovely bowl of radishes lighted  a fireplace inside Maine to actually take my photography to following level. try dark photography and very hear what my mind is attempting to inform Maine.

While I retrieve and forth between lightweight and ethereal photos to a lot of moody, i'm attempting to seek out my vogue. however the foremost rewardful a part of photography is there's invariably one thing new learn. ne'er stop learning!
