My journey into photography started with nomadism and anxiety. In 2016, after living in New York City for 7 years, I decided to give up my apartment, drop my cat off with my parents, and travel while working remotely as a software engineer. During this time, I struggled with periodic anxiety and began to meditate every morning.
When I purchased a used Sony A5100 from a friend, I realized that photography itself could be a form of meditation. I began to shoot during every hiking and climbing trip, and eventually, daily. I started to learn about those pesky things like the “exposure triangle”, composition, and how to use lightmeters. I finally concluded that I should put together a portfolio and start sharing photography learnings (and hopefully a quirky story or two).
My current kit consists of my trusty Sony A5100 mirrorless camera (with a replacement body after an unfortunate jungle downpour) and the following lenses:
Rokinon 12 mm/f2.0
Sony 16-50 mm kit lens
Sony 55-210mm/f5.6 telephoto zoom lens
