Spotlight on …

.

I started my photography interest dabbling around with a basic point & shoot digital camera. I attended car shows, watched how other photographers shoot the vehicles. I took a photo editing class, at Chaffey College. My classmates saw my car editing work, and thought I have been doing photography for a while.

On Black Friday 2008, I noticed that the Nikon Coolpix P80 camera, was on sale. I spent the night in line to buy it. I started doing more photography, going to car shows, public events, street photography and joining Flickr and other photography groups.

By March 2014, I had joined the RC Photo Club. I bought my first DLSR camera, the Nikon D5200. This camera really got me into photography. I caught the photo bug, I was looking for every opportunity to go out and shoot.  In March of 2017, I went to my first WPPI Expo in Las Vegas and entered my business card into a drawing. To my surprise, I won. I was extremely lucky because instead of the A6300 which was advertised, they had the A6500 and Zeiss 16-70 4.0 lens, which was just release, right before the WPPI 2017 show.

I learned what I know today about photography by watching videos online, taking classes, attending workshops, photo conventions, and reviewing articles. There are a lot of resources these days that photographers can access. Being an active member of the RC Photo Club, has helped me in my photography work. I am currently one of the Club photographers, and the social media coordinator, and also a member of the RCPC, Board of Directors. This involvement allows me to interact with other photographers, who are always willing to assist me.
