I love being a scientist, but I equally love being a photographer.

It all started when I got a Polaroid camera for my 10th birthday. Little did my parents know that I would become such a shutterbug.

I didn't take photography seriously until this year when I decided to take off the training wheels and use only manual mode. Thus began the "year of manual mode." This has pushed my photography from the I-have-no-idea-how-this-shot-happened-but-I-like-it (aka "happy accidents") to cool-that's-exactly-how-I-imagined-that-would-photograph.

I even joined a studio photography group to move my people shots from snapshot to true portraiture.
Here you will find examples of my progress.
