Photography

I’m not a professional photographer, but I do like capturing my memories through photographs. My parents always had a 35mm SLR that they would bring on vacations although I usually used a disposable camera until I got my first 35mm point and shoot and later digital point and shoots (compact Canon models). I did a limited amount of underwater photography with one of my small cameras until the underwater housing disappeared somewhere between Palau and the Philippines. Generally, I prefer landscape and architectural photographs. I take limited pictures of people and I’m not great at capturing them.

Now, I have a Canon 60D DSLR and take it wherever I go. My first trip with the camera was South America in 2013 (Argentina, Chile, Uruguay). Since then, I’ve taken my camera all around the world. I’ve had a telescope since I was about 10 and I connect it to my Camera to take pictures whenever something interesting happens in the sky.
