Surprisingly enough, photography is the newest art medium for me. I am a long-time drawer and watercolor painter. I took a photography class while abroad in Italy expecting the class to be relatively relaxed. Ironically, the class ended up being the hardest one that I had. To this day I am grateful for my Professor that relentlessly taught me the mechanics of the camera, basic Photoshop, and gave me different projects ranging from movement to surrealism to people. This class laid the groundwork for my understanding of Photography.
