At the beginning of this summer, I found myself with a lot of free time and not much to do. That’s when I decided to try my hand at photography, and I quickly fell in love with the art form.

As I practiced and experimented with different techniques, I began to develop my own style and improve my skills. I realized that photography is not just about taking pictures, but also about capturing the emotions and essence of a moment.

I’m excited to continue to grow and learn as a photographer, and I can’t wait to see where this newfound passion takes me. But for now, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos that I’ve taken this summer. Each one tells a unique story and captures a special moment in time.

For all you camera nerds here are the specs of the camera I use. (Nikon D90 is a DSLR camera that was released in 2008. Some of its key specifications include a 12.3-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor, an 11-point autofocus system, and the ability to shoot up to 4.5 frames per second. It also has a 3-inch LCD screen, an ISO range of 200-3200 (expandable to 6400), and the ability to shoot 720p HD video.)
