My Passion for Photography: how it began

Do you all remember how my photography started? It all started with my two Shar-Pei, Hiro and Ziva.
Constantly I captured their adventures, and that's how I rolled into the world of photography.
I looked for tutorials on You Tube and learned about the exposure triangle in online workshops. 
With my first SLR camera in hand, I enrolled in several workshops.
Thus, I could further apply everything to Hiro and Ziva to create the most beautiful picture. 
Perfection is in my blood, and I always strive for excellence in everything I do.

Eventually, then, wedding photography turned out to be my fascination.
There I discovered the magic of color gels with my flashes, which I used to create special effects.
Also for this I attended several workshops to become familiar with the different flash techniques.
Experimenting with this technique gave me unprecedented creative freedom.
Just like newborn photography gives me that same feeling. Because here too with creating different set-ups I can express my creativity.

Today I want to pick up that thread of color gels in my studio photography.
During maternity shoots, I will again experiment with this fascinating technique.
I also got new inspiration again at a fascinating online event with Ana Brandt. For example, there were several photographers here who taught on various topics.
A model is due tomorrow, and I can't wait to try new techniques.
