In my last article, “Documenting History and Amplifying Voices" I reflected on the excitement of documenting and disseminating current events through editorial photography. Yet, as I was choosing the photos to accompany the article I started to ask myself, "Am I putting myself in danger when seeking those supercharged, raw and real emotions?"As I said before, maybe it's the actress in me, but what I most love about editorial photography is capturing heightened, uncensored emotions.... continue reading

Well, not exactly.I suppose I should rephrase my title to more correctly say, "My Family Hates the way microstock has changed me".Yup, it has.

When I started with photography a year ago, wide aperture lens ( f 2.8, f1.4) were all that I desired as I wanted to shoot in low light situations and also get the pleasing bokeh in almost all my shots by using the widest aperture.

Thus I started to shoot with smaller apertures to get that DOF. Moreover the... continue reading

It was hard for me to take this image at night with the toilet lights on, so I waited til day to take this shot.I had a problem. There was no place for me to put my gorillapod. I was literally holding onto my breath, trying to take a shot in one hand while flushing the toilet in the other. The results were... you know...Then I had an idea. I brought... continue reading
