My passion started when I was a sophomore in high school and I was able to take photography. I haven’t stopped taking pictures since. It wasn’t until about five years ago that I started doing close-ups of images that I take. With my camera I create a whole new world. I can get close and break down an object and present you an image that you otherwise may not be able to see. Getting up close and personal provides a whole new experience and perspective of an object.
By using multiples of my close ups and manipulating them, I create a whole new image. In many of my manipulated photos, the different photos that were used to create it can be seen, but it is not always obvious what it is.
