Since the start of 2011 I have taken several online classes on videography and photography. As I progressed from handheld camcorders to DSLR cameras, I quickly fell in love with the art and science of great images. As a physicist, I marvel at the power behind even the entry level optical lens and how much creative power lies in capturing light. I would not consider myself to be a National Geographic professional, but I have taken several online classes that have allowed me to become self taught in this field. My summer job working retail allowed me the opportunity to teach customers the basics of this art. I hope to one date teach this as an elective or host a photography club.
