A few days ago I watched as my Canon fell violently to the floor in my kitchen, obscuring the lens and not be able to fix it back, therefore, it was not able to survive, making this its last fall. Lets start off by saying that yes, it was a power-shot, yes the lens are not removable and yes always buy a camera with removable lens. Today I tell you that you wont be seeing no more work from my canon anymore, besides the photos that I took before it died. But I will instead take photos with my GE x500 automatic camera that gets on my nerves because it only has auto-focus and not manual focus *aggravation* though it has identical quality as my canon, when the focus is right. When my canon broke, it brought me back to my first "serious" camera, the Kodak Easyshare, yeah some photos from that camera still remains here in my gallery, anywhoo, i remember how distraught i was because that's when i realized that i love photography and don't really see myself doing anything else...well other than my writing, i want to do this for as  long as i can (i.e. the rest of my life). now what im focused on is saving up money and buying another canon camera, but a dslr, and take better care of it because i really want to better my skills as a photographer, because with a power shot, you just cant do that. Wish me luck! i just hate that by the time i have enough money to get the camera that its going to be shitty Rochester winter weather again, that sucks! you live and you learn.

My name is Nakia R. (YES I AM A HIGH CLASS CHEESE BURGER) ;) (PHOTO NOT MY OWN)

I've been interested in photography ever since I was fifteen. I received my first camera when I was sixteen, and since then I have never been without a camera.
My interest in photography sparked when my good friend Nicole introduced me to this website(Deviantart), before then I never really had any thought about photos, definitely not taking them myself.
It wasn't like my first intention was to view photos, my primary goal was to view all anime related things, but one day on the home page I saw a very nice picture and instead of just viewing it form the homepage , I clicked on the link and when I read the description I quickly learned that a sixteen year old boy took that picture and that struck me, see the idea that I always carried was that only older, white men could be photographers and/or you had to have a big wad of cash to get into photography, but no, that wasn't the case.
So I started to pursue photography and now I am proud of my progress, and experience with the art of photography over the years. see I am twenty now, soon to be twenty one. But I know that I still have a lot to learn.

For those of you who view my gallery here on DA are probably wondering to yourselves, "what progress?" well, to be honest I am weary of putting my work on this website, not because I don't like the website anymore, its just I cant trust that my work wont be copied and reproduced to be used as profit from someone who doesn't deserve it, so I keep my lower quality work on DA and here and there I may upload something just to show. But believe me, I have been taking photos non-stop.
