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.
