Journal History



nakia r
Artist | Student | Photography
United States

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.
  • Listening to: The First Snow_ Origa
  • Reading: Night World
  • Watching: The Walking Dead
  • Playing: Alien Isolation
  • Eating: Wavy Chips and Ranch Dip
  • Drinking: Iced Tea (not so ice cold) :)
This summer i was forced to say goodbye to my good old friend, my canon camera, Powershot. I landed a PT job and saved some money to buy ... a Nikon D3100.I now have a dslr, no more frustrations with point and shoots anymore. things are looking up now, our futures are never foretold but for now i am happy enough to actually say that i'm happy. look forward to seeing some new and improved photos from me. And i want to take this time to say thank you to all of watchers who have been with me for a while or for those who just joined. 

..I just hope this moment of peace and relief last for a while. 
I hope everyone out there has had a good day.

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?
