Nature Photography- The Beginning
The world around us was still asleep when Rosa and I got on the road at 4am headed to Haleakala. I'm not used to getting up early since I'm a nocturnal creature. But I couldn't pass up the chance to watch the sun come up at Haleakla and photograph it.
Although I've always loved photography, I shot in "auto" for a long time. I knew nothing about camera settings, rule of thirds, golden hours... But if I ever had to pinpoint what made me become serious about photography, I would say it's nature photography. I wanted to take better photos on my travels, to capture what I saw and experienced... Photography became an extension of me and what I see.
I was awstruck by the beauty and magnificence of Haleakala. And the rest of Maui, of course. I did the best I could to capture the breathtaking sceneries that surrounded me. By no means would I call myself a nature photographer, but photographing nature feels familiar to me. Like visiting an old friend...
