I've been wanting to join a 365 project for some time and finally decided to go for it and im so glad I did I've had the opportunity to see other peoples photography and had the chance to be inspired on here im so excited to see what photos I will take
here is a little about myself
I am a goofy, funny, awkard, silly, outrageous, hyper(sometimes), happy average teenager and an amateur photographer that fell in love with taking pictures ever since I got my first camera after I wore that camera down I decided I wanted to upgrade my camera to a DSLR camera but found that they were to expensive to buy at the moment but I was able to convince my grandma to get the Nikon P500 it takes great pictures (despite that it's not a DSLR) I'm really enjoying the Nikon P500
I mainly take pictures from around my house I dont really have a specific type of photography that I like the most I just enjoy taking pictures of anything that I find interesting which practically means if a object, building, person, animal, plant, place in nature etc catches my eye I have to get a picture or I feel like I missed a once in a lifetime picture lol so if your close to me you'll see me carrying a camera almost everywhere I go its all about being in the right place at the right moment in time I like to experiment with different types of photography and I especially love/enjoy to take pictures of my pets/the wildlife(animals and Insects)/nature(Food, Flowers, and Plants)/high-motion(fast moving objects)/travel(places I travel to)/macro(close ups of different things)/landscape/portrait/still life/time-lapse/under water around me
Ever since I got addicted to photography I've found that every time I go outside Ive gotten a better eye for things like when I see a twig or something else that's interesting I would normally have never thought about it again but since I've gotten into photography I am more keen on seeing something I wouldn't have seen if I wasn't into photography so I got to say I have more attention to detail and its made me into a better and more creative person
I found the following online by another aspiring photography and it describes the reason I love photography "I love capturing the simple everyday moments we sometimes take for granted. I love the little details of life, the things you might normally miss unless you’re paying attention.
I get incredibly inspired by following other photographers work, and seeing things in new and different ways through their eyes." ~ Lisa Epp
Photography was just a hobby for me at first. But I never thought it would become my passion, my life, and the way I best love expressing myself.
Some people express themselves through dancing, writing, singing, drawing, doing sports, playing music...... but I express myself through photography I just LOVE photography Im afraid to say I couldn't live without my camera my camera completes me I use it practically every single waking minute it is almost always in my hands looking for the next thing to photograph Im so grateful to God for giving me the talent, the ideas, and things to photograph without God nothing would exist so thank you God your the best and I Love you with all my heart!
Im a photography nut lol for those of you that are curious on how many pictures I take I can take from 100 to a couple 100 photos a day I know crazy uh but I love it (I run out of space on my SD card very quick sometimes but I just burn the photos to a Cd and then continue snapping pictures) it really depends on the time and place sometimes I'm really lucky and find a lot of things to photograph and other times I'm not so lucky but I really try to go outdoors everyday to photograph all I can find sometimes I'm outside taking pictures for hours
I have to say I'm really passionate about photography I feel as if im in my own little world I just Love to capture moments in time it is my one joy when I've had a though day I just grab my camera and start snapping away and I'm suddenly happy
Photography has become really therapeutic for me its my way of relaxing and releasing all the tension and stress after I had a hard day it's like playing video games or listening to music haha
I look forward to getting inspired and seeing other peoples interesting and beautiful photography and learning ways that I can improve on my photography I hope I can keep things interesting for you guys!
Thanks a bunches for viewing my photos and your +Favs, Follows, and Comments (I love to hear what you think whether it's a complement, constructive criticism, or encouragement) they are greatly appreciated
I hope my photos will take me far and that you find my photos interesting, enjoyable, inspiring, unique, beautiful, and good and I sure hope you Like no Love my photos :)
UPDATE : After seeing how much I used my Nikon P500 and that I wanted to get a DSLR one day my grandma decided to get the Nikon D5100 for me after she saw it in the newspaper ads for 200$ off
I'm so excited to post some of the pics I took with the camera and I can't wait till I can get some lenses for it
I know I know its not the price of the camera that counts its the talent behind the lens when it comes to taking great pictures but its still nice to have a DSLR camera
My photos are taken with the Nikon P500, Nikon P560, Nikon D5100, IPod Touch 4th Gen, IPad 2nd Gen, and a Tracfone cellphone

To me, photography is an art of observation. Its about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
~ Elliott Erwitt
Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment.
~ Elliott Erwitt
“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.”
~ Henri Cartier-Bresson
Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.
~ Imogen Cunningham
"People think that all cameramen do is point the camera at things, but it's a heck of a lot more complicated than that!"

If a day goes by without me doing something related to photography, its as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up

You don’t take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.
