i am 17 and i live in missouri. i absolutely adore photography. i like that it can capture what we may not usually notice. i love macro shots for this reason but unfortunately i cant always capture them well with my p&s. im hoping to get a nice dslr soon with help of graduation. i have two dogs and two cats and my beloved snake neiko who are great models. i am artistic in general. love to draw, ceramics, and wire wrap. but i have gone through many phases of art and im sure i will continue to find more to do. i love seeing all of your photos and hope that this will continue to help me get creative!
