Before photography, I really didn’t pay any attention to the small details around me; I was always so absorbed into things I thought took priority over leisure. From my experiences as a photographer I’ve really learned to appreciate the little things in life that really add onto your personality. I’ve bettered myself as a person as well as a photographer by enjoying my surroundings and becoming more sensitive to what’s around me.
