I became serious about photography at the end of 2001 when I bought my first digital camera. before that, I had simply "dabbled" in vacation photography using film cameras. Digital photography opened up a whole new world for me. the opportunity to take endless amounts of photos of the same thing to get the shot just right. The instant gratification of immediately seeing my photo. At the end of 2002, I upgraded to a digital SLR (Nikon D100) to benefit from the best of both worlds.
My favorite subjects to photograph are nature and macros, but my photography is not limited to those.
Many of my photos are also available for purchase at http://franziskalang.dpcprints.com. If a photo is not yet available, just email me and I'll upload it.
