Welcome to my BetterPhoto.com gallery.
I've enjoyed digital photography since my father got a Kodak DX6340 for my brother in 2003. I started playing around with it and began taking pictures, mostly of my parakeets. When I broke the camera (which I somehow fixed in early 2006) a month after the 1 year warranty expired (around the same time I was just getting interested in the manual mode), I bought my own digital camera: the HP Photosmart 635. I played around with it while learning about photography at Betterphoto.com and experimenting with different types of photography (landscape and nature mostly) when I finally decided that I wanted to continue to grow as a photographer. I needed a more versatile camera, so after doing months of research, I finally decided to get the Fujifilm S5200, a camera I am very happy with. In July of '06 I decided to get a HOYA Close-Up Filter set for my Fuji to move into the area of macros. Now, I mostly shoot wildlife, birds and insects especially, but when I get the chance I'll get out and try my hand at some landscape, which I also enjoy.
If anyone wishes to, they are welcome to comment on any of my pictures, whether it be a good old, "Great shot, Ariel!" or a constructive, but nice, "This picture would be really be a lot better if you would know such and such photography technique." Also, feel free to email me with any comments or questions. I'll do my best to get back to you.
