I have a degree in philosophy, which allows me to look inside the creative process too closely, so I will try and keep it simple. I beleive it is a combination of creativity and intent. I'm also the family cook at home. A few dashes of balance into the composition, with the right tools and don't overwork the recipe.
I use two cameras, both Nikons. Recently though, I have gone almost completely digital with my D50. It's a dream. I also have a macro lens adaptor, an Af-S Nikkor and use Photoshop, Illustrator and Painter as softwares.
My favorite subjects are of nature objects I can play with inside my softwares, but certainly not limited to that! I love to flesh out the subject matter I work with, bring out the elements that can be overlooked sometimes.
