Nneka (A light study)

To be proficient in any art-form is not an over night process. In photography apart from the technical part, the two aspects that we aim to master IMO are understanding lighting and the ability to know when to snap, which means different things depending on who you ask. I enjoy what I do, live photography, be it in the street, a social event. a wedding, a concert etc I enjoy the fact that not all the elements are under my control... in short I like the challenge of anything can happen. In a concert.. the lighting may change or even disappear (Don't ask me how by the way). In the street, anything may occur from the weather to even dropping your gear... as I painfully found out recently. As in everything You have to devote yourself totally to be successful at it. -Elliott Erwitt. About the artist: http://www.nnekaworld.com/ . She got talent for days.
