I started Photographing the beginning of 2014 after I sold my business and left Margit Publications - a color and trend forecasting company for designers for the apparel and home furnishing industry. For me taking photos everyday is a must. When I am out photographing I no longer experience time, just stay with it until I get a good image. To be able to take pictures is an ultimate gift and in the process of doing it I feel I use all my acquired skills; photography and design in color. In so doing I am hoping to reflect my emotional and mystical feelings before editing with Lightroom, Snapseed and occasionally Photoshop.
