Hello, my name is Liju Augustine and I live in Chicago. Photography is more than just a hobby to me. I don’t know how I got passionate about it, but I remember borrowing a Russian made ‘Zenith’ from a friend of mine, and using it to shoot flowers from our house garden. I was fascinated by how that camera aligned the two half circles in the viewfinder to form a perfect circle to indicate the correct focus. That was many many years back, but that probably was the first spark, that induced in me, the interest in photography.
Since then, I’ve owned a couple of p&s film cameras and a Nikon N80. I was able to develop the ‘photographer’s eye’ using all these cameras. But, to be honest, even with that excellent N80, I’ve never made any serious efforts to master the art of SLR photography. But all that changed after I got my D90 and my interest in photography (#photography) quadrupled (at least that’s what I would like to claim), since then.
As with most of the photographers, my initial focus was on landscape photography, but in the past few years, my focus is more on flash photography and events. I’ve done many small and large events and so far the response has been encouraging.
