"Shoot a roll every week or you have to pay me $100." That's how I started my photography journey. My friend lent me his favorite camera under this condition. They couldn't be random photos too; these photos had to be taken with intention. So, I set off on this journey with his (now mine) Minolta CLE.
Shooting with intention opened my eyes to the things I perceived. I looked at things with intent, trying to understand why I felt the urge to capture a moment. I mainly shoot photos of people because I feel strongly about emotions, and gravitate to find subtle emotions in the mundane daily life.
