My name is Ilianna, 34 years old. What else ... ?
Well ... I just enjoy living and travelling and ... now and then I take photos in the process. I'm by no means a professional photographer and will never become one. I don't even consider me a senior amateur but I dream of becoming one ... Love and passion are at least already here so ... there's still hope, no ... ?
In fact, I've just been contaminated by the well-known bacterium "passion for photography" when I was young. I think the contamination goes back at the age of 6 when my mother offered me a small automatic Kodak, not a toy, I real one. I can’t forget my surprise when I got my first shots printed … the very first one was such a success … the definition of modern abstract photography! ;o)
I didn't ever learn photography in school but I do admire beautiful pictures as far back as I can remember. I got the chance to travel a lot, for personal and professional reasons, and got used to keep my camera at reachable distance. I just love capturing! What? Everything!!! From landscapes, nature or architecture to portraits and life's little moments, really everything. But I haven't ever learnt how to do so and how to take technically correct or good photos. I just use my instinct. After all, what counts most for me is to immortalise THE place or THE moment ... And guess what ... surprisingly, my pictures turn out to be some of my fondest memories ;o)
I went digital in autumn 2002 and that revived my enthusiasm and my passion. Photography became a major pastime for me and from then on, there was no turning back!
The experiment goes on ...!
Many thanks for stopping by my gallery and ...
Don’t forget, I'm always up for constructive comments and criticism ...
Happy shooting to all of you
