Canon 5D MkII, Lightroom2013-Present

A number of my friends practice photography either as a hobby or at a semi-professional level, and after years spent envying their work I finally bought my own camera in 2013. I'm aware of some of the conventions and history of photography, at least as it relates to the world of fine art, having studied art history in school, but I know very little about it in a direct sense—key movements, photographers, theory, etc. As a result photography for me is a way to try and formulate my own opinions about what makes for a compelling image and what obligations it may have to the viewer, and the viewer to it.
