My Cat and Talking About Fears


I uploaded so many other cat photos but I sometimes also want to upload photos of my cat Shyna. You will find one at the bottom.

On one side we’re happy to still have time with him, on the other side it’s just sad to see the slow process caused by … Continue reading Thinking About Disease And Death

That’s basically how I often got a chance to gain experience in portrait photography as well. As with everything, you have to learn it, by just doing it. When I go through my library, I see how my portraits got better and better, although there is probably still room to improve.
