easy as 1, 2, 3

Here are some of my most favorite pictures! 
I spent some time living in Los Angeles, California where my love for photography took off.

Now what if I told you I took these pictures with a little point and shoot camera that doesn't even have a lens that can zoom!!!

There are 3 easy steps to taking a great picture with a point and shoot. 
1. ALWAYS CARRY A CAMERA.
 The top picture was taken on a hike one day at Runyon Canyon.  I was strolling along the trail, mid conversation, looked up and noticed the beautiful city of angles staring right at me.  I just knew I had to have the shot

2. JUST TAKE IT. 
Just take the picture, even if you are not sure if it will turn out of not.  You will never know unless you take the picture.  Many pictures I have taken have been spur of the moment shots.  The Hollywood sign in the 4th photo was while I was driving in the hills between houses.  I pulled over, stepped out of the car, took the shot, and kept driving.  Who would have known?

3. BE INSPIRED.
Take pictures of something that inspires you.  happiness, laughter, memories, love. Inspiration does not have to be placed right in front of you.  Create it! be abstract. look for a meaningful shot.  If the picture means something special to you it will come through to others.
