This is image entitled "IMPULSE" is one of the first photos I took with my first digital SLR back in 2005. I bought the best camera I could afford at the time - a 6 mp Canon digital rebel for $999 at Best Buy. I have always wanted to be a artist/painter since I was a child and would beg for paints and art supplies for Christmas. I just loved the colors and textures! This image represents a turning point in my life. While I was painting an abstract piece (most of my paintings are abstract even if I didn't intend for them to be lol), I noticed how pretty my paint brush was swirling around in the colorful pigments and I took a picture of it with my brand new Canon Rebel. WOW! I didn't much like how the painting turned out, but I was crazy for the photograph of the process. I still paint every now and then, but photography has become such an obsession and love affair. I guess my dream came true about wanting to be an artist, but as a photographer instead of a painter.
