I'm a sys admin/web dev/jack of all trades, master of none, etc... for a small software company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Thats what pays the bills.
My hobby is photography. I'm more passionate about it then I am skilled but that doesn't keep me from trying.
Why do I like photography
I don't know. I'm awful at explaining feelings of the heart and mind. I also wish I had some beautiful explanation. But I do not.
I've enjoyed photography ever since I had a photography class my senior year of high school. I didn't take the hobby on at the time because this was 20 years ago. Photography was expensive then. I put other simpler pleasures first. But about 6 or 7 years ago when DSLR's fell to a price my budget allowed for I was all in. And I haven't looked back. I love technology and gadgets. I love to create. Photography is a good fit for me.
What do I like to shoot
Just about everything. Animals, landscape, street. I would love to shoot sports but have little access to it. I'll do some HDR but don't really seek it out. I shoot all natural light, as I don't have the money nor the time to invest in strobes or learn how to use them. I have taken some lighting workshops and I've been overwhelmed (maybe not overwhelmed but at least whelmed) with what goes into it. I do have interest in it and maybe one day I will but currently there just are not enough hours in the day.
