I’m fascinated with the world of macro and capturing moments that have gone in a blink of an eye, so I decided to ‘re-make’ a global image by Harold Edgerton, Milk Drop Coronet 1957. This image freezes the impact of a drop of liquid using new high-tech strobe lights and camera shutter motors, to capture moments which the naked eye couldn’t see. This image, not only beautiful but also proves that photography can advantage human understanding of the physical world. Harold Edgerton was the father of the modern electronic flash which I believe makes it a global image. Harold Edgerton image is on the right.

I am a self-taught photographer who would now be lost without my camera! I fell in love with photography back when I was at school. I am now an Art and Photography teacher myself and inspiring others to pick up a camera. I am really excited for the new adventure ahead of me, studying for my MA in Photography. Photography has now become my loyal friend who's given me so much joy. As a teacher, I love learning and passing knowledge on to others. Apart from nature is a big inspiration, I am also inspired by the moments we lose to a memory. I wish to capture feelings you can keep forever and release when needed. am always looking for a new perspective to view the world around us and to share my experience with others. I love Macro photography because you are forced to view the world from a different viewpoint. I am also interested in portrait photography and capturing special moments.
