I love my family and newborn clients so much. But for some reason when I return home from travel and look through my images, my heart just sores. Travel, architecture and street photography make me SO happy. I absolutely love being an adventure street photographer. Capturing beauty in the moment, documenting what is already there is my true photography love. This documentary-style definitely spills over to my work with clients and is why I love lifestyle portraiture so much!
I do not consider myself a macro photographer at all, and only had my 35mm lens with me, but I still loved capturing the beautiful plant life. The Gardens by the Bay had the most gorgeous collection of plants. The light in there was so fun too!
Singapore had the most amazing architecture and cityscapes! I loved walking around and just trying to see it all. When I am shooting travel and street photography I like to use my 35mm or 50mm lens on my Canon 5D Mark iv. It is as light as possible with a SLR! I recently bought a Mirrorless camera and while I am still getting used to it, I am even more excited to take it on my next trip!
My amazing travel companion! She was such fun to explore this new city with!
My favorite part of Singapore was the wide range of cultures. It truly is a melting pot of southeast Asia. Within five days we visited a Hindu temple, Buddist shrine and an Islamic mosque. We went by a Catholic cathedral and shopped in shops with goods brought in from Turkey, Iran, India, China and Thailand. Dumplings and homemade noodles from China was one of my favorite meals. We ate vegetarian Mediterranean food that was to die for! It was such an amazing life experience to see so many cultures coexisting and working hard to find their own joy.
Nighttime in Singapore was my favorite time. They are all about lights and color in Singapore and it was so fun to document!
Of course you cannot visit Singapore without spending time in the stunning Changi Airport. What a place! I loved the light and patterns created in the space. I could not stop photographing it!
