ABOUT ME: I INTEND TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THIS WEB-PAGE VERY SOON. I like the name of "ALVORA NICOLASA".
Who Am I.....?
Amateur Photographer....I am......
I mean amateur in the original sense (derived from the Latin word meaning lover): one who may be as competent as a professional but is motivated by a love or passion for the activity, one who engages in a pursuit as a pastime rather as a profession.
"Love and passion are not always part of the professional's tool kit, but they can be part of yours."

I enjoy photography as a hobby when the opportunity and time presents itself. Unfortunately, it has never been a ‘full-effort’ or ‘full-time’ thing. It’s been an enjoyable but never ending attempt to learn and improve on various photography skills and techniques. The challenge continues.
I prefer using outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting is more variable than studio lighting, and while it presents unique challenges, the payoffs of mastering the light in such situations are many.
New technique’s I’m currently interested in and trying to experiment with and trying to learn are, the “strobist” technique with ‘high sync”. That is, shooting outdoors with detached flashes at variable settings/speeds. To help with this endeavor, I currently use two hot-shoe synced flashes and three ETTL “Pocket Wizard’s”.
Other techniques that have my interest include “H.D.R. photography” and “Multiplicity”.
It’s my intent to update the gallery/portfolio with new images, with the new techniques learned and applied.
