Photography is both a hobby and a practical way to improve my skills as a CG lighter. When I'm out with my camera, thinking about exposure, lens choices, aperture, and framing, it's like a live training session for my day job. And it goes both ways—my experience with lighting in animation gives me an edge when I'm taking photos. It's all about understanding light and color, and how they fit together to create the right mood and look. Check out some of my favorite photos below; they're snapshots of how I see the world and how my professional work shapes that vision.
