Hey Steemit! This is my introduction.

in introduceyourself •  2 years ago 

Hey everyone!

My name is Andrew, and I recently heard about Steemit by my great friend @jrue. He's been encouraging me to start a profile here, and I'm really happy to join this online community.

Anywho, this is me. And hey, you guessed it! That's my wife Brittany. We just got married this summer. The second picture is of my (step)son Caiden showing off his dance moves. Andrew Brittany Weber Wedding-0123.jpg

I live near Columbus Ohio, close by my two good friends @jrue and @yumyumseth. Here is a shot I took of downtown from an apartment building. W - Waterford-59.jpg

So, to get to the nitty gritty. I'm 25 years old, and am finishing up my bachelors degree in Business Administration at Franklin University. I graduate in the spring, and I can't wait! Ever since I was little, I loved taking my parents camera and taking too many pictures (it was film), and when digital became accessible, I would always mess around and take lots of pictures from weird angles, along with making murder mystery videos with my sister. It wasn't until 2013 that I got a Canon T2i, joined an online 365 project (https://tookapic.com/andreweweber) and started getting more serious. Now, I currently work as a freelance photographer in Columbus, with my main gig being a real estate photographer for the greater Columbus area. I also do weddings, parties, families, portraits, nature etc. Basically, I love taking pictures and am excited to both share my content, and see what other content this community shares!

Here is my verification picture (trying for the first time in my life to grow a beard, ha). IMG_20171218_190216934.jpg

So, I think the ride is almost over. I'll end this post with some of my favorite pictures that I've taken over the last few years. I hope you enjoy, and I look forward to getting to know you all!

This is the milky way in Yosemite National Park in California. I took a trip with two friends of mine a few summers ago, and this night was a huge highlight of the trip.

This was also taken one day after the previous pic in Yosemite.

This is also Yosemite, and if you can't tell, I love this place.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to getting to know more about Steemit and the community here!

Eyyy. Nice to see you here!

Aaay. Good to be here!

Holy smokes those are some great photos! That shot of Banff is super 'framed on the wall' worthy! I have got to learn how to take starscape photos.... it looks so good!

Welcome to Steemit dude! Very happy to have you here!

Hey thanks a lot! My parents apparently agree with you, since they chose that one to put in their living room, ha. I could help teach you to take star pictures if you wanted! Just let me know!

Yes! Nailed it! Your parents have always had great taste (assumed).

I assume you need a super long exposure setting on your camera for star pictures yeah? A manual camera might be my first step.. I've got a Nikon AW1, I'm not sure it'll do it.

Correct. I usually shot around 25 seconds with a 24mm lens. I don't know about the model you're talking about, but it does take some nice gear to be able to capture good stars. It's really fun to do!

Ah... yeah, okay, that's a super long exposure time. Alright! Manual camera hunting here I go! Thanks man! Really happy to have you here on Steemit!

Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions!

Welcome man! Amazing photographies!

Hey, thanks a lot! I appreciate it!

Good stuff dude! That Danny picture is saucy.

Thanks bossman. Just went out to Prairie Oaks Tuesdays with him. I think he froze to death, but I had fun messing around with flash outside!

Looks good! Was it with your umbrella or what?

Yeah, with the cone on the back of his head

Welcome to steemit. Hopefully we can work together in this steemit

Sounds good to me!

Welcome to Steemit mate. Giving you an upvote and follow for your super nice photos but also cos of your hectic beard. I'm 38 in a month and still can't grow a beard for shit :(

Welcome. I have upvoted this post. I am new here too. So far most members are helpful.

My most welcomed post so far is an experience I had when doing crypto trading the first time. It is reaching $18 for potential payout and for a 4-day-old newbie, I guess it is considered good.

Take a look if you like using the link below.
