themustacheridesagain asked: What got you into photography?
I would have to give the credit to my cousin Anjelica. I guess ever since I was young, I’ve always looked up to her. When I was in seventh grade, she visited me and my family here in NJ/NYC from LA. She had a camera and it just looked so damn cool. She also introduced me to awesome music back then such as Metric, Le Tigre, Tegan and Sara. I just always thought she was the coolest girl ever and she inspired me to pick up my first digital point and shoot when I was in 7th grade. I used that to take photos for my ~*xanga*~ and everything around me. My mom used to always take photos of me and my siblings too. Looking back at photos of us as kids made me realize that I can do the same thing with my own life - to capture moments.
