About Guruchild

I'm a 25 year old self-employed webmaster. I travel around locally taking pictures of things that peak my interest, mostly macros and landscapes. A shot which draws one in, a frame which pleases the eye, a sharp yet subtle contrast, a distinct feel of atmosphere and environment. I strive for these four things in my pictures. I've always been told I have a natural eye for design so I thought I'd try my hand at photography. I feel I have much to learn but this drives my interest.
