Hey everyone! My name is Talena and I am a photographer and painter. I have been in love with photography for as long as I can remember. I am fascinated by the beauty the world has to offer. I enjoy spending time editing my pictures by brightening the image, highlighting the colors and adding more definition to the shadows. I can spend hours beyond hours working on one picture. I have always dreamed of traveling the world and taking pictures of the places I have been and ventured in. When I lived in Idaho, everywhere I went I would always take pictures. I consider myself more of a nature and adventure photographer but I am also going to locations where my Aunt officiates weddings to take pictures for her. I am ordained as a wedding officiant as of June 14th 2017.
As you probably saw in my gallery I am an artist. I have been drawing since I was 6 years old and once I hit high school I grew more of a passion for it. The teacher I had was a huge help in my life when it came to perfecting something. My favorite things to paint are birds, landscapes and seascapes. In one of my pictures there is a galaxy themed painting. That is another kind of style I like to work into certain paintings too. My favorite kind of media is charcoal. I love the darkness and highlights that goes into charcoal drawings. Also, I love to get my fingers and arms covered in the charcoal because that's my version of showing how much work and imagination I put in to my work. Same goes for photography, there's been times that I go in too far and get bitten by bugs and scratched by plants, or worse coming close to stepping into quicksand. I get lost in my work because that is my universe. I love art itself, there is so much you can do with it.
A little bit of the basics of myself: I am 20 years old, and just moved to Indiana June 11th 2017. I am working on a portfolio with my art and photography, also I am working on writing my book called "You Have No Power Over Me." My favorite colors are black and deep blue. I am focused on being known for my art and photography and become big in the industry.
