teapots-cupsOnce upon a time (as I was graduating from high school), I considered myself an amateur photographer.  Lately I’ve been inspired and motivated to take photos again, especially with the ease and adaptability of smartphones, along with several photo applications.  

In a way, these images are but attempts at documenting my ongoing tea experience.  To be able to translate that experience into the realm of art makes it very exciting and explorative.

All of the images are digitally taken with an iPhone 4 and are manipulated with the use of several photo applications, including Decim8, Mirrorgram, and Instagram.  You can view a gallery of my photographs on my website or on Instacanv.as.
