It gives me great pleasure to introduce this talented young lady who is interested in photography at such a young age. She originally discovered Monochromia by following one of our Main Contributors Elina. I hope you enjoy this post and future posts by Anne-Cécile Gohier’
Hello, my name is Anne-Cécile Gohier’, and I grew up in France in the pretty town of “Maine et Loire”. I’m a young lady who is sixteen years old and I am absolutely in love with books, it’s sort of my escape. I also like drawing very much, and of course photography is a part of my life now. I think I caught the photography bug from my father who also enjoys taking pictures.
On Christmas day of 2013 I received my first camera. I am still in the process of learning every day and my camera comes with me everywhere in all my travels, it’s like my best friend (don’t tell anyone but I even named him “Charlie” haha).
I love all kinds of photography, especially landscapes and nature, but my cats are my most faithful models. I am in harmony with nature, I love to hear birds, the wind in the trees and the activity of the city far away. One day I went to the park in my town early to take some pictures and I noticed three baby deer on my way, it was wonderful to be there and be part of nature even if it only lasted a short time. I love to photograph moments like these. I have a lot to learn and I realize its a constant learning process, as I said, photography is a part of me now.
I had never really approached photography from a purely black and white perspective but it interests me more and more every day. I think of it as new door opening for me.
I would like to say thank you to everyone involved with this blog and I can definitely see myself appreciating black and white more and more.
