I'm Sarah, a 21 year old Maltese hobbyist photographer and fourth year student studying for Doctor of Medicine and Surgery. I am an avid thinker and enjoy experimenting and exploring the unknown.
Over these last couple of years, photography has become more than just a hobby - it is one of my life's essentials. It has changed how I see others and the world around me. It is an entertaining and challenging learning process, while also being a medium with which I can discover myself; by bringing the images I see in my head to life, expressing the thoughts and emotions I experience and immortalizing what my human eyes cannot. You will notice I am not fixed to a single genre of photography, because I find something special in capturing photographs of all kinds.
I've loved art in its many forms for as long as my memory serves me. I was 13 when I first started to realize the particular love I had for composing and capturing images with the compact cameras I could get my hands on. By means of my own effort, in 2011 I saved up enough to buy my first dSLR and, ever since, I have not regretted it.
There are so many things and people out there that, through their photography, inspire me on a number of levels - be it with ideas, emotions, beauty, or knowledge. I likewise wish to be such an inspiration to others with what I do.
Outside photography, I love music, sleeping late, travelling, science, thinking, shopping, drawing/sketching and crafts and gaming. Among the little things in life that I have a soft spot for are butterflies, sparkly objects, rainbows, strawberries, chocolate/sweets and blue eyes. I enjoy occasionally playing guitar and have previously performed on stage. While enjoying my alone-time, I do also very much enjoy socializing and engaging in casual conversation with interesting people from all over the world. I always have something to keep me busy, so boredom is not a word in my dictionary.
I've been around dA for over four years, just with a different account on which I shared more drawings rather than photos, as x-Sassy-x. Starting afresh sounded like a better idea.
Canon EOS 600D
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
My latest lens addition. Super tiny, adorable, and perfectly sharp.
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Dream come true. Made possible as I won a voucher for winning a local competition.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Used to be one of my favorites and have used it a lot, but I prefer my 40mm now.
Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Only use this if I really require wide-angle or handy zoom.
