Photographer: Leah Dee

Speciality: Macro, nature

Biography: Leah is a 21-year-old amateur photographer from Sydney. At school she never studied art subjects, making her foray in photography all the more intriguing. After finishing school in 2007, Leah went on to study Business and Commerce at university.

Whenever she goes out, Leah always takes her camera with her. In April 2010, she decided to pick up her camera and take photographs of anything and everything as a way to relax from her studies.

While not having extensive photographic knowledge, Leah knows that photography is something she loves. She has recently purchased two film cameras and has started to experiment with and edit her photos. Even though Leah's university honours course doesn't give her time to photograph as much as she'd like, her camera is never far from her side.

Whenever I take a photograph, I try and achieve the best photo possible as I really hate to edit photos dramatically; I feel it can take away from the context of the photo. I've moved away from simply shooting flowers and nature to shoot architecture and really anything that looks amazing in black and white. For me, photography is all about experimenting and learning from my mistakes and trying to improve as I go.

Equipment: FujiFilm FinePix S5700, Canon IXUS 210 IS, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T70, Minolta SLR, Holga 120 CFN, Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0.
