Richard Obenchain Member Since November 2012 Artist Statement A second-generation Angelino who's never lived outside of L.A. County, I'm a bit of a rarity - a California native. While most people think of freeways and Hollywood, California's always been about nature and scenery to me: camping in the redwoods, driving through deserts at night, hiking in the hills, and coasting down the windy curves of PCH.
I came late to photography, and so I'm still getting my "sea legs" as it were; I bought my first SLR in 2009. Still, if you take enough shots, some of them come out looking nice. Additionally, I've started working with timelapse, long exposure, and HDR. With my recent purchase of a Nikon D800, I've also started to play around with video.
