L. A. Scaccia, Martinsburg Member Since July 2008 Artist Statement I'm a 23 year old graduate of Marshall University's former W. Page Pitt School of Journalism & Mass Communications. I bought my first camera the year I started university and I've been told I've "got an eye" for it. My preference is for highlighting beautiful things in nature, especially macro, and some of my favorite subjects are chandeliers/light fixtures, flowers, and insects. I typically shy away from photographs of other people, though I have dabbled a bit with arguably decent results. I now use a Nikon D3200 with a DX AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens.
Besides photography, I've been writing fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and copy in varying degrees since 1999, and I've always had an affinity for language. My primary other languages are Spanish and Russian.
