Instagram PixStoryTeller – Quay Hu

Author: Libby - Printique by Adorama

Every photographer has a story to tell of how they capture the magic they see before them. We are celebrating this by launching our Instagram PixStorytellers. Each week, a new photographer will join us on Instagram sharing their ideas, tips, and tricks for getting the best shot. This week we introduce you to Quay Hu aka @AroundQ
1. How did you start in photography
It all began with capturing moments of my daughter’s birth about 7 years ago. As I grew more comfortable with photography I started to carry my camera around with me every where because I didn’t want to miss that special moment. The more I shot, the more I became obsessed with it.

2. How did you find your groove?
I finally found my groove about 3 years ago, something just clicked in my head. I became more comfortable as I gained experience and found a niche of what I love shooting. Most importantly I educated myself through youtube videos and photography forums. The more I understood and practiced the more confident I became. 
3. What’s in your camera bag?
I currently shoot with the Sony A7RII, Sony A6500 and RX100 V. For those quick weekend trips, I always carry my 16-35mm, 35m, For those longer landscape trips I carry my 85mm and 70-200mm along with the other gear.
4. Advice for others starting out?
Educate yourself on all aspects of photography. Learn how to properly compose a picture and learn how to use every function of your camera. Remember it’s not the camera but always the user. I have seen some incredible images form an iPhone.
