camera Canon EOS 80D; Sony A6500

One look through Delana Nalesnik’s portfolio shows that she expresses her passion for art through her photography. Her affinity for capturing fleeting moments started at a young age - as soon as her hands grew into holding a digital SLR camera. Since then, she has gained experience in capturing pictures for nearly every occasion: graduation, sports, parties, backyard gatherings and family portraiture, to name a few. If Delana does one thing different than the rest, it is undertaking the sophisticated task of doing more than just taking a picture; she uses every shutter to create an everlasting rendition of not just that moment, but a rendition of the personality, opportunity, courage, excitement or love within it. She prefers to use gorgeous outdoor locations as a backdrop so you can just relax and be yourself instead of being stuck in, what she calls, "a stuffy studio with more equipment than an operating room." As she believes the heart is a camera's true lens, one of her favorite quotes is, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”

Rindra R.
Washington
camera Nikon D750; Sony Alpha a6300

I've had a passion for creative arts ever since I was a child. At an early age, I would pick up my saxophone and try my best to jam out with my father and uncle . Throughout my teenage years, I was arranging and producing music as a hobby. My interest in photography peaked during my senior year at George Mason University (GMU), while I was taking a photography course. I was amazed and fell in love with the process of being able to capture human expressions and emotions down to the millisecond. After graduating from GMU with a bachelor in Information Systems & Operations Management, I decided to expand my knowledge in the art of photography through books, attending seminars and shadowing local professional photographers at weddings and portrait sessions.

How did you get started with photography

I got started in photography at a very young age. I participated in an after-school arts program that included photography workshop when i was 11 years old. Soon after I asked my mother for a camera for my birthday which was a small point and shoot camera from walmart. With that camera I learned the ins and outs of photoshop and paint shop pro and turning my point and shoot pictures into art. Since then I have been improving in skill, eye, equipment, and knowledge.

What do you love about your job?

The thing I love most about my job is that I love drawing the beauty out of in an ordinary setting. Especially in photo journalism. I love taking raw life and turning it into art when people are going on about their normal day. Being able to capture the beauty that was happening when no one else was paying attention.

What are some of your favorite places in Washington to take photographs?

Favorite places in my area to take photos would be Washington DC, National Harbor, Alexandria VA, LaPlata MD, I love the farms, open land, and old barns in southern MD, and I love Baltimore city near the harbor,
