My name is Mercedez Granados I am 18. Im originally from LA but now live in San Diego. My photographs are self inspired and are very simple. I don't like putting things in certain positions to make an "Ideal" photograph. I take pictures the way they are. Because not everything in life is set up for you. So in order to make your way through life you gotta take what you got and make it work. When I edit my photographs I only edit the brightness, contrast, saturation, highlights, shadows, and vibrance. I Don't like changing them completely because it just ruins the picture. I look up to Ansel Adams, David Hockney, and Annie Leibovitz. They all have their own style and make the photographs look very interesting, I also love Clark Little his photography is amazing I am a huge fan of his work. It has so much Harmony and Value. I would love to be a Deep Sea Photographer. Just knowing that 95% of the ocean isn't discovered yet is amazing and i'd love to be the one that captures it.
