My name is Jonathan A. MacHale, and I’ve been doing photography since I was 16. It all started when my mother invested in a Nikon D5500, a simple, starter DSLR camera. I would borrow it from time to time and on one occasion, we went down to Marshall’s Falls in Marshalls Creek, PA to attempt to shoot my first waterfall. I already had the image in my head before I even left the house. We walked down there and I set up my tripod at the edge of the cliff, everything was going exactly how I imagined it. I set the ISO as low as it could go, the aperture way up high since it was a bright and sunny day, and the shutter speed to around 2-3 seconds. I released the shutter and then the image came up. It was at this moment I realized that photography was going to be my new hobby.
