Member Monday Featuring Dandan Liu

Describe your creative style in 3 words

I am not sure, I haven’t thought about it… maybe: simple, elegant, meaningful

Tell us about a time you struggled or failed with your photography, and how you overcame it?

I often don’t know what to shoot, and trouble finding an interesting project to work on. I don’t think I have ever overcome that. 

What sparked your love of photography?

I started photography because I wanted to be able to take good photos while I was traveling. Once I get into it, it just changed the way I see the world. 

What’s your favorite class on KelbyOne and why?

There are so many, if I have time, I could sit and watch the class one after the other for hours.
