:star: for stock: please send me a link of the final work, and give me credit please in the description. thank you!

My name is Miechelle (me-shell). My Dad, has always been a Beatles fan. So my name was adjusted to sound like Paul singing 'Michelle' - Miechelle..my belle.

mishkuu has been my nickname ever since i was in 7th grade (1997) by my friends. To this day, how they came up with it remains a mystery. I'm still called it to this day by different groups of friends.

I have a BA in Cultural Anthropology and a certificate (an in-between a BA and a MA) in Asian Studies. I love learning about different cultures and meeting new people. Anything artsy is a loved hobby of mine (music, photography, drawing, digital art), and I love trying new things.

I studied abroad in 2006 in Japan through Temple University Japan - was there for 4 months. I traveled a lot while attending school for Cultural Anthropology, Asian Studies, and Japanese. I also went on vacation there in 2009 - 8 days in Tokyo, and 8 days in Okinawa. I traveled to Mexico in 2013, and was there for a week with my husband. You can find photos from my trips within the various galleries on this site.

I have always liked taking photos, but never truly thought of it as a full-time hobby. While in Japan in 2006, I first started to experiment with different angles and lighting for the first time. Even though I had a regular hand-held digital camera (Panasonic DMC-LZ7) at the time - I stretched what I could do with it, and became very pleased with the outcome. I started to enjoy taking photos as a hobby, but I still had a long way to go... Some of the older photos on here were taken with my hand-held camera! (ex: The New River Bridge photo) A few years later I received my Olympus PEN E-PL1 for Christmas as a surprise gift.

I am a self-taught photographer utilizing the skills and fundamental elements from several photography classes I have attended. I also continue to study books and online sources, and gain knowledge from the ever-so-fun experimentation of my lovely little camera.

I have significant experience with various Adobe programs including Photoshop, LightRoom, and InDesign.

The lenses I own are my 42mm, 58mm, and my newest lens being my 60mm macro lens.

You can often find me photographing animals, insects, and landscapes. In March 2014, I did my first product-commercial shoot and learned many things; very happy with the outcome. I also enjoy taking photos of individuals, couples, families, and events. Taking pictures of kids being just kids, within their own imagination - I always find fascinating.

I take a lot of pictures, but I draw some too. I also used to work with photoshop a lot making layouts for my now, deceased website (miechelle.com) - back when domains where really big. I might in the near future, start messing around with my photos in photoshop - making extreme changes, there are a few now - but I plan to make more.

Other hobbies of mine: movies, tattoos, videogames, history, comparative studies, swimming, traveling, and being random. Dinosaurs (and pre-dinosaur creatures) I find to be neato as well. DUNKLEOSTEUS FTW.
I'm also obsessed with grasshoppers, mantids, frogs, birds, and other random critters. METROID!! :iconsamusplz:
