Instagram Pix Storyteller – Mindz.Eye

Every person has a story to tell of how they capture the magic they see before them with their photography. We are celebrating this with our Instagram PixStorytellers. Each week, a new photographer will join us on Instagram sharing their ideas, tips, and tricks for getting the best shot. This week we introduce you to Michael Sidofsky aka @mindz.eye on Instagram who specializes in elevated travel photography.

How did you start in photography?

Working as a graphic artist and being surrounded by creative people is what piqued my interest in photography. I picked up my first DSLR about 3 years and I haven’t looked back.

How did you find your groove?

I found my groove by getting out there and practicing. Learning the basic functions of my camera… ISO, shutter speed and aperture. There’s no substitute for hands-on experience.
