About Rainie Mills

I am a self-taught photographer living in beautiful Naples, Florida with my husband, daughter and grand-dog. In 2014 I bought my first DSLR and started my photography journey. I had no idea it would become such an addicting hobby! I fumbled through learning what all the buttons were for, what the settings meant and what photography really was about. During my early days of learning, I found The Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge which provided me with guidance and feedback to become a better photographer. This group made me grow more than any basic reading or videos I was doing at the time because feedback is so important in learning. Today, I mainly lean towards product and fine-art photography, however, since moving to Florida I see myself moving into the wildlife realm. I love photography and creating art and look forward to creating challenges that will inspire the members of the Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge community.
