I enjoy taking photos. I've been at it for a few years now and I've learned a few things that allow me to take photos that people seem to like. From what I've read, if you take photos, you need to put them on the internet. Not only that, but once you put them up on the internet, you need to write about them.
So here you have it: A web site where you can look at some of the photos I've taken AND this blog where you can listen to me talk about them, photography in general, or whatever.
As long as I'm going to do this, I might as well try to make it worthwhile. So, I've been taking photos for family and friends, now, with their support (and prodding), I'm taking photos for people I don't even know (at least at the beginning). So, I'll share what I learn as I journey into the world of "taking pictures for strangers." If you're a professional photographer, or you've been doing this since way back when, I may not have anything to offer you besides an opportunity to reminisce about when you were new like me, well, that and a smart-aleck comment here and there that might make you chuckle. If you're near where I am experience-wise, then maybe you'll want to read about what I'm learning.
Your comments and insight are welcome.
