    Why do you take photographs?

    Mostly 3 and 4. I like putting edges on the world, finding, identifying and keeping the art that just happens. I also just really like cameras-- anything that can record a jpeg is aces with me. Phone cameras, toy cameras, big honking DSLRs. It's all good. Heavy post processing and gearhead...

    Why do you take photographs?

    Yeah, because I can't draw anymore, or express myself with my paintbrush or my trowel while standing 30 to 60 feet in the air on a rickety old ladder or less stable scaffold. I come from a family of artists but I am the only photographer, out of painters(canvas)those who draw and seamstresses...

    how to get a sharp image in sports
