so, obviously i'm new here. i'm a photo major at sam houston state university in texas and though i've taken several photo courses thus far, i still feel horribly inadequate. even if that weren't the case there's always something new to learn, right? i figure i'll make great use of the blooper forum here, so i'm excited to see that it exists. :mrgreen: i wish i had a working scanner (not to mention access to my mac instead of this PC i'm on at the moment) so i could scan in some of my better work, but alas... i don't. my website (linked in my profile) has a handful of stuff, most of it very early work that i did and some of it can't be enlarged so it's pretty blah, but if you really want to look at it, i invite you to do so. i'm hoping that by joining this forum i'll get some blatantly honest responses to the photos i produce. i feel like i don't get much of that from friends, family or classmates as they're more likely to try to spare my feelings, even if it's not necessary, than strangers. so have at it! by the way, i tend to be longwinded. i hope i don't alienate too many of you that way. :?
