If you could photograph 1 celebrity or person , who would it be?

I honestly have no idea - my interest in portraiture is the emotion, not the person.

What type of photography do you enjoy?

Still-life macro, action (mostly sports) and the odd portrait.

what inspired you to take up photography?

I'm an enginerd. It was a nifty complicated toy with lots of buttons... tried to take pictures at a friend's wedding with a P&S, and that didn't work out... got a DSLR, took pictures at an orchid show for my aunt, and I was off to the races...

What do you think about when you pick up your camera ?

Check ISO/AF/WB/Drive... I should write it on masking tape and stick it to the back of the camera.

What do you hope to accomplish/learn from this group?

Composition, structure, and related right-brainery. Would also like to get a better understanding of (and possibly some hands-on experience with) lighting in the studio and macro contexts.


Shutter-releaser with engineering background seeks composition, structure, and related right-brainery.
