That's a tough one, perhaps Jennifer Aniston.
Landscape, or even abstract (like close ups of an unusual form).
A teacher at Maryland Institute showed our beginning painting class a photograph unretouched, and asked us to indentify it. No one could, it was a closeup of the surface an industrial machine which had been in the woods for a long time, it was a black and white photo. I was inspired to study photography seriously. I had previously developed and interest when camping with my parents, who were artists, and they were always painting scenes. When I got old enough I was curious and started trying my hand at painting scenery in watercolor like my father and liked it. At about the same time my father got a camera and I was fascinated with that too. "Stop using up all the film George, it costs money!" he said after I used up like a whole roll of film on a sunset in the Southwest that kept changing.
Finding a good angle.
Meet some kindred spirits. Learn how to photograph people.
My name is George Edwards. I am an artist/photographer, I graduated from MICA, majoring in mixed media, studying both photography and painting. I have done mostly scenic photography but would like to learn more about photographing people.
Wonderful. As a photographer it is just what I have been looking for. I am also an avid guitar player, especially electric, and I had been trying Baltimore Guitarist Group meetups, which were a dismal failure. You had to wait an hour to play, everybody sang a few songs with an acoustic guitar. I wanted to improvise a lead and jam, it was billed as a jam session. The photo meetups to me are a big success. I can really get involved. Have learned a lot, got a bunch of good photos to work with and add to my fledgling portrait photography portfolio, and started to meet some people I have something in common with. I have been taking photographs now for many years, and I figured it was about time to try and do something with it.
