My maternal grandfather. He passed away when I was 10 but remember him to be a stong man who was a farmer in Idaho all his life. He was quite a charater and it would be a blast to be able to capture his spirit and energy photographically.
Portrait and street. I enjoy interacting with people and getting them to feel comfortable in front of the lens. Other than that anything I can point a camera at and snap off a few frames.
When I was in the Navy a friend of mine showed me his SLR. When I saw the photos he took I was amazed at what I would later learn to be depth of field. I bought my own and have been at it at it ever since.
How can I apply my vision to the subject and how it will be percieve by others.
To be able to meet like mided photographers and get the opportunity to go out on photoshoots. It's OK to be out on a shoot alone but would like to spend time with some folks that share my photo interests.
Live in Columbia MD and an amatuer photographer looking to meet others in the area to expand my craft and go on photo shoots with.
