To meet others that share my passion and to learn from each other!
Truc Allen Media - http://www.flickr.com/photos/trucvzero/ My early days of photography predated the dslr, which meant it was difficult for me to spend the time and money to process film. Therefore, between high school year book and starting a publication a couple years, I invested my time to rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, playing music, motorsports and traveling. Last year I got my first DSLR and it has been a total obsession ever since.
Everything. It is truly difficult to pin it down because the ability to constantly redefine yourself and learning how to shoot just about anything is one of the hearts of photography for me.
The accessibility to showcase your work and to be inspired by others. I hate that I can't devote enough time on Flickr to truly get involved. It can be frustrating to get beyond "favorites" and compliments and into constructive feedback.
I love photography and other media forms. From focus to process, photography is as satisfying as an ice cold [insert favorite beverage] in the middle of the desert. It hits the spot!
