Hometown: I was born in a small town...

Share creative ideas, learn a more about conception and execution of studio work. Get into parts of Seattle I may not otherwise know about or go to. I have a pretty through working background in photographic technique too, and hope to share that with others.

Just about anything. I'm interested in doing more formal portraiture and studio work. Historically, I wanted to be a photojournalist, and worked in a commercial studio doing high school senior portraits. So I've had my feet in a couple of ponds, and maintain interests in both. Mostly I think I enjoy the documentation side of photography and creating an image that preserves or conveys the feeling of a moment in time. How that integrates into subject material, I don't know. Lately I have had a penchant for the zoo though, and enjoy waiting for and getting a good moment from the animals.
I really like the social networking aspect of it. I dislike the lack of really good copyright protections, though I don't think I have anything to worry about that myself - yet. ;-)
Digital these days. I'm in the process of selling my film gear... kinda sad, but that's the way it is.
I started processing my own B&W in the eighth grade and have been hooked ever since. I've not had as much time for it in the last several years. It's due time to get back into it though.
A great way to share creative energy with a diverse and fun group! Get new ideas, meet new people, get out of your shell and have fun!
