Left and right brained.
Photography has always been a hobby. Ever since the first digital cameras came out in 2000/2001 it started with a pocket camera, then a point-and-shoot and finally a DSLR. Mostly sport, art, culture, and events take up most of the subject matter--rather think outside the box than be constrained to just one topic.
Back in the day, had an old Canon A-1 but not anymore. Took a long time until finally got a DSLR not so long ago. However, the one thought about taking photos is so as long as it's fun--and gotta love what you're doing.
There's better photogs (yes and I'd rather defer to them) but the great part is having an eye and making it a work of art--even if it's just one average person with a camera.
Well, enjoy my sights and scenes.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
7/2009: It was going to be about sports, but copyright issues (yes I cover the major teams albeit as a fan) have put that in the shelf. However, the next best thing is culling thousands of pictures to about a few (or a hundred) into a picture book.|
It is about culture--that's all that can be said!
My inspiration for the first book was actually based on the 1989 World Series. Hard to believe it was not so long ago. Just had the reunion for both teams.
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
|Annie Leibowitz, Peter Max, Walter Ioos I think... or I'll mention his name--John Todd--Great sports photographer. Michael Zagaris is another great photographer. I'll also throw in Liz Hafalia!|
