Activity


I haven't posted much and the truth is I haven't shot that much either. The motivation to work hasn't been there. I have people telling me that I'm this great photographer and it's not that i don't appreciate the praise but I guess I'd feel more secure if it came from my peers and not from those with just a passing interest in photography.

I understand the motivation needs to come from within but still, I'd like to know someone looks at my stuff and that it moves them to comment even if it means they don't like it. Part of the reason I began posting here was to hear the views of my peers. I'm attempting to change my direction in photography and any serious critical advice would be helpful.
  • Listening to: A bunch of different stuff loaded in iTunes
  • Drinking: Diet Coke
