Thank you :)

I'm from the school of thought that there are no rules. People are very hung up on purism, but I like to throw everything at the wall and see what sticks.

Eloquently put!! I wish I was more talented in other medias, but affording a dark room is out of the budget for now lol. I've used one before, and would LOVE to have one some day, but for now I'll just be an Adobe Photoshop nerd XP. And I was blessed with the art of drawing it would help too, but I guess Ill just have to practice more on that :3hehe

I know, I'd love to build one in my house but I don't think it would help my resale value any so that is out of the question. Maybe when I'm in my "forever home" I can though, that would be rather awesome. Thankfully you can still do a few darkroom processes like pinholes without any structural changes to the building, and cyanotypes can be made in a kitchen sink if need be.

Drawing is a weird beast to tame! I do a little but it's definetly not my specialty. I have found photography to be a help though, it trains you to see, then you just need to train your hands to imitate those forms. Practice does make perfect though! The hardest thing to learn in drawing is that it's okay to erase. I use a technique called intuitive gesture, you don't look at your drawing, just the subject, and for the for 10 minutes I make very light marks. I change things constantly, reevaluating the proportions and shapes. Once you know that work can evolve, not just be static, it makes it so much easier to render objects realistically.

I might have to try it like that. I know I did a lot of excercises when I was in art class in school. But thats been soooo many years ago XD. Ill have to keep practicing and MAYBE one day I can post my drawing :P. Until then though, Ill stick with pictures. I need to post some of my photo-manips I've done on photoshop. But I want to pick out my best so Im not just posting everything I have, that would be a LOT XD lol.

Nah, this is actually a digital photograph of me with a homemade polaroid texture added in photoshop.

See, I'm not a complete film snob :la:

Thats so funny you said that, being that a lot of my friends are stuck on either digital or film, they both have their uses. As for me, I want around 10-20 different cameras to shoot with, that way I can get a different feel with each of them.
