"I don’t think about what camera I should use that much. I just pick up the one that looks nicest on the day"
— William Eggleston

“The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.”
—Henri Cartier-Bresson

"And if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it's as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible."
—Richard Avedon

"Being a good photographer is one element in producing good photographs. You have to be a super salesman, be discreet and be a logistician. And most photographers have a bit of swagger in their step. To make it work, you have to be a complete person."
—David Hume Kennerly

I don’t think the Lieutenant of Los Angeles Sheriff was intentionally posing like this for photographs. But it worked out for me.

I probably photographed all these shots “Wrong” for the JACC “Feature Story” competition during the conference, but I am happy with them. I know I have something different than everyone else, and I have something better than a piece of paper saying I won, I have a…

Journalism Association of Community College this WEEKEND!

This weekend I will be attending the Journalism Association of Community College 2014 conference in Burbank, CA. I am very excited for this opportunity, and excited about the trip.

Networking, competitions, awards.
Journalism really is something I have became very passionate about, and I wish I wrote here on my blog more often, but I don’t.

I’m debating what to wear, and what to bring.
Only the…

Made this silver “Photographer” ring for myself. It isn’t perfect, but I made it by hand. I had a joke I made with a classmate when he was in shock how well our rings looked. I added, It’s like we bought them from a jewelry store.

I might take up career in jewelry if Photography doesn’t go well for me

Pretty excited how this ring that I made came out.
It says Photographer, with my initials inside.

I really want to make one stamped “Leica M2 xxxx) with the Xs representing the serial number. Just the only good stamps available were letters, no numbers. I’ll have to find some good number stamps for stamping silver.

I am so glad Diablo Valley College offers a jewelry and metal smithing class. I…
