You Know You're Passionate For Landscape Photography When...

posted on 3rd of january, 2010

1. You chase storms and clouds hoping to catch a dramatic scene

2. You get up at 3:30 AM to be at a location before the sun rises

3. You keep going back to the same spot multiple times in order to capture a scene under the right conditions

4. You think studio photographers have it easy because they can adjust subjects and lighting

5. You know what the "Rule of Thirds" are

6. You know the "Rule of Thirds" should not always be followed

7. The terms "Magic Hour" or "Golden Hour" are understood by you

8. You will stand and wait for clouds to pass by and let the sun out

9. You see charm and character in old structures that others call fire hazards

10. You enjoyed being outside even if you didn't get any good pictures

YUP!!! And my love for old structures has had me taking photos of them for many years. The sad thing is, I didn't have the greatest camera then and now so many of the things are gone. Well, I still have the snaps in 2 and 5mp, guess I can get an artist to draw them for me if I want.

About me

My greatest passion is landscape and fine art photography. However, stock does provide a challenge in itself. I enjoy coming up with new ideas and concepts and learning new techniques.

I have over 30 years experience with different kinds of art and freelance endeavors and have yet to become tired or bored with finding new ways to exercise the creative side of me.
