I've always enjoyed looking at other's photographs but the challenge of actually becoming a competent one was a bit intimidating. Bought myself a Canon 40D about 2 years ago and found that I really enjoyed ALL aspects of it - technically and artistically. It's been a great learning experiece for me and looking at the photographs by the photo.net members has really helped me discover what a good photograph looks like. B&W photography seems to attract me - I find that there is much to document in the old industrial cities in the northeast - my hometown of Buffalo, NY being a prime example. I was honored to be selected as a "Merit Award" winner for the portfolio issue of B&W Magazine (issue 92). The 3 pictures that appear in the magazine were taken at locations within walking distance of my home in downtown Buffalo, proving that Buffalo is a great town to photograph. Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement!
