I am self taught for the most part when it comes to photography and Photoshop. I don't claim to know all of the rules, let alone follow them. My personal opinion is that no matter how technically perfect a photograph is, if it lacks a soul, it is not a photograph. It is far better to be passionate than to be technically perfect.
Photography and Photoshop consume just about every moment of my spare time. I love my art and generally cannot get enough of it. I also realize that there is always something new to learn and that the sky is the limit. Some of my inspirations include Manny Librodo, Bread and Shutter, Miss Aniela, and Brooke Shaden.
