About comments: If I leave a comment, it's because I love your shot/work. Not because I expect a comment back. Also, I tend to leave notes as to why I like your work. I think this is important for the 500px community to do. You don't have to type out "I like this" when there's a button for that. The comment field is for criticism, impressions and thoughts. Good or bad!

My style (if you could call it a style, lol): I shoot what I see when I'm out walking around town. I don't do photo projects or assignments. It's all spur of the moment and as such, a lot of my photos are of buildings, street, and urban nature. And they're far from perfect. If there's people in my photos, it's not people I know and they're not staged.

Gear: I stick to one setup: A Sony A55 and a Sigma 18-50mm lens, which I've had for about two years now. I wouldn't mind getting a 35mm prime but I haven't found the motivation to make the jump yet. I do plan on adding a Sony Flash soon as people are asking me to get into some portraiture, though I'm even unsure about this. Maybe it'll help with my street work when there's low light...

Other thoughts: I said this before but I would really love constructive criticism, tips, advice, anything. I'm learning through experience but it costs a lot. Wisdom is graciously accepted!

Well, thanks for checking me out!
