Photography has been my passion for as long as I can remember. As early as 4th grade I remember wanting to pose subjects and craft scenes for dramatic effect.
Honestly, I have no desire to snap a pic and convey to you exactly what a scene looked like while I was standing there. Instead, I aim to convey a feeling, thought or emotion. I use post-processing techniques...a lot. So, if my images are not your cup of tea, please do us both a favor and just move on to any of the 47 million other images here on DA which will be more to your liking. Telling me you hate my work or any post-processing is just random spite. If you wouldnt say something to my face, dont let the ever decreasing anonymity of the internet lull you into becoming a jerk.
