    Welcome to a squid from a baby bok choy. We've got turnips here too, I hear. And lots of wall flowers.

    Regards, Art.

    Hi Alden, wasn't Brooks great? For an even better one try on Art Center. There they take a sword and cut you off like a bamboo shoot if you go against the grain. I got enough of that in the service. I lived in Wyoming for two years as a kid, 12, and learned a lot there, land, farming, snakes, square dancing in the schools, it was really quite fun, cowboy duds with snap buttons, big belts and boots. No TV or radio, just a windup record player and the old disks. 48's, 68's, I forget now.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi.

    [QUOTE=Curt;567327]Hi Alden, wasn't Brooks great? For an even better one try on Art Center.

    Almost went to Art Center. I used to think that Brooks should be brought up on charges. I could teach in 2 1/2 months what they stretch out to 2 1/2 years, but ultimately you have to take responsibility for your own education. I advise against paying a photo school, especially if you're going to miss out on a real college education, and you don't even get up to date business practices. Successful people in any field are self motivated and aggressive learners. I vote that a photographer can be self educated and florish, yet look what the art world has done to aspirants. They're now expected to have masters degrees. This so they can swallow whole the postmodern dogmas of the gallery system. But no sour grapes here. Innovators always set their own pace.

    Don't feel bad, I've got almost 5 more teenage years on me then you and I'm still farting around with trying to put together a portfolio. My money days have come and gone and if it wasn't for the fact I'm handy and can repair things (thank you GOD) I'd be starving. I think what people like you and me need to do is quit shooting general bullshit landscapes and choose a subject, any subject and shoot it to exclusion for a year. This thread on personal projects might get your motor running: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum50/4...-projects.html

    Nice to meet you btw.

    18 'till I die... Glad to see there are a few more 50+ year old teenagers here besides me. Thomas -I'm on my third career and it's the best one so far (they've all been great).

    Welcome Alden! Your avatar looks a bit on the young side to me. (I'm 73 and still a pupil).
