Might not seem entirely photographically related at first glance, but I'd like to know what everyone does for a living around here, especially the more regular posters. I thought it might give some insight as to where people are coming from, both with their advice and with their photos. This is not to add more value to certain people's critiques, just because their job is photographically related, because I'm sure there are unpaid amateurs out there who have been shooting for years that are just as good or better than some paid pros. So, I just thought this might be an interesting thread topic. Feel free to talk about your current occupation, and any past experience. I'll start it off; I just graduated high school (May 20), and I'll be attending the Savannah College of Art and Design this September, planning to major in digital photography and minor in "new media art." I've been shooting photos since about 2002, when I got my first Kodak P&S, and have since upgraded several times, trying out a new band each time. Right now, I'm using my first dSLR, a Canon 350D (and loving it). I think I've had a pretty easy time getting into photography because it felt like such an extension to my drawing or painting-- composition comes first in all art, and I feel like I've had an eye for composition for a long while now. I guess if there's one thing I'd like you to know about me is that I'm an artist first and foremost, my camera and lenses are just some of my tools for one of my several outlets. You don't have to go into as much detail as I did, I just said all that because I don't really have an occupation yet. I guess I should mention I work part time in a photo studio, heading up their "artist retouching" since I've been working in Photoshop for probably seven or eight years now. So what is it you do?
