    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Are you ready for this?

    Name:
    Drew E. O'Kane

    My handle and its meaning:
    I actually just like the name. Its distinctive, and not easily forgotten. I know, I know, cruel Ukranian secret police commander, but in some ways we are alike and different in many ways. I told you this would be interesting. Dzerzhinski also saved the camera industry in the USSR, and the FED (Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinski) camera owes its existance to to him, so he isn't totally unrealted, but that isn't why I use the name.

    Dorky PR club I belong to:
    Clan O'Canon
    Lost Planet Cameraman #8

    Current Location:
    Colorado Springs, CO
    soon to be in a few months:
    El Cerrito, CA (and none too soon)

    Born:
    Berkeley, CA (has to be the most fantastic place on earth)

    Other places I have lived:
    Boston MA, Colorado Springs CO, El Cerrito CA

    Ancestry:
    French, German, Swiss/Austrian Jew, Irish, Scottish, your basic European mongrel

    Marriage:
    nope

    Languages:
    English, some German, and Calculus

    Education:
    Freshman in college, and hope I keep on learning

    Occupation:
    Student and family member

    Religious affiliation:
    Presbyterian with some orthodox leanings. I guess you could say the spirit of the early church. I hope that my zeal for serving the Lord matches Dzerzhinski's fierce zeal for protecting Mother Russia, hence the connection. I told you it would be interesting.

    Political affiliation:
    Independant is the best I can put it. I vote how the Bible tells me.

    Other hobbies:
    Higher math, cooking, astronomy, music, reading, writing, philosophizing, thinking

    How long I have been a photographer:
    Less than a year, but the learning curve is steep

    First "real" camera:
    Seagull 4A-107

    How I found PR.com:
    Looking for reviews of cheap cameras, and I never looked back

    When I joined PR.com:
    October 2004

    Favorite Forum:
    Photo Critique

    Favorite Subjects:
    Inanimate objects, and anything that catches my attention

    Gear:
    Canon TLb, Seagull 4A-107, Canon A80

    Why I prefer digital or film:
    Film has a look and character that is superior in my opinion to digital, but digital is convenient

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    Have an outlet for my creative side (though Calculus does this sometimes ), and bring glory to God

    A self portrait and some favorites:

    Nat, not everyone uses that display mode. I find it easier (old fogey that I am) to use the linear display mode and cryptic comments without quotes are often confusing (although now that I think if it, that's getting to be a normal state of affairs. )

I still remember the image in my mind of my son flying from my arms and making an arc through the air, before landing softly on his back a few feet away in what seemed like the hands of an angel.

    You've never heard a woman scream the way I did. But he was fine, still is ... he's smart, active, generous and good ... but he has this strange love of roller coasters and snowboarding, do ya think it's related??

    I spent a lot of my childhood in hospital getting stitched up, and i think it all started with a pram accident when i was two!!! I then had more than twenty stitches in my forehead from numerous encounters with sharp corners by the time i was four, and this didn't stop till i was sixteen, i'm amazed my mother never had a heart attack. All this to say that you bounce at any age, just not as high and with more damage but it's always fun!!!
