    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Once in a blue moon - that's as much as I have time for nowadays - I check up on this site, and invariably find something interesting to get sucked into..... Hopefully I'll have more time to waste at the computer later in the year. But anyway...

    Name:
    Yaron

    Meaning of handle (if it's not obvious):
    1st name + start of last name

    Dorky PR club I belong to (if any):
    Didn't know those existed - need to look into them, may join Clan O'Canon!

    Location:
    City of Waltham, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

    Born:
    Tel-Aviv, Israel

    Other places I've lived:
    NYC; Sacramento, CA; Fort Collins, CO

    Marriage/Family:
    no - but in permanent relationship

    Languages I speak:
    English, Hebrew, some French, a touch of German.
    By the way, Shrack, if you can read/write "classical" Hebrew, you can read/write modern Hebrew - same stuff.

    Education:
    Master's in engineering

    Occupation:
    Engineer

    Religious affiliation (if any): Jewish

    Political affiliation (if any): Social Democrat - one reason I left CO and moved to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Bracing myself for the snowballing disaster set off by Team Bush.

    Other hobbies: Music (is my main non-work occupation).

    How long I have been a "photographer":
    several years.

    First "real" camera:
    Does Fuji Discovery P&S count? If not, then Rebel 2000.

    Looked for info ahead of going digital.

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    Early '04

    None, hope to get in on either a Boson one or a NYC one sometime!

    Good advice, non-judgmental folks, and the occasional political tiff!

    Document memories; document what others may have overlooked, hopefully in an artisticly evocative way.

    A few of my favorite pictures:
    Gah, promise I'll update this message sometime in the coming months with some pics. Maybe I'll even broaden my scope beyond Viewfinder, and submit some pics for critique...

    How I found Photographyreview.com:

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Name:
    Andy Armstrong (Andrew C. to be exact)

    Meaning of handle (if it's not obvious):
    There's almost always too many Andy's on bulletin boards, so I almost always register as ACArmstrong for Andrew C. Armstrong. In person, no one calls me AC. I'm just Andy.

    PR club I belong to (if any):
    Clan O'Canon

    Location:
    Knoxville, TN - in the valley of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which I have yet to take a photograph in. Sad but true.

    Born:
    Knoxville, TN

    Like to Retire:
    I want a studio apartment in the French Quarter in New Orleans, LA - 15' ceilings, antique brick, and all the space I need to setup a beautiful studio. I've been to the Big Easy five times - three of which were for Mardi Gras.

    Ethnicity:
    If you look at me, I'm white, but I qualify for minority scholarships because I'm 1/8th Cherokee. Armstrong is Scottish clan. We were Reivers and border people. We did a lot of stealing from the English and fighting for either side depending on the money involved.

    Marriage/Family:
    I have a wife and a 7-year-old daughter - June 15, I'll have been married 9 years.

    Languages I speak:
    English, a little French, and Snoop Dogg - fah shizzle, mah nizzle - just kidding.

    Education:
    Was in a program called College Scholars - it allowed me to put together my own degree and defend it like a master's thesis in front of a panel of professors. I wanted to be a political cartoonist and concentrated my studies in political science, sociology, psychology, and art.

    Occupation:
    Currently I own my own web design and photography company. I also have a 4-day a week day-job as a special product designer for the largest retailer of cutlery in the country. Anything we do that is custom, usually came from my brain - I do blade etches, scrimshaw, box design, overall product design, yadda yadda yadda. In a past life I've been: a political cartoonist (5 years with two papers), a corporate trainer for a fortune 200 company, a call center manager, and an HR director.

    Religious affiliation (if any):
    Was raised Methodist - but am now agnostic bordering on atheist. I believe that there might be a creator or higher being, but I also believe that man invented religion - (all religion).

    Political affiliation (if any):
    Yellow Dog Democrat - but of late - I wish people in my party would grow some balls. If John McCain wins the nomination next time, I'll probably vote for him and scare the crap outta my parents.

    Other hobbies:
    Painting, Drawing, - hell - anything to do with art. That's my joy, and I consider photography art as well.

    How long I have been a photographer:
    2 years with a camera
    1 year with an SLR (Canon 10D)


    First "real" camera:
    Sony DSC F717

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    Don't recall - I think through Google

    Favorite forum:Viewfinder

    Favorite subjects:
    I love shooting glamour and fashion. What can I say - I love women. I love to show people what I see in them. Event photography - concerts to be specific.

    Current Gear:
    I'm a Canon man all the way.

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    Digital is instant gratification. I wouldn't be doing this if it was film.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    To develop a style -
    To quit the day job -
    To show the world what I see and how I see it

    A few of my favorite pictures:

    Go here - Web Site or here's the 20-pic portfolio I show to publications - 20 Port

    Me:

    Andy Armstrong

    I wasn't trying to change society, or to be ahead of my time.
    I didn't think of myself as liberated, and I don't believe that I did anything important.
    I was just myself. I didn't know any other way to be, or any other way to live."

    Name:
    Scott "berrywise" Haraldson

    Meaning of handle (if it's not obvious):
    When I first got online around 1994 I started out using the handle biafra (as in Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedys) but realized that the nickname lacked originality so I changed it to berrywise....which isn't any better since I created it by changing the name of the beer I was drinking at the time Leinenkugel's Berryweis. Good beer to introduce you to beer since its like drinking pop but I doubt I could stomache more than one of them these days.

    I enjoy the state I live in but who knows what the future holds. Warm temps might be nice when my bones start getting brittle.

    Ethnicity:
    White like a saltine cracker

    Marriage/Family:
    single but in a serious relationship

    Languages I speak:
    English

    How long I have been a photographer:
    Serious interest: 8 years.

    First "real" camera:
    Canon AE1

    First "fake" camera:
    A chunk of 1x8 wood painted black by my dad with a small piece of round wood as the lens and a painted on Konica in the corner.

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    Long time member of mtbr.com

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    When it started.

    Favorite forum:
    Viewfinder - that's what it is all about for me.

    Photogatherings I have attended:
    None yet!

    Favorite subjects:
    Sports and People

    Current Gear:
    Canon 20D w/vertical grip
    70-200 f2.8
    17-40 f2.8
    550 ex flash

    Nikon D1h

    24mm 2.8

    Canon Elph

    Camera I use the most:
    20D

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    I have grown up using a computer so I was immediately drawn to digital images when I could first get my hands on them. From having to use a floppy disc to capture to all the way to the 1 gig flash cards I now use.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    It definately is based around the members. The sense of community that can be had from an online forum. I don't get to hang out as much as I used to so I guess I can't say I have attached myself to this forum as much as some others in the past but I still enjoy reading and viewing others photographs as well as displaying my own from time to time. There is also a wonderful amount of technical advice to be had from many members.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    I like to save memories with photography. I always enjoy putting together galleries of parties that my friends have. I someday hope to make it a full time job. Just haven't figured out what route I want to go with that.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Gosh, you people have so many awesome photographs. I hope someday I can do just a fraction of that.

    Marriage/Family:
    Not yet, someday

    Languages I speak:

    Occupation:
    Student/Hotel agent

    Religious affiliation (if any): Christian...I am a PK.

    Other hobbies:Computer games, athletics - nhl fan, deimminh, mountain biking, novels, audiophile.

    How long I have been a photographer:
    I have had my camera for 2 years almost. I am still very much an amatuer tho.

    First "real" camera:
    Nikon N80

    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    From the mountain bike site

    Date I joined PR (sometimes people's listed join date is innacurate):
    I dont recall, about 2 years ago or so.

    Favorite forum:
    Viewfinder

    Nikon N80

    Nikkor 50mm 1.8D

    Sigma 28-105

    Why I prefer film or digital:
    I would really like to get a D70 but I just dont have the cash to do so. I find film frustrating to learn with because of the time from taking the icture to seeing how it turned out is long, for me at least.

    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    I like that I can come here, and get helpful information, and not get "bashed" because I am not as good as the rest. Plus you guys post some amazing pictures that I like seeing.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    I would love to get into sport photography, possibly as a photo journalist per say. Just not sure how to go about doing that. Being paid to go photograph hockey games and such just sounds great to me.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Hmmmm, judging from the posts so far, me thinks I fall far short of the greatness residing at this site. But, being one not to be too bashfull, I shall dive in with a cannonball.


    Name: Sylvester Robbins

    The Handle: Guess this is another one of those obvious ones. I finally decided on this one after being frustrated with all the mean people that took the ones I wanted use. ;)


    Location: Nice little town of Mt. Sterling, Kentucky

    Born: I was born in Somerset, Ky

    Other places I have lived: Other than two years in Germany while in the Army, I have lived all my life in Kentucky. Louisville, Shepherdsville, and Somerset.


    Like to retire: Hopefully I have a few years before that happens. When I do, probably somehwere out west.


    Ethnicity: A true heinz 57 mongrel. English, Dutch, Irish, German, Wales, with some Cherokee and Shawnee thrown in for good measure.


    Marriage/Family:
    Depends on how you look at it and no. Have been with my partner/spouse (depending on how you want to look at it) for 10 years now.


    Languages I speak:
    Well, it would have to be a cross between slightly educated redneck and very little Spanish and German.


    Education:
    My weakness compared to others. Let's just say that I have enough knowledge to understand Ag, Theology, and Recreation without having a degree. I finally did go back to school a few years ago and now have AS in Computer Aided Architectural Drafting and Design.


    Occupation:
    I am currently a drafter for a company that manufactures steel truss buildings.


    Religious affiliation:
    Strictly non-denominational. Was raised Baptist, but finally got tired of all the hub-bub about who was right and who was wrong and I was a bad person for being who I am.


    Political affiliation:
    Hmmm... have been both Democrat and Republican, but do not consider myself either at this point in time. I think both of them need a major overhauling.


    Other hobbies:
    When I have the time for them; reading, crafts, bowling, hiking and the one that takes most of the time other than photography is working on our old house.


    How long have I been a photographer:
    Not sure I consider myself quite there, yet. First started taking pics with my mom's old reflex kodak, then went to 125 Instamatics and 110's. So I guess off and on for about 30 years.

    First "real" camera:
    As some of the others so far, the old Pentax K1000


    How I found Photographyreview.com:
    doing a search for photography message boards


    Date I joined PR:
    just this month


    Favorite forum:
    Not had a chance to look through many, but so far it would be Viewfinder


    Photogatherings I have attended:
    none


    Favorite subjects:
    Outdoor/nature, scenics and landscapes, Macro and close-up


    Current gear:
    Canon EOS Rebel

    35-80mm
    80-200mm


    Why I prefer film or digital:
    Right now I shoot film. Have had the opportunity to borrow a digital camera and realize the ease and amount of pics I can shoot with one. Right now, I am satisfied with the film and figure the cost of film and developing will help me be very selective in what I shoot and try to make sure I get it right the first time. I still use editing software to work on my images as I get all of mine on CD's when developed.


    What I like about Photographyreview.com:
    So far the people and the knowledge they have which I might be lucky to have trickle down to me.

    What I am trying to accomplish with my photography:
    When I show my pics to others and see the reactions they have, that is IT for me. My main focus is to take pictures that will move others; hopefully in the same I was moved when I took the pics.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Thanks, neighbor. I was glad to see a few on here from Ky. I think getting a Ky gathering together would be fun. Hopefully there are a few more of us on here. I was up there about the first of this year getting some shots of the covered bridges. Think I may go again only do them in B&W. So far this seems to be a very nice board.

    And it's not too bad of a road trip from where I'm at too... Can't make any promises but I'm always up for that given the time to do it! I've driven thru Kentucky a few times and there's a lot to photograph!

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    Your right KY has a lot to offer. We could do something in the horse country around Lexington and the Bluegrass region of the state. Or at one of the may great state parks. And for the city folks there is always Louisville with the river and some nice buildings. I think we have some great opportunities for photographers here.

    Re: Photographyreview: The People

    You are right about that, old timer. There all kinds of opportunities across the whole state. I am working on a project now of doing B&W's of some of the local Historical Sites in the hopes of taking the prints to the Historical Society and see if they would be interested in using them for a calendar.
