Thanks for taking a picture of me Jana! You are amazing!



Well, it's me of course! Hi, I'm Scott, just an ordinary guy who loves life and all the little nuances that it brings! Simply put, I'm a father to a wonderful son, a husband to a beautiful wife, and an amateur photographer who enjoys looking at the world through a piece of glass! I took up photography a couple of years ago, after having gastric bypass surgery. Since 12/07, I have lost 180 pounds, but found a real passion for documenting life with my camera. I could say that the big names out there have inspired me, and they have, But my true inspiration comes from the people I meet everyday who share the same thoughts and zeal I have for photography. We are truly blessed with some really great photographers around Nashville. So, what are you waiting for.... ...grab a camera, snap some pics, and enjoy life to the fullest!

I Heart Faces ~ Fix-It-Friday


It’s that time again post my Fix-It-Friday photo from I ♥ Faces.   This has really helped me learn more and more about editing my photos.  I love to see the other participants fixes, and to see their vision of what the photo could become.  I think one of the biggest things I’ve learned through photography is this, my vision of beautiful might not be your vision.  Guess what?  That’s OK!

David Hume 1712 ~ "Beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them."  

Today’s photo comes from Kelli Hoskins.  Check out her blog Kidnapped By Suburbia, really a nice read filled with some down to earth, easy to read tutorials!

Now I’m gonna be honest here, I changed so many things about this photo.  The trouble was, I would change it, not like it, and then go back to the beginning.  So I really could not tell you what I did to finish it!  One thing I did do was this, the entire project was done using my Wacom Intous 4 pen/tablet.  I got this new toy at Christmas, and have no idea what to do with it.  That is until I found Jessica Sprague's site.  She recently added a 4 week course that walks you through the different aspects of the pen/tablet.  In fact, this week I completely unplugged my mouse, and have used the pen exclusively!  You can check out her stuff here!
