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!

July’s “Time Killers From The Web”

Radnor Lake 7-17-10-11
So, I know what I’m looking at.  What are you looking at? 
Blog wise that is… 

Tennessee Photographers
Alisa Whitley Photography:  My future sister-in-law suggested I look up Alisa’s work.  From her blog - I have been interested in photography since I was eight years old. My first camera was a toy, but it used real film! I took pictures of the mailbox, the trees, and just about everything else. When I was 10, I saved up my own money and bought my very first “real” camera, a Kodak Instamatic X15. I eventually traded my Kodak Instamatic for 35mm film, then later a digital SLR. I began shooting part-time in 2000. A part time hobby has become a full time love!

Snappers Photography:  I got to shoot with Greyson a couple of weeks ago at Old Stone Fort.  While the majority of the group focused on the waterfalls, Greyson journeyed out on her own, searching for nature…and she found it!  She’s got a great eye, so check out her photo's!

Lindsey Renee Photography:  I found Lindsey on Facebook one day, and fell in ♥ with her photography!  She has an eye for catching life as it happens!

Malcom MacGregor Photography: Another local photographer I have shot with recently.  I met Malcolm on the Shelby Street Bridge a couple of weeks ago while shooting downtown Nashville.  After searching up his blog, I was amazed.  What an inspiration her is.  In fact, he’s the one that inspired me to take an early morning walk around Radnor Lake this weekend.  If you get a chance, check out his weekly series “This Week At The Lake”.

Photo Inspiration
It’s not about me: I have been a follower of Bill Fortney for over 2 years.  This man not only inspires me, but forces me to look at the bigger picture.  Not only is this man a wonderful photographer, but also a fellow Christian who gives God all the credit and takes none for himself.  When I met Bill in person, I told him I wanted to be him when I grew up!
The Creative Mama: Talk about an inspiring site.  They just got through with a 2 week series on “The Creative Photographer”.  What an undertaking.  2 weeks of interviews with some of the most talented people I have ever read about!

Mika Beth Edwards Photography: Mika’s interview on The Creative Mama was a great read.  The way she uses the camera to capture life is truly outstanding.
Photo Education
Essential Knowledge for Photographers: Jim Zuckerman offers a lot to upcoming photographers.  His blog is full of thought provoking and useful tips.  So, what are you waiting for? Check it out.

Kent Weakly Photography: Now, here is a guy who really knows what learning is all about.  In fact, this last week I used no less that 4 of his tips.  My favorite, “How to use a plastic bag from the grocery store to protect your camera”.  How’s that for education?

Ron Martinson: Ron has been around for a while, but he just recently updated his blog, and thus got a new address.  So if you have been following Ron Martinson, you might want to check out his new feed.

I ♥ Faces Blogs
Smile Like You Mean It: It’s really nice when you see someone young make a decision where they want to be in life.  Alex describes herself as a 15 year old with a point and shoot from Wal Mart.  Does that matter?  No, her photos a phenomenal.  Way to go Alex!
Pamela Topping Photography: Another one of my I ♥ Faces finds!  Pamela has just started her blog, and she is off to a good start.  Jump on over and give her a little blog love today!

Marinda Fowler Photography: Now, if you want to find a photographer in the Indiana area, I’ve got one for ya.  Marinda does it all!  She’s a mom, a photographer, and a personal friend.  That’s right, I’ve actually met and shot with someone outside of Tennessee.  In fact, I’ve even volunteered to be Marinda’s 2nd shooter any time she does one of her gorgeous boudoir sessions.  The trouble is, I don’t think my wife would agree.  Head on ever and check out Marinda’s blog, you won’t be let down!

Morgan Kervin Photography: Morgan is a find I found at the Coffee ShopMorgan has a great spirit, and is pretty good at teaching dummies like me a trick or two in Photoshop.  Lord knows I need all the help I can get!

Lightroom-news: A nice little resource for all that is Lightroom!

The Lightroom Queen: If you ever need to know anything about Lightroom, this is the woman to go to!  I had some problems a while back, and posted what was happening on several Lightroom Help forums.  The only person to help me out was Victoria.  So, the nest time your Lightroom is dark, ha ha, check out Victoria Brampton, The Lightroom Queen!

Last but not least
I ♥ Faces : Now, if you’ve been around a while, you know I LOVE I ♥ Faces!  Well, they’ve moved their feeds and such to a word press blog. At the moment, they are still feeding information to their old feeds, but we don’t know for how long.  And I could not stand the idea of not having my ladies from I ♥ Faces around, so update, will ya?

Well, that’s about for this month “Time Killers From The Web”, C Ya !
