Have you ever found yourself with your camera in a place where there is nothing interesting to photograph? The quality of light is poor or the surroundings are boring? You go home with an empty memory card and full of self doubt. Well, that happens to every photographer, but it can be easily turned into a journey of new discoveries.
Friends say that I have the ability to find something interesting to shoot everywhere I go, no matter the light or the surroundings. I am never bored when I am with my camera! I love the challenge of photographing an ordinary object and try to make it look interesting. I may be only experimenting with composition and depth of field, but isn’t it through such exercises that we learn and grow the most in our craft?

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A black college student who drew complaints for displaying a Confederate flag in his dorm room window said he sees the banner as a symbol of Southern pride and not racism.
The 19-year-old student at the University of South Carolina Beaufort took the flag down at the university’s request, but he said he’s considering putting it back up after the officials relented. Byron Thomas has drawn nearly 70,000 views since he posted a video online in which he acknowledges: “I know it’s kind of weird because I’m black.”
In a telephone interview Thursday, Thomas said a class research project made him come to the belief that the flag’s real meaning has been hijacked.
