well I got interested in photography when I took a military broadcasters course. I wanted to be proficient in all aspects of videography, so in order to understand videography I have to understand photography. So now I am currently studying to be a full on military photographer at the Defense Information School in Maryland. My favorite themes ....I don't know what counts as a theme, but I like to shoot pictures that are pleasing to the eye and conceptual. Photography is art and should be taken accordingly whether it is photojournalistic, or creative.
