I grew up in Northwest Arkansas, but now I live in Austin, TX. And if you look at my pictures, you can probably tell that I lived in Washington, DC for a bit.

I'm sort of trying to take that next step in photography but it's difficult getting past a lack of talent. Most of my shots are just walking around and thinking, "oh hey, that looks neat", then taking a picture of "that".

Sometimes I see a photo on flickr (or wherever) that's just got that extra something. It is expertly composed with perfect lighting and perhaps even captures a fleeting but distinct moment in time. Now and then I'll get lucky and maybe get close, but I am envious of people who just seem to make that happen.

I shoot with a Canon EOS 5D and a Canon Digital Rebel XTi (400D).

I have the following lenses:
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Tamron SP AF28-75MM F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
Canon EF 17-40 f/4L USM
Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
