    I consider myself an amateur and a novice at best. I always critique myself way too hard and think my pics don't hold a candlelight to most of OTAP, much less people on other forums... well, maybe better than slimeball, but that's it. :mamoru:

    I'm my own worst critic. I need pushing to take it to the next level because I never think I'll make it.

    i dont label myself, thats silly.
    anyway my strengths are in natural lighting, somewhat good at street photography.
    id like to improve upon the perspectives. like that one guy that had his camera on a pole to take those real estate photos posted here. thats just genius. to me a perfect perspective is much more important than perfect lighting, and harder to come by.

    I know how to do every shot I want until I get out there and then suddenly I'm a noob and realize I left my brain at home.

    but I'm still better than slimeball.

    The fact that I haven't posted a single shot I've taken should say it.

    (well, I haven't shot anything interesting yet.. just been messing around to get used to exposure/aperture etc)
