WC: When Happy Meets Good

If you didn't know by now, I'll let you in on a (not-so-)little secret: I'm a bit obsessed with photography.  I experience much of my life through the lens, and I remember through pictures. It's difficult for me to separate photographs of good technical quality with those that have a…

WC: The Quest for the Edge

When I was a more casual photographer, I shot whatever caught my eye.  This mostly consisted of random moments, people, cats, and daily oddities.  My pictures generally didn't look like others', mostly because I was shooting things they missed.  I found an appreciation for scenic and landscape shots, but they…
