Self-Portrait with Skull Tsuka Katana
This, like my pic from Sunday, is me screwing around and being childish and narcissistic. I had fun, though. :)

EDIT: Thanks to several people who have asked for my advice, I have started another blog, An Open-Ended Course in Photography. It's a site where you can learn to take better pictures. I hope it proves helpful for aspiring photographers.

nice photos. Were battling on be. Any advise for someone just getting into photography. Have the new camera. Books, classes or just get out there and have it?

Rehab: glad you like it!

Houthouse: Wow, that's a really big question. I think it's going to take some time to answer it. The short answer is, yes! Do all of those! Make sure to look through my archives (or any of the archives of the photobloggers on my links page) and ask yourself why you like a particular picture, and what would make it better. And never, ever, stop shooting. The more you do it, the better you'll get (as long as you're dedicated to learning from your mistakes and successes).

And taking a class could never hurt.

I googled "photography assignments" in an attempt to find a list of assignments for you to give yourself, but I didn't like any of the lists that came up. Some were too advanced, and others weren't going to be helpful. So watch this site. Next week I'll come up with a list of what I would assign if I was a photography instructor.

On second thought, maybe I'll start a new blog and begin putting that together right now.
