Getting to Know Me

Hello all!

Well I have been on this site for a week now and am amazed by the creative ‘juices’ flowing through all of the artists on here. I’m young and have a lot to learn yet and this seems to be a good place to get a start.

Now for a little about myself. I’m currently a college student majoring in English and minoring in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (aka TESOL). I really love photography, especially in black and white. I have a horribly cruddy digital camera and a really old 35mm Pentax. Working with these limits the quality of my photographs, but I’m working on saving up for a nice Nikon SLR.

If, by chance, my photos would get sold, the money (for now) would go towards a trip I am taking to New Orleans this December to help in the rebuilding efforts. The nicer parts of New Orleans may be up and running again, but the low-income areas are still in shambles it seems. Humanitarian work is my heart. After New Orleans, the money would be used for food (I’m in college, what can I say?) or put into my savings.

I gotta run to class now, but feel free to ask any questions!

Ars longa, vita brevis,
Lauren
