In college, I took an introductory course in photography. I was involved in every aspect of the creation of these photos. Not only did I snap the picture, but I developed the film, decided which negatives to use, and printed the final product. It was fun, but expensive: the equipment and chemicals for developing film and prints were provided for us, but film and paper was not. I would like to have followed through with it, but my camera broke halfway through the semester and I had to rely on borrowing one from the Photography department.

I quickly settled upon subject matter very different from most of my paintings. Instead of photographing people, I chose to photograph things like trees, rocks, and graves. I guess it was adolescent angst or something, but many of my best photos were taken in a graveyard near the school. During the day, it was very quiet and peaceful there, though I'd been warned not to go there at night - that's when the weirdos come out. Granted, taking photographs of headstones and monuments would probably qualify me as a weirdo, day or night, but that's the way it goes...
