I wanted to be a glamour photographer so I took a course at the local community college, but the class assignments were so irrelevant. I mean, we were instructed to take black and white photos of stop signs and cracks in the sidewalk. Where are the models? I didn’t last the semester. Of course, the instruction was designed to teach us about lighting and composition which all seemed instinctive to me. Photography became a hobby rather than a profession. I discovered that with a little bit of skill, and a decent camera, anyone can take a good picture though a photogenic subject can often make the difference.
