DOUGHBOY - NEVER LEAVE YOUR CAMERA AT HOME.. CUZ YOU WILL MISS SOMETHING THAT COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE,, YEAH IT SOUNDS KIND OF DEEP FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER BUT TRUST ME.. TAKE PICTURES OF WAT YOU LIKE AND WAT YOU WANT,, NOT WAT OTHER PEOPLE WANT.. EX: IF YOU LIKE CARS THEN PURSUE CAR PHOTOGRAPHY,, AND SHOW PEOPLE A SIDE OF A CAR THAT THEY HAVENT SEEN YET.. DO WAT YOU LIKE BECAUSE IF YOU TAKE PICTURES OF SOMETHING YOU ARENT INTERESTED IN THE PICTURE WONT COME OUT GOOD..
