I make eye contact and listen closely. I crave quality interaction. I'm interested in just about everything, and I love to think about things intensely and thoroughly! and talk about them! (So please don't be one of those people who says, "You think a lot.") I love to laugh and once in a while I even say something kind of funny. I'm fairly comfortable with myself and can handle intense situations pretty well. I've done a few unusual things with my life, like study music in India. I like walking around in nature but I'm not hardcore. I find I'm often out of step with what everyone else is into. I don't like being categorized and I try not to categorize others too much. But I did get bored with digital photography and I'm shooting mostly film these days, which puts me in a certain hipster category, whether I like it or not.
(Just to be clear, I make photographs, not movies. Some people misinterpret "shooting film" to mean "shooting films" (note the singular and plural). But I think it's a natural misunderstanding. The word "film" means "motion picture" to most people, but to me it means thin, transparent plastic, coated on one side with a light-sensitive material such as silver halide crystals suspended in gelatin. So when I say I'm "shooting film" (singular) I mean I'm making images upon such light-sensitive material, using a film camera...... which is not a movie camera but a camera that holds film. As opposed to a digital camera. There are a few pictures of me in my photos section playing with my view camera, which exposes 4x5 inch sheets of film one at a time. That's the kind of camera where you have to put a big cloth over your head to look through the camera to make sure everything's in focus, and you have to figure out the exposure (shutter speed and all that) manually. I find it way more fun and satisfying than digital photography.)
