If you want to check out my personal photography, here's the link to my photo tumblr! (jfoxphoto.tumblr.com)
I suppose the fact that I tend to smile a lot in conversations? Don't let my photos fool you, if I'm talking to you 9 time out of 10 I'll be smiling. I'm just really awful at taking selfies, I always make the same face.
I'm actually not sure what folks notice about me, other than I tend to be pretty approachable in real life.
Canon over Nikon, my dudes.
Books: The Martian, Kingkiller Chronicles, Aubrey-Maturin books (Master & Commander series), Jurassic Park, The Historian, Dresden Files, Terry Pratchet/Discworld, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Some comics and manga (My Hero Academia is SO GOOD.)
Movies: Star Wars, Mad Max: Fury Road, Pacific Rim, Wreck-It Ralph, Kingsman, The Book of Life, Ghostbusters, Little Nemo in Slumberland, MCU, Moon, Tron/Legacy, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Snowpiercer.
TV Shows: Anything narrated by David Attenborough. The man is a gem. National Geographic documentaries. Stranger Things. Over The Garden Wall. Steven Universe. Some anime. Not a huge TV watcher, to be honest, I prefer to read.
Video Games: Splatoon, Smash Bros, Ace Attorney, The Last of Us, Mirror's Edge, Borderlands, Fallout, Dark Souls, Pokemon. The Kingdom Hearts series has a special place in my heart. Overwatch is my current gaming thing, it's a lot of fun!
Music: So many bands. Radiohead, The Fratellis, Gorillaz, Kate Bush, The Chemical Brothers, Tycho, Modest Mouse, Goo Goo Dolls, The Aquabats!, Queen, David Bowie, The Protomen, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Seals & Croft, Goldfish, Justice, Mystery Skulls, Studio Killers, Hamilton, and FEMM. I really enjoy synthwave/chillwave styles of music but have absolutely no idea of any band names, so any recommendations are welcome.
Food: Mozzarella sticks are one of my favorite foods ever. Stir-fry and curry are up there too, as well as any meaty/seafood dishes. Fried dumplings are yum. Indian food is amazing, as is Thai. Apple cider is one of my favorite seasonal drinks, especially when heated with a cinnamon stick and with a bit of Amaretto thrown in.
Any and all of my current cameras.
Apple cider in fall.
Blasting songs in the car so I can sing along without being judged.
The smell of woodsmoke.
Where to focus on finding a decent photo job and what part of the country I want to try and move to. See also: fretting about finding apartments and the future in general.
What kind of a relationship I'm actually looking for right now. I'm not sure if I want to be FwB with someone (with an emphasis on the Friends part), or if I just want a casual/open relationship, or if I actually am ready for a fully committed long-term relationship. Mostly I just want something that'll give me some form of (semi) regular intimacy, cause I've been lacking it for a good while.
How absolutely, numbingly terrified I am for the future of the country and the world because of what's happening to America right now.
I'm loathe to admit it but I'm kind of a giant hipster when it comes to cameras. I just really really love anything to do with film. (I have about 8 different cameras besides my main digital and they're all film someone please stop me.)
I have never watched Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, or Donnie Darko and honestly have no real interest in doing so.
You appreciate bad puns. Or good puns. Or any kind of pun.
You're an intersectional feminist.
You love photography of any kind, and want to chat about your current photo projects, different cameras, or just anything dealing with photography in general.
You like games, comic books, or sci-fi movies. Going off of that, if you'd like to play Smash or Animal Crossing on 3DS, or Splatoon on the Wii U.
Alternatively, if you'd like to play some Overwatch! I have it on PC, just ask for my Battle.net ID.
You'd like to go on a walk in the city or in a park and snap some photos.
The idea of a night in watching a movie under some blankets on the couch is appealing to you. (This might not count for horror movies - I'm a huge wimp. Only for when you enjoy laughing at me being ridiculous.)
Not a huge fan of drugs.
I'm extremely bad at sending first messages; I get nervous with cold approaches even on the web and I tend to have a hard time approaching someone with a purely romantic mindset. Chances are if you see me pop up in your visitors multiple times, I think you're neat but I'm too nervous to say hello!
