When we were five years old, we liked to draw, create and just explore. The hours we spent putting crayons (or permanent markers) to paper, or the table and walls or wherever the color would stick and before our parents would notice were endless. We were all artists. It seems, beaten by time and life, for many adults, we have become busy with life and leave the art to the "artists."
What looks so natural to an artist, musician or photographer may have taken them a whole lifetime to develop. But we were all born artists. Some kept going, some didn't. However, it is never too late to start back up. Pick up your phone and snap photos of everything, take a pen and draw stick figures or just sing like that five year old you again--in tune or not. You do not have to show it to the world, but at least keep it for yourself.
View my work to the right. It has taken me years to get to this point, but I am nowhere where I want my work to be.
Please enjoy and if you need any tips or help with photography, call me or email me. I am always learning but I'd be glad to help you with what I already know.


About Clothes and DaggerLyndon Angelo

When I was a boy, my urban Los Angeles middle school had a perfume company come in to the school with a contest. They handed out disposable cameras to my schoolmates and me and asked us to take 24 frames capturing abstract ideas like "family" and "joy". The winner would get a college scholarship and some other prizes I knew I would win. Having never used a camera in my life, it didn't matter, that prize was mine. A picture of my dog's foot, click. A picture of the back of my brother's shoulder, click. And 22 other frames just like it all done with in 15 minutes of my first shot. I brought the camera with film back to school and waited for them to tell me what I already knew--I won. Needless to say, I didn't. Or maybe the company just took my winning photos and didn't give me my prize, but regardless, by what I know now; those photos weren't very good. I can't even say that contest sparked my love for photography but what it did was make me realize that what I envision in my head doesn't happen easily in the camera. I needed to understand many things that I didn't realize then: light, lenses, composition but most importantly--humanity. It wasn't until college when I picked up another camera this time in photography 101. What settings do I use? How do I light it? Even these technical things that mattered much in college matters much less now. But it was critical in my learning. What's most important in making a picture: who is this person? Why did s/he build this car? What is the story?
