Set Pieces
Although Seffner doesn’t offer formal photography classes, Steven, who is a senior at the school, added to his self-taught skills by joining the school’s photo club, which his father, Joe, instructs. “But what got me started in photography,” Steven says, “was the photography merit badge in Boy Scouts, which my dad also teaches.”

Steven’s been on the school’s yearbook staff for two years as a photographer and editor, and he’s won several first prizes in the Florida State Fair youth photography competition.

The documentary style and strong compositions that mark his black-and-white, toned, and muted-color photos attracted our attention. Steven says he’s definitely drawn to the carefully arranged, carefully thought-out image. “When I was first getting into photography…I saw the work of Ansel Adams, and he did a very good job of making sure that everything in his pictures was exactly the way he wanted it. I always thought that’s the kind of thing I want to try to imitate.

“I don’t set my camera for black and white,” Steven adds. “I usually take the picture thinking that it might look neat in black and white or toned or desaturated, but I shoot it in color in case it doesn’t look as cool as I thought it would.”

As individuals, people are

As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups. And I remain extremely concerned when I see what's happening in our country, which is in many ways the luckiest place in the world. We don't seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids.

Great interview with Mike! I

Great interview with Mike! I noticed the conservative support shifts periodically. But this shift that the article is talking about, is out of the ordinary. Bush bases his electoral campaign on security issues, whilst this shouldn't be the main concern. There are far more deficient sectors that the US needs to take care of. You must search in all treatment centers.

Now this is a wonderful news

Now this is a wonderful news that i wish to hear more often. It is great that the true values of our city are honored and it is great that they started to decorate the Herndon firefighters. My brother is a fire fighter and he once drove some firemen to a mission because their car broke.
