I have mentioned the Photo Chat I have participated in the last few years on AOL. The chat has allowed me to meet in person very talended photographers, novices like me, authors and professionals who have been willing to share their photography secrets with me...making me a better photographer.
I have not had the pleasure of meeting JRyle79 but have "talked" to him in the chat, watching his photography improve and grow...John is a very talented photographer. BUT in addition to his talent, he has a wonderful sense of humor and at times will apply to his photography. Kentucky Journal and his Flickr site
My full name is John Ryle, and I'm 27. I live in Lexington, Kentucky. I've been taking pictures for three and a half years or so now. I'm self taught, and until recently been using point and shoot cameras. In April I purchased my first DSLR. Until recently, photography was something I did for myself....but I'm now starting to learn a camera can open a lot of doors, as well as make ya some money. I've been exhibited several times, and I've won a few contests.
