I like to take pictures. Lots of pictures! Years from now I will be able to look back at my digital library and say "This was my life!"

Now I'm not claiming to be that good at it, but it doesn't stop me from taking bunches of them. People ask me all the time what kind of camera I use. Both at home and at work I shoot with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. It's not a fancy camera, but it's sturdy and dependable. It can handle a lot of abuse and cow poop.

I don't have any fancy camera skills, I just shoot a lot of pictures. Out of several hundred shots, I usually find a few that are keepers. And lots of times even the ones that aren't perfect capture something that I want to preserve. I'm less about perfection than personality. I want to capture the personality of my subject. For instance, take Trace:

 

These pictures aren't all that great, but they make me smile because they capture the essence of who he is.

And Montoya:

Not perfect, but I liked the colors, so I'll keep it.

Now let's move on to my next secret to getting good pics.

 This is a good piece of equipment to have in your camera bag.

 Yeah, this.

A horse? 

No, not just a horse, a horse that allows you to use him as a tripod.

I wonder if I could use him at work. He could carry all my camera equipment. Do you think they make booties in his size?

If they make a camera bag for him, I'm sure they make booties as well. :-)

I LOVE that horse! She would give Montoya a run for his money in the Problem Child Dept!
