Looking Glass
At the time we spoke, Brett was a few weeks away from graduating with an associate's degree, and he planned to look for an assisting job in a commercial studio, perhaps in Dallas, Ft. Worth, or Austin. He also has a degree in business management, a field that didn't appeal to him as much as he thought it would--and certainly not as much as photography.

Although he's quite familiar with Photoshop and digital cameras (he shoots with a Canon D30), the glassware images you see here feature very little manipulation. The look was achieved with lighting and camera placement. "I don't have as much access to a darkroom as I have to a computer," Brett says, "and I like to have the control over an image that the computer gives me."

She plans to continue studying photography and hopes to someday market her images for calendars and magazine illustrations. "Right now I'm using nursing to get to the places where the pictures are. One of the main reasons I stay in nursing is because it allows me to travel and do my photography."
