"You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”- Ansel Adams~ ~ ~Always an interesting (indeed, a provocative) question. Whenever it’s asked - and it’s never asked of paint-slingers - there’s contention. Pushback. Though, lately I’ve been pondering the “rules" - or lack thereof - for creative fire.

I have been shooting photographs for over twenty years. For most of that time I was a film photographer developing my own photos using a darkroom. The cost to produce images worth selling is astronomical and creating a high quality image worth selling is extremely time consuming. Therefore, I never was able to sell images.
