My first black eye was one I gave myself by swinging a camera around. Since, I've gotten a lot better at controlling the camera and capturing compelling images that hold true to my subjects' emotions.
My vision is in permanent "view-finder" mode- when I look at something, I look at how best to frame an image within my view-finder. And, in a Photoshop-heavy world, my goal with every shot is to capture the image as I want it to be seen by my viewer. I only use Photoshop to touchup blemishes and enhance my subjects eyes (the window to the soul). I use both digital and film formats.
