So what is the meaning behind your Avatar? For those noobs who don't have one yet, get one! I'll be nicer to you knowing you're an actual person and not some forum voyeur! Anyways, my Avatar represents me before a night out on the job. It's usually chilly in LA during the evenings and I always dress in layers. I always sport the beanie as well, because it makes me look more thuggish and I like to scare people who I don't want to associate with. For me it is almost a ritual getting my camera ready for night prowls...having to make sure my batteries are charged, my flash is in place, and gaffer taping any loose ends before I go out and shoot. I always lock my settings and shoot manual during the evenings. This is a moment that represents my life and my work. This is who I am. Okay, now it's your turn!
