    Way to go, T'chelle. It's wonderful that you'll be able to earn your living as a photographer.

    BTW, did you ever see the movie Secrets and Lies (one of my all time favorites)? It is about a portrait photographer, in part. But be warned, it moves slowly and the style is not American. (It's English.)

    Congrats, Toni! My first job out of high school was at a Kinderfoto studio. It was a really fun job. Best of luck with it!

    Hmm. Drama, I guess. It's a feature film by Mike Leigh about a successful young black English woman who is adopted and wants to find her birth mother... and finds out her mother, played by the great Brenda Blethyn, is white. And there are various subplots. I love the character of the photographer - he's a quiet, unremarkable man who "speaks" through his patience and goodness. I find it a very Christian film but that is not explicit. But every character is seen with deep love, as well as painful truthfulness, and you see the whole film, in a way, from the point of view of the photographer, so it is like a series of portrait shots. It's really remarkable. But one of my best friends walked out in the middle - hated it. But another, a budding filmmaker, loved it as much as I do.
