I'm joining because I fell that Photo Mayhem has the potential to be much better than other photography communities. I really like the ideas of assignments, directed discussion, and all the members of a community helping each other develop as artists. I also like that you don't have to qualify by someone's arbitrary standards just to get in to this community. I also want to be a part of Photo Mayhem because I have a lethally boring job which affords me much time to devote to this and similar communities.

I currently reside in Pittsburgh, PA. I'm a college student so I do some bouncing around between here and my parents' home in Alexandria, VA.

I'm a Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Pittsburgh. Every other semester, I work at my afforementioned job. I think those are the answers people expect when they ask what I do, but I think that's pretty boring, so here's some more: I grow about 10 different types of plants in an indoor garden in my apartment. I take pictures whenever I have the time, the inspiration, and the equipment. I read everything I can get my hands on. I like to sing along in the car. I take care of my new kitten, Kiko. I play frisbee, and I run.

I heard about this community in another photo community.
