Donald Leon Farrow - Digital photographer?  My advise is to buy an old manually operated film SLR and learn how use it.  With this understand the mechanics of photography.

Donald Leon Farrow - I suggest some shots along the Blue Ridge Parkway.   The word "majestic" comes to mind.

Donald Leon Farrow - Find an old brick building, zoom toward transitional elements of the building - then perfect art.  Composition and lighting is key.

Donald Leon Farrow -  If photographing a group, keep it casual and dont command central attention.  Let them talk while you go from one end to the other arranging.  While they are still chatting and almost organized, squeeze off a few shots.

Donald Leon Farrow – Cloudy and rainy days are excellent for photography, light is diffused and more uniform, very moody.
