Your smile makes me smile.

One of the reasons I take so many photos of people is because I'm constantly pursuing the highest compliment an amateur photographer can receive: a Facebook profile picture.

I love surfing through Facebook and counting how many students are using my photography to represent themselves to the digital world.

It's a feeling of happiness. You know you've taken a great shot of someone when they remove their old profile picture and replace it with your work.

For example, after I snapped shots of Lee's opera production of "Patience" and uploaded the final images, no fewer than nine actors in the cast changed their profile shots. To get an all-encompassing overview of how it looks, click and explore the image.

So, if I happen to be surfing Facebook and see a picture I took of you on your profile, bravo. You've made me smile.

Keep up the good work.
