    Strange question, but Costco/Smartwool wool socks or black Hanes ankle socks from Ross with boots, and miscellaneous white socks from Ross for other shoes (sneakers/Frees).

    A Maybach is a German luxury automobile.

    In case you missed it, my response was a reference to the lyrics “Racks on racks on racks/Maybachs on bachs on bachs on bachs” by Kanye West.

    Here’s a picture of my taupe suede boots after almost two years so you can see for yourself.  Also paired with PBJ double indigo denim to answer the second part of your question, also up to your taste.

    Sorry for the late response.

    Just read the book thoroughly and take notes by hand, it helps a lot in remembering things.  Also put little post-it tabs in your textbook and bring it to school on test days so you can study key things right before.  Don’t sleep in class and stay afterward to talk to your teacher so that you can get good recommendation letters.  Good luck!

    Sand will be hard to keep clean, but I say desert boots are meant to be beaten up anyway.  Taupe is more a more neutral/less standout color but I say go for sand.

    Keep in mind that if you wear them with raws they’ll stain indigo a lot.

    Someone else has asked me the first question before: http://joeynotjoseph.tumblr.com/post/68032024881/what-really-sparked-your-interest-in-photography-how

    As to the second part, a very useful site for getting down photography basics is http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/ .  Experience is the best teacher and you can learn a lot from just experimenting and finding what you enjoy photographing.  It’s important to note that an important part of photography is post-processing (Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop) so try to obtain these softwares as well and play around with them.  Beginners tend to overdo the processing in terms of too much contrast, saturation, etc. but over time you will develop your own processing style.

    You can find good inspiration in terms of composition or locations on sites like 500px.com or 1x.com, the latter being more selective in the works they post, and finally the community on fredmiranda.com is excellent for critique, general advice, and just the work of some very talented photographers as well.  Good luck and you can always ask me specific things as well!
