I'm Kyle, I'm 21, I'm from the Chicago area, and I like taking photos in abandoned houses and forests. This blog is all original content. A lot of the shots are self portraits. If you have any questions, comments, etc, I'd love to hear from you!
Lifestyle photos (2011-2013) by Kyle Thompson
These arent the normal photos I upload, but I want to start posting some more candid shots. They are some from the last 2 years. I actually made an album of 15, but then I learned tumblr only allows a maximum of 10 photos. So Ill maybe upload more some other time.
(These obviously look much better when you flip through them in high quality)

maggarino asked: advice for an aspiring, young photographer? :)
Shoot every day and try to make every photo better than the last. Figure out what you like about your favorite photos and incorporate that more, and find out what you dislike about your failed photos and try it again and again until it is perfect.

Anonymous asked: How are you not scared people are going to copyright your photos? I'm an aspiring photographer myself and I'm so scared someone is going to try to pass a photo off as their own.
I’m not too worried. I dont think any one would actually copyright my photos because it would be very easy for me to prove that they are mine. As for stealing the photos otherwise, I just ignore it. I’ve seen people edit themselves into my photos and claim it as their own, and Ive even had some one tell me they saw a street vendor selling my photos. But most people seem to be good about it, and it seems like I’m almost always credited for my work when I see it online. My idea is that the more people who see it, the better. It really does suck when I see a photo of mine on tumblr with 20,000 notes and no credit, but I prefer that over it not being posted at all. If its a big deal, you can watermark your photos, but I personally find that to be distracting and I don’t like doing that. Also dont post your high-res photos online. That way, even if people print it out themselves, it wont be as high quality.
