Blackmail Is The New Blackmail

I consider myself more of a blackmail photo-artist.

Anybody can take embarrassing photos of high-society members and sell them back for outrageous sums, but not everybody can do it will artistic flair. I try to capture the emotional ESSENCE of each dalliance at the Four Seasons, not just the bare FACTS. And that's why I choose the Nikon D3000 SLR with 18-55mm Lens Kit.

The Zoom NIKKOR VR Image Stabilization Lens ensures that I capture all the salient faces and actions for a successful blackmailing, but I want more than that. The Personal Picture Control settings let me set the mood and composition of each shot, ensuring that my creative sensibilities are expressed in each damning photo.

My blackmail photograph series are experiences that must be absorbed into the soul. Take some time with each piece. Note the underlying themes and motifs. And if you see yourself in any of them, please give me $10,000.

See? This Nikon camera pays for itself.
