I am an original Maconite with extensive travel. I began photography by first using film-the old Super 8 mm-during the start of my U.S. Army tour in 1972. I was stationed in Europe and traveled as much as possible. In 1973, I got my first SLR shoved in my hand with a few tips on focusing. By the time I got back stateside, the camera and I parted our ways due to workload. Military Intelligence was not too keen on me walking around restricted areas taking candid shots.
In the mid 80′s, I started shooting again until work forced me to put my passion to rest once again. I wanted to start again in 2008 and now nothing will force me to stop shooting. The digital age has given me three cameras to work with; Nikon’s D300s, D60, and a CoolPix.
My current lens inventory: Nikkor 18-55 mm f3.5-5.6, 55-200 mm f3.5-5.6, and my Tamaron fast glass 70-200 mm f2.8
My interest is fueled to take balanced shots by trial and error. I have picked up some new techniques by surfing the photo sites on the internet.
No awards at this time. I did get one of my shots chosen to be on the MacWorld digital photo website as a teaching tool for time and motion rendering. I am getting a free book for my talent. I guess that means I have been published since MacWorld is a national magazine.
Areas of Interest:
Landscape (primarily waterfalls and cascading streams), nature, portrait, events, and sports. Eventually, I will get into the seniors portrait area and models.
