Thanks again for coming to my site. I started taking picture when I received my first camera for my 10th birthday. I have three periods in my life that I have really considered to be important in my learning curve of photography.
First, was the experimental phase where I spent a better amount of time just fooling around with my film camera. This included work in the school photo labs where I learned the basic rules and methods of photography. I also learned how to develop film and black and white images using enlargers and chemicals.
Second, was when I was in my early twenty's, and ventured into the world of underwater photography. Not only did I have to learn to scuba dive and function with all the gear. I had to learn how to operate my camera equipment in a unforgiving environment. Unfortunately that was short lived. I had all my gear stolen out of my truck while I was parked in a mall parking lot.
The third period is where I am now. With the purchase of my first DSLR several years ago, I have really taken a new interest in photography from all angels. As technology improves so does my appetite for experimenting and learning new aspects of photography.
I am always trying to expand my knowledge. I try new things methods, gear and software. Some are winners and others are losers. The winners get post and the losers get put in the trash. This site has a very small percentage of what I think are my winners. Over time I will add more.
