How long have you enjoyed photography? What got you into it?

I just started photography. My wife got me into it when she needed an assistant for a wedding she was shooting. I do a lot of computer and design work so I'm a fast learner and before I knew it I was knee deep in the technology of digital photography and I saw the potential in it for artistic expression. I also had a blast helping my wife and it's awesome to share this hobby with her.

What kind of camera do you use, and what is your favorite lens?

I use a Nikon D70 and my favorite lens so far (I haven't used many) is a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX for Nikon.

What type of photography do you most enjoy (e.g. portraiture, landscape, macro, street photography, nature, candid, etc.)?

I'm most interested in landscape shots, trains, and HDR photography. I also started assisting my wife on her shoots. I enjoy the artistic expression of photography gives me. It's more about expressing who I am and what I find beautiful rather than capturing a moment in time. But I also like the idea of giving people something different to look at that they may not have seen before or changing their perspective on what "looks good"

How would you like to improve your photography? What are your goals?

I would like to become much better at using the rule of 3rds and composition for artistic shots and artistic portraits. I would also like to learn more about lighting and become better at using HDR or layering exposures in Photoshop to create more dynamic lighting effects. I also would like to learn more about how SLR technology works and know the fine details of photoshop as it pertains to photography particularly tips and tricks for post production editing.

How did you hear about our group?

My wife.
