Current Experience Level?

Blooming Professional, as the demand for my style of B&W images are selling, and that just blows my mind. Use Photoshop for Pre-Processing RAW images (cropping and adjusting Histogram etc), as most of the the Post Processing is done 97% in Silver Efex Pro 2.0 which I have finished taking some advance courses.

What is your favorite theme you photograph?

B&W, Macro, and odd unique geometry photography. Enjoy capturing those timeless images that B&W can produce. Am starting to get back into Color photography, by way of NIK software, and how it allows my creativity to flow, without being caught up in the Picture-Element (Pixel) frenzy that can blinds us.

What do you shoot with?

Canon 7D, Canon EF 180mm f/3.5 Macro L series lens, and Canon EF 16-35mm f/2,8L, Manfrotto rugged alum tripod, Manfrotto Micro Rail, and Canon wired remote....... Will be buying a 35mm Canon L series Prime lens to get back to into working for that perspective with our brains and body movements.

What do you hope to get out of the group?

Understanding other Work Flows and, while enjoying good company. Finding others that share my passion in B&W and Macro Photography (not just close-up). Really enjoy being exposed to different mindsets, and being challenged by mindful open discussions.


Two passions in life: (a) Dancing down a River in my kayak, (b) B&W Macro Photography, I am most fortunate in supplementing my income doing both while having blast at the same time- Now that is a sweet way to enjoy these golden years of retirement.

What Alberto is saying about this Meetup Group

Am enjoying the depth of this group and baby stepping my growth........... It is exciting in meeting others with my passion in B&W photography and it's timeless mindset... And also getting back into some Color photography.
