My father and older brother took photos. We built a home darkroom when I was 8 and I was hooked. I also attended MICA when I was a child to study charcoal, pastel and watercolor. I have other artistic interests as well.
I have already found the photographs and discussion of images and technique very interesting.
Ansel Adams is certainly one. I also enjoy looking at National Geographic and photo magazines to analyze the lighting, composition and where the photographer positioned himself for the particular image.
I have been coming to your meetings, when possible, since July 2010. I have been making images for 55 years. I have had solo shows in 1996 and 2006. My general dental office is set up like a gallery, and I have often sold photos to patients.
