July 4, 2012
Started out with a photography class and shooting black and white in high school. From there graduated to 35mm film Nikon F in the 70's and finally to digital over the last ten years. All together I have been a serious photographer for almost 40 years.
Nikon D-80, favorites are the Nikon f/[masked]mm macro, f/[masked]mm rectilinear fisheye, f/[masked] zoom. I also use the[masked]mm f/[masked] telephoto and the 50mm f/1.8 Nikkor. I have many accessories also.
Learning is a lifelong process and I have discovered that no matter how much one knows, there are always new processes, techniques, ideas to be learned from the work of others. That is my goal in joining. I also like to see images captured by other photographers.
Photography is a lifelong passion of mine and since retiring from my geological career nine years ago, I have been able to devote time to learning the digital aspects of shooting and post processing. Nature and concert photography are my favorites.
Great group with a varied agenda, well organized!
