I am interested in all aspects of photography. I have been mostly doing landscape photography recently but I'm also interested in portraits, street photography, astro photography, macro, and documentary. I like B&W photography and converted my Nikon D300 to an infrared camera to capture monochrome digital images.
I started using film around 1960 (Jr. High School), shooting mostly 35mm but also medium format with a speed graphic. I developed and printed B&W in a basement darkroom. Since then, over the years, I have continued to take pictures and switched to digital around 5 years ago. I am familiar with the zone system and use the principles in determining exposure. I am a complete novice using image editing tools like Photoshop or Lightroom. I am a novice in the areas of composition and portrait lighting.

I have been interested in photography for a long time. I am attempting to learn how to capture and print images that I enjoy and have emotional impact.
