Relative to downtown Cincinnati, where do you live? North, South, East or West?

Very close to UC, so pretty much right next to downtown.

What is your level of photography experience?What's a camera, Student, Novice, Amateur, Advanced Amateur, Professional, I invented the camera

Somewhere between "amateur" and "advanced amateur." I started out with a 110 when I was five-ish and have used 35mm P&S and SLRs, digital P&S and advanced P&S, and a DSLR over the last twenty-odd years. My father passed on his love of photography to me and nurtured my young skills with his 35mm Canon SLRs to give me a good foundation. I've entered and won prizes in several contests in my hometown and have put up two temporary galleries, one in my hometown library and another in a Dayton coffeehouse. My equipment is relatively basic, but I believe to a great extent that how you use what you have makes a bigger difference than what you have. Some of my stuff is posted here:

What are your areas of photography interest?a) Snapshots, b) Landscapes, c) Cityscapes, d) People,e) Animals, f) Sports, g) Macro, h) Architectual, i) Travel, j) Web Page

Landscapes Nature Animals Macro Mix & match for nature macro, animal macro... I'd like to get out into the city more and widen my portfolio with some cityscape and architectural shots. In other words, I'm interested in just about everything.

What type of equipment do you use? a) 35mm, b) View Camera, c) Digital, d) Point & Shoot, e) One Time Use

My current weapon of choice is an Olympus Evolt E-520 with the following lenses/accessories: 14-42mm Zuiko lens [masked]mm Zuiko lens [masked]mm Zuiko lens Set of +1, +2, +4 close-up rings and +10 macro ring Hotfoot mount flash Circular polarizer Remote control Tripod I also have an Olympus Stylus 800 advanced P&S around somewhere that got misplaced in the move. I really hope it shows up--that was a great little camera and what really got me started into serious digital photography.

Do you have abilities or techniques and knowledge that you are willing to share with this group?

Absolutely. One of the points of joining a photography club is to teach and learn from others, and I love to share techniques with other people. I know this is a very broad statement; I don't claim to be expert at any one technique, but I'm perfectly happy to explain how I got any one shot.


Hello, I moved to Cincinnati from Sidney, Ohio in 2011 to work as a GIS Technician. In addition to photography, I enjoy reading, writing, music, and cooking/baking.
