Most days I consider myself an advanced amateur. I enjoy learning new photography tricks and techniques.
Various, but mostly nature (especially flowers & hummingbirds), including macro, some candid people shots, landscapes and travel.
All digital since summer 2001. Current equipment includes Panasonic DMC-GH3, Panasonic DMC-GH4, & Panasonic DMC-GX7 cameras with Olympus 12mm f/2.0, Panasonic[masked]mm, Panasonic 25mm f/1.4, Panasonic[masked]mm f/2.8, Panasonic 45mm f/2.8 macro, Olympus 75mm f/1.8, & Panasonic[masked]mm f/4-5.6 lenses, and & a set of extension tubes. I also occasionally use a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS or my cell phone.
I started with a Kodak Brownie in the mid to late 50's, got my first 35mm camera in 62, & traded up to a 35mm SLR in 1964 or 5. My interest in photography varied for several years until my first digicam in 2001. I haven't stopped shooting since.
I've always had a good time and look forward to more OVCC Meetups. Lots of friendly people to exchange ideas with and learn from.
