Over 40 years. At age 15, I received my first SLR 35mm film camera (Pentax K1000), which allowed me to turn every high school and college project into a photography presentation. I have worked extensively with 4x5 sheet film and medium format for over 10 years. I been using digital cameras since 1999 and started using Adobe Photoshop v 2. (that didn't have an undue function). I have taught several forensic photography classes around the country including Southern Crescent in Griffin, GA. For over 12 years I helped write standards and best practices for forensic digital photography for law enforcement agencies around the country to ensure their images are accepted into court. Since 2010, I have been doing a photography project (A Year Behind The Lens) that involves capturing one photo each week for 52 weeks or an entire year. The project was inspired by the desire to improve my images in collaboration with other photographers.

Advanced film and dark room. Advanced digital camera. Advanced scientific forensic photography. Intermediate Adobe Photoshop. Intermediate digital printing. Life long learner of the craft. Enjoy learning new things and sharing ideas.
I have seen the club in Chapel Hill News for over a year. But I was invited to the Serenbe Photo Club and have been there for 2 years. Hoke invited me to attend Sweetwater. I have enjoyed the meetings and decided to become a memeber.
Yes. I have three places where I post my images. General Photography:http://carl.kriigel.com/ The Year Behind the Lens 52 week project site:http://photos.kriigel.com/ And flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/30690701@N02/
