I have been a hobby photographer since high school. All I can remember from back then was my yearbook advisor telling me to keep the f stop at 9. LOL I shot in black and white, got some photos in the yearbook and was hooked! So, I guess I am now an intermediate hobbyist? I have entered my photos in county fairs, gotten everything from nothing up to Reserve Grand Champion. (I think it was Reserve Grand, might've been Just Reserve Champion.....my mind is not so young anymore - lol)
understanding the use of natural light
Scenic, landscape, nature, wildlife, flowers, macro, animals I would like to stretch myself by trying portraiture- I love candids, but have only done a very little of posed shots, and none with studio lighting
I am blessed with a Nikon D40 and a Nikon Coolpix sidekick. My motto is Shoot It All! I fly by the seat of my pants and don't read manuals, so I need a lot of help! I am passionate about photography, it feeds my soul!!!
Very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I felt at ease right away!!
