I am a retired Navy Master Chief Photographer's Mate and enjoy all phases of digital photography. Digital has allowed me a new freedom; cost-free shooting and instant feedback. I use Photoshop CS-5 but, I am not an expert. I love dog photography.
North of Escondido
All over the city, state, country and world.
Canon DSLR bodies with mostly Canon lenses. I do use a few third party lenses from Tamron, Tokina and Sigma. 550EX and 420EX along with some studio strobe equipment.
Digital 100% although I have a long background in both film still photography and in professional cinematography.
The implosion was awesome! Well worth getting up early and sitting in the cold dawn. I enjoyed meeting everyone. Sheila really worked hard to make this event successful. Her efforts are appreciated. Thanks Sheila! Thanks also to Paul who loaned me a chair to sit in while I waited. That really helped my old bones...
Hey Richard...were you the one at the lighthouse today that was in the red vest and "first in line"? If so, I was standing right next to you the entire time. I am Gracie Doodle's Mom!!!!! We met a few years ago at the St. Patrick's Day parade when you brought Holly!
Can't wait to meet you Richard.
I also was a Master Chief in United States Navy my job for the first 15 years was a Interior Communications Electrician (IC) work with photographers for long time, via CC TV system interaction, kept my interest in photography.
Question are you using a tripod for the shoot?
See you later at the park. Membership dues- looks like February 12th!
Good luck with your errant computer, dear Richard!
See you at 11am!
There ARE extra models and locations now! boy o boy - if you want to shoot at the academy (daniel M will be in charge there) I think you will still have plenty of girls and not so many shooters in your way, so you can attend, if that sounds OK for you!
Richard so sorry not to be seeing you ... I have to credit you for an alternative shoot as not everyone can shoot at the academy on Wednesday! You are not in the line up ;-( but get choice of model next time OK!
