structure, and a chance to improve my photography

What type of photography do you enjoy the most? People, landscapes, animals, fine art?

Ansel Adams

What kind of gear do you use? Do you still use film or are you all digital?

I just recently switched from Nikon to Canon; so a full canon line


I've loved photography for years. I now use photoshop in lieu of a darkroom and enjoy it. Primarily landscape photography, but I'm looking to branch out. I'm also looking for buddies for local photo trips.

    Patrick, I lost my job a while back and would love to do photo meetups but many seem to cost quite a bit. Can't you get the cost of them down a bit. I don't mind gas or park enterance fees but much more than that and it's a strech. -- Gary Oblock (I worked with you at Cloudshield)

    Seems like a plan - I would be interested in an occupational trips and like you hoping to break-out of landscapes/stil­l life into fine art that is more challenging than looking for light - the essence of photography
