In late March of 2006 I finally made the jump from a Nikon[masked]mm camera to my first digital SLR, a Nikon D70s!
I've been in 48 states and 6 Canadian provinces. My favorite place to visit is beautiful Catalina Island. I want to see Ireland someday soon.
I need to learn more about making the jump from film to digital. Also, I love to network! Check me out on MySpace, where most of my friends are members of the San Diego Music Scene -- http://myspace.com/shycloud
In the 1970s I bought 30-day Greyhound Bus passes four years in a row and explored the USA and Canada all by myself, meeting all sorts of interesting people! I still like to get out and go somewhere new from time to time.
The late, great, local portrait photographer Victor Avila taught me tons about composition in the early 1980s, during the two years we worked together while I was the yearbook adviser for the Academy of Our Lady of Peace in Normal Heights.
A pro photographer since 1973, I've shot over 550 singers and bands at coffee houses and bars, and also performances or dress rehearsals of more than 40 plays for over a dozen theater groups! See my work at http://ShyCloud.c....
It's a great group of very friendly people, who love images and the cameras that capture them.
