Although I am happy to share my experiences and techniques, I would like to learn more from others in the group. I am a perpetual student.
I consider myself to be an experienced amateur. I started in 35mm film photography in the early 1970s. In the early 2000s, I experimented with point and shoot digital cameras. In 2007, I purchased my Canon Digital Rebel XT to put all my old Pre-AI Nikkor and made for Nikon MF lenses back in use, this time digitally. Each step has been a learning process and has made me a better photographer. I have a flickr gallery, if you desire to view my work. www.flickr.com/photos/cyberastrofolkie/
I prefer wildlife sanctuaries. I have done some extensive imaging in the area of Wilton, NY, in search of the endangered specie Karner Blue Butterfly.
Two DSLRs, Canon Digital Rebel XT and Pentax K20D. I have amassed a collection of used manual focus 35mm film camera lenses I share between the two cameras.
I am a 63 y.o. male, semi-retired, active digital photographer. I live in Sharon, Ct.
I'm enjoying the group immensely.
