What do you want to gain from being a member of this group?

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.

Do you have previous photography experience? (beginners through experts are welcome)

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/

Where is your favorite location to shoot?

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.

What type of camera do you currently use?

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.
