Master photographer Harold Davis is the bestselling author of many books about digital photography and Photoshop, including The Photoshop Darkroom series from Focal Press and the Creative Photography series from Wiley Publishing.

Please tell me about your interests in photography....

My special interests in photographic genres include flower photography, waterdrops, digital black and white, still life compositions, portraiture, night photography (particularly star trails in the wilderness landscape), HDR, figure photography, and anything that is difficult and zany.

What is your level of experience as a photographer?

Photographic adventures and assignments have taken me across the Brooks Range, the northernmost mountains in Alaska. I have photographed the World Trade Towers, hanging out of a small plane, followed in the footsteps of Seneca Ray Stoddard, a 19th-century photographer of the Adirondacks, and created human interest photo stories about the residents of Love Canal, an environmental disaster area. My work has been published in books and magazines, and as posters and greeting cards. His prints are widely collected. "Harold Davis is an award-winning professional photographer and widely recognized as one of the leading contemporary photographers. He is the author of many bestselling photography books."

Are there any specific topics or subjects in digital photography that you would like to see me present?

I would like to facilitate the members of this group, and help each of you grow the creative potential within you. I am open to trying a number of different approaches to achieving this goal, and I appreciate your input and feedback.
