I've been a photographer most of my life. When very young, I used a Kodak Instamatic camera. Later there were a couple of others, and some years after in my mid-twenties, a Canon EOS 630. Then I quit for a while. Can't say I know why, life happens. But some years ago I decided to connect again and it's been very revealing to me, mostly that this is what I should have been doing all along. I do what I can with the time I have and I look forward to the time that it will be all I do.
As with many others, Ansel Adams had something to do with where they went with their art. In my case, what I learned is that there is a lot of work involved (if you want to do it well) before, during, and mostly, after an image is taken. A transformation takes place that, in my case, I take some pains to direct. To me, capturing the image, in itself, is an important but small part and is usually not enough. Not to say you can't get lucky, but at the very least, I try to make sure that what you see is of very high quality and that you won't be disappointed by the results.
I welcome any comments about my photographs or about the articles on my site, as they are an opportunity to learn and grow. Thank you for visiting and taking the time to look at what I have to offer. Hopefully, you can take a few steps with me in our journey and view some of what I've had the fortune to experience. I hope you enjoy what you see.
