I started taking photographs many years ago when I took some black and white photography classes in college (back in the film days) but never did much with the hobby. Several years later, I took up mountain climbing and started taking snapshots with a cheap point-and-shoot. I quickly realized that I had a knack for landscape photography, especially considering the amazing wilderness locations that I hiked to. In 2014, I decided to get a bit more serious about my hobby. I don't do any special techniques like HDR, and I'm still learning how to use my overly-complicated DSLR. I have given up my old film cameras due to the pain and cost to get film developed. I use a Nikon D7100 with nothing more than a circular polarizing filter and a GND filter. I use Lightroom for processing.
I really love sharing my photos and reliving the moments, which are all unique. I wish I could be outside in the wilderness every day.
