It was a year ago today I stumbled upon this site and has since been a part of my daily morning coffee routine. I never did introduce myself so thought what better time than now.
My interest in photography started as a teenager and I found myself as the photographer for my high school yearbook way back in the mid 60’s. My school had a wonderful audio-visual lab and some wonderful equipment for me to use. I was enthralled with Crown Graphic 4 x5 and shot sports events with it using both sheet film and a roll film adapter. I also had use of a twin lens reflex camera and a Pentax 35mm SLR. The school had a very nice darkroom where I processed all my images.
My first personal camera was a Yashica Electro 35 I bought while serving in the Navy. In the late 70’s I bought a Nikon FE and have been a Nikon guy ever since moving up to an N80 just prior to the digital SLR’s coming out. First digital was a D70, then a D5100 and presently a D750. I’m slowly acquiring glass to meet my interests which include macro, landscape, grandkids, dogs and astronomy.
I really enjoy this group and have learned a lot and hope to keep the learning curve moving up.

Welcome! Nice to meet you! Looks like you have a wonderful history in photography. So lucky to have had the lab facility! I have only been taking photos since 2007 and have so much to learn! I was fortunate to have a mentor, who learned using film and slides, take me under his wing a few years ago. He studied from the works and teachings of Eliot Porter. My landscape photography improved 10 fold by listening and seeing through Don's eyes. I now create abstracts as well. I also see you are a pilot! What great opportunities must have come from that! Look forward to seeing your work.
