My name is Charlie Jordan and I am a new member. I have loved photography since I was about 9 years old. Studied it a bit in college in the 60's, mostly black and white back then. I learned a lot about lighting, framing, location, natural light, exposures and a lot more. It gave a good foundation to build on.
I have been using Canon cameras for about 30 years and will continue to do so. Nothing against Nikon, Sony, etc., I am just committed to Canon and I am way to old to change now. I am retired now and can spend much more time taking photos. I have a new Canon R with several lenses including my 100 to 400 telephoto which I use most of the time. I am primarily interested in Birds and Wildlife, but interested in all subjects.
I will publish some of my photos in the near future. Not perfect by any means, but I am getting used to this new camera and improving every day.
I am looking forward to participating in this forum.
Welcome to the forum, Charlie! Great choices for your camera system and lenses. Look forward to seeing some of your photos! (I, too, got my start back in the 60's and 70's, but with Nikon.)
Welcome to the forum Charlie. Enjoy your Canon R camera and good luck.
Thank you George!
Good to have you aboard, Charlie. I suspect you will thoroughly enjoy the ride. This is the only forum that I get up in the night (my kids accuse me of being up in the night) to check out the new issue. We will look forward to seeing your work.
Welcome to the HOG!
BTW on occasion I get down your way.
