Interests: Photography, music, biking Biography: My serious interest in photography goes back to 1959 when I started to work in a darkroom. I shot 120 roll film for many years before switching to 35 mm. Meanwhile, I did all my own developing and printing in both b/w and color. It was certainly the way to learn photography. Around 1998, I left the darkroom for Photoshop. In those days, it was a matter of convenience but today, I believe that digital cameras and software have conventional photography beat in all regards. The ability to fine tune photographs or rather, small areas, is astonishing.
I shoot landscapes, people, sports and events. My main gear is the Canon 18-200 mm, Sigma 70-200 mm f/2.8, Sigma 50-500 mm, Expodisc, polarizer, lens hood, Cokin graduated neutral density filters, tripod and Canon 550 EX flash. My software is Lightroom and Photoshop.
Photography is an ever-changing science and art. You never stop learning.
