Occupaion: Retired Interests: Sailing, SCUBA, Watercolor painting and Photography Biography: I bought my first camera in 1970, but really got interested in photography in the 80's. Back then I did a few weddings and some portraits; however, my main objective was to take photos to use as reference for future watercolor paintings. I became spoiled by photography because it provided instant gratification. In the late 80's I started doing a lot of underwater photography. I have many underwater slides that need to be digitized, perhaps some day. Then, around 1990, I put my film cameras away, and never got them back out again. My work consumed me completely. Around 2000 I purchased my first digital camera but mostly took photos at family events. My first digital was a rangefinder; I wanted a SLR but they were outside of my budget at the time. Finally, a few years after retiring I decided it was time to take the plunge and buy that digital SLR. It took for ever to decide on the right camera. I thought Canon because I had a drawer full of Canon lenses. While on a family trip to the Dominican Republic, I got my hands on a Nikon D7000. It was love at first touch. It had all the features I wanted in a metal body and it just felt good in my hands. Buying the digital SLR has got my creative juices flowing again. I started surfing the Internet looking for photo related sites and stumbled onto I had never heard of HDR photography until then. The shots that I saw there blew me away. Now that I'm equipped with a good camera, new knowledge and time to spend on photography I look forward to many hours of enjoyment and a full hard drive. Website: not set
