I have been involved in photography for about 25 years. My interest started with film based SLR's taking pictures of my kids playing football and lacrosse. I actually bought one of the first digital cameras, a Sony DSC1. It was fun but the picture quality was dreadful. As soon as the first DSLR's came out I bought one. I reverted back to Nikon (which had been my film camera) so I could use my Nikon lenses. I currently have a Nikon D300 and am about to purchase a Nikon D800.

I love taking pictures. I also enjoy working them in Photoshop. There are so many wonderful things you can do. I believe every good photo has 2 or 3 pictures in in it. You can release them by effective cropping and/or adding effects or layers of effects. It's a lot of fun. I call them "the picture within the picture".... I think I read that somewhere.

These days I have been focusing on travel photos because, due to a heavy work schedule, I haven't had the time to do the fun stuff. I am, however, interested in exploring m ore macro photography, HDR and time lapse photography.

Finally, I am generally pleased with my composition and my photoshop work. I am, however, always frustrated that I am not a great mechanic with my cameras and don't push their capabilities as far as they can be pushed. My goal for 2013 is to learn the camera and its features so I can be great at all aspects of photography. Let me know what youo think of my work.
