“You don’t take a photograph. You make one.” Ansel Adams
I bought my first “serious” camera when I was 13 years old. It was an Argus C3 and I think it cost $20. A few decades later, I purchased my first serious DSLR, a Canon 1D that cost $5500 without a lens! In the days of film, I used to love the magic of the darkroom. But today, I am much more enchanted with the magic of the digital process. For a person who sometimes lacks patience, the digital realm is perfect.
For much of my adult life, I taught high school history, English and philosophy. But for the last three years, I have taught photo/media in a two-year college. And while teaching subjects like Macbeth to 15 year olds was always a test of my teaching prowess, teaching photography has more than matched that challenge. But it has been a true joy.
As you can see from this blog, I enjoy landscape, macro and architectural photography the most. When I am at my best as a photographer, time, place and self evaporate and all that exists is what I see through my lens.
I hope you enjoy your visit here. You would make my day if you took a minute or two to drop a note and say hi! Just go to the bottom of this page. 🙂
