I love photography!

Photography is the art of capturing light created by God in a way that reveals the glory and grandeur of His creation. 

I became fascinated with photography with my first Kodak Instamatic back in the late 1960's. When I was a teenager, my dad bought me my first serious camera, a Yashica 35mm with internal metering. I built a darkroom in the family house inside a closet to develop my Tri-X and Plus-X films. I later upgraded my camera to a Canon F1 and have been a Canon devotee ever since.

Today I own Canon 40D and 5D with several Canon L Series lenses along with several standard prime lenses. My favorite lenses are the Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM, the Canon Macro EF100 f/2.8, and the Canon EF100-400 f/4.5-5.6L USM. I fully believe that you don't need the latest camera to take good pictures, but you do need good lenses. So, that's where I recommend to invest your hobby money. But most importantly, the most important photography tool is neither the camera or the lens, but the person holding them both. I use Adobe Lightroom extensively to organize and manage my images, and for most of my editing. But I do use Adobe Photoshop as well.

I enjoy all kinds of photography and wish I had more time to concentrate on this wonderful hobby. I encourage anyone interested in photography to jump in and learn as much as you can. Take lots of pictures!
