Got my first digital camera a D200 in the Spring of 06. At first, I shot on auto and never realy liked the results. Then I took a introduction course at BetterPhoto and this helped me get off auto and take better photos. As one might see from my gallary, I enjoy my two dogs Ginger and Babe. Also, I enjoy the nature shots and my new obsession, photo painting. I live in Southern New Jersey in a small town. I have two children and a beautiful wife that puts up with my many hobbies.
