My Mini-Pic

Hi, my name is Joe Marasco. I live in Central Pennsylvania with my wife, Eleanor. I have a son, a daughter, and five grandchildren. I am 70 years old. I am retired from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.
Photography is a relatively new hobby for me. After retiring in 2002, I became interested in photography. I purchased my first digital camera and started to take some pictures with it. I soon came to realize that my first camera just wasn’t sufficient to capture all that I wanted it to. So, I purchased a more sophisticated camera, and joined the local photo club that has pointed me to Better Photo. I am truly a novice at photography, but I am trying to learn all that I can about taking photos. I believe Better Photo is the place where I can do just that, along with the help and guidance from the photo club that I belong to. The president and leader of our club is William Raco. If you have visited his site at Better Photo, you will see firsthand that I have an excellent mentor. My favorite subjects to shoot are flowers, nature, animals, family, and friends. My Cameras are Canon ESO Rebel XTI,Canon G-11 & Canon 7D .
