I am Dick or Richard Craven depending upon whether I am talking or writing my name. I am from Iowa. I got my first adjustable camera in 1964. It had no light meter and no range finder. I had my own black and white darkroom in the 70s and 80s. I have been using a digital camera since about 2000. I retired as a middle school math teacher in 2003 and my photography hobby has been more active since that time. I have been using Photoshop for maybe the last five years. Most of my learning comes from books but I have taken other photography and Photoshop classes. I elected to skip Photoshop I. Time will tell if that was a mistake but his class seems to contain what interests me. This is my first class from Betterphoto.com.
