Hello, my name is Larry Jackson and my wife Susan and I live in S. Jersey. I retired 2 Yrs. ago and got intrested in photography again. In the 70's I shot some macro photography but nothing since.
Since retiremnet it has become a real passion. I started with a Pentax system, shot slides and enjoyed it very much. Being a beginner I make many mistakes, so I shot a lot of slides....very expensive.
Three months ago I switched to digital and I love it. I use A Fuji S2-Pro and no more wasted slides.
I shoot mostly nature and wildlife and especially enjoy macro photography. We live on a lake so I don't have to go far for subjects.
I really enjoy macro photography because I've found the smaller things nature has to offer are often the most facinating.
Another passion are hummingbirds. I find them very beautiful and a real challange to shoot.
We have three cats and also enjoy photohraphing them, especially my Pookey.
As a beginner I need all the help I can get and would appreciate constructive comments from fellow photographers. I hope you enjoy my photos.
Thank you, Larry.
